I Saw God Do It!

Divine Encounter in Guayaquil

Preach resurrection of Jesus Christ www.AbideInChrist.com/
Wil translating for Jerry Starnes preaching on resurrection of Jesus Christ in a Quichua Church in Guayaquil, Ecuador.

"Then our mouth was filled with laughter, And our tongue with joyful shouting; Then they said among the nations, 'The LORD has done great things for them.' The LORD has done great thing for us; We are glad. . . . Those who sow in tears shall reap with joyful shouting" (Psalm 126:2-5).

Christ is alive! Jesus Christ is alive!

No one expected Him to be alive on that first Easter morning.

That one event changed the entire world. No other religion has a risen Savior.

It is the greatest message in the entire world. When you read through the opening chapters of Acts, the enemies of the Gospel could not shut the apostles up. They refused to stop preaching the cross and the resurrection of Christ.

I recently translated for Jerry Starnes as he preached his sermon on 1 Corinthians 15 several times. I enjoyed translating as I never have before. The sense of God's presence and power in each of the services was powerful. The simple verse by verse presentation was exceptionally well done.

The power of the resurrection became so evident as we began a conversation with a couple who owned a small garage store at their house in Guayaquil, Ecuador. It very hot, so we bought ice-cream bars on the stick from them. I guided the conversation to their relationship with Jesus Christ. The lady was a Catholic, and her husband an evangelical Christian. At first she didn't want anything to do with us. I turned to Jerry and nodded for him to begin sharing the plan of salvation. As he took them down the plan of salvation along the Roman Road, the lady began to warm up and show interest. Her husband quoted the scriptures Jerry was sharing. In the past they did not discuss the Bible together. The Spirit of God was encouraging the husband along, and she was coming powerfully under conviction. At the same time their love for one another was evident and beautiful. Jerry asked the woman, "Would you like to accept Jesus Christ as your Savior right now?" The radiant instant smile across her face was like a thousand watt light. "Yes!" was the reply. He husband jumped up from where he was sitting and grabbed her up in his arms in a warm embrace. I have never seen two people so happy. I led her in a prayer to receive Christ. Jerry gave them counsel to encourage her new faith in Christ. Before leaving we encouraged them to read their Bible together beginning with Romans. They enthusiastically said yes, and the lady said they never have in the past because of their religious differences. Now they are truly one in Christ.

Andes city of Totogalpa, Ecuador www.AbideInChrist.com/missions/
City of Totogalpa, Ecuador where Abide in Christ conducts evangelism workshops for evangelical Quichua churches.

In these rugged Andean mountains there is a hunger for the Good News of Jesus Christ. Everywhere the Chimborazo Quechua speaking believers have gone over the last sixty years they have started churches. In Guayaquil there are 105 Quichua churches. Some are small home churches while others are much larger with hundreds of members. Abide in Christ is committed to providing personal evangelism training to these Quichua evangelical churches.

On Easter Sunday I preached on John 20 at the Christian Evangelical Center "Camino a Damasco" in  Gatazo. That night I preached at the Genesis Bilingual Church in Riobamba. During the week I presented doctrinal studies on salvation, justification by faith and eternal security in these mountain churches in Chimborazo Province and Peniel Theological Seminary in Riobamba.

The Nueva Amanecer Evangelical Church has 200 active members composed of engineers, lawyers, school teachers, medical doctors, business men, etc. The church has its own home for the elderly, scholarly Bible classes, special conferences on Christian discipleship and evangelism outreach. I gave a presentation on eternal security to a packed house of intense listeners. Two years ago I presented a three day evangelism conference. At Cocan I gave a two day conference on salvation and justification by faith to a group of Quichua women. There is a desire to grow spiritually.
