I got this email this morning from the elder pictured:
estamos bien, estamos practicando algo de sus enzeñanzas aca en la iglesia y el pastor esta muy feliz.
formamos el equipo de interseccion y iniciamos el domingo con cuatro hermanos.
Translated into English, this says
We are well, we are practicing something of your teachings there in our church and our pastor is very happy [about it]
We are forming a team of intercessors and are beginning this Sunday with 4 brothers.
I spoke on developing a team for your apostolic work — that of planting churches. Yet some of the principles are just as valid for ongoing church work — particularly having a team of personal intercessors for the pastor.
I spoke of the value of our intercessors, and the value of a team praying for us personally and this elder took it to heart and back to his church. I’m hoping to preach in this church next time I am in his village — a date potentially scheduled in October of 2009.
