If you have been reading this blog, and the daily updates throughout the crusade week, you have a read many stories of the encounters the people of Nicaragua have had with Jesus.
But there are many other encounters that take place that are not a direct result of someone receiving food or personal ministry.
In Matthew 5:16 Jesus said, “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.” We have personally experienced the truth of this verse this week.
As we go along passing out food and stuffed animals, people in the villages see what we are doing. They watch and wonder who we are and why we are here. When we tell them that we have come to bless their country for Jesus, they really do praise God for our good work.
On Wednesday two of the executives from the Hilton joined us for our devotions. We were told that during the negotiations for securing the hotel for this trip, they began asking about what we do.
LOLI has been using Hilton hotels for several years now, so Stephen and the LOLI leadership has developed a relationship with the Hilton management.
When they were told about the distribution during the week, the two executives that joined us for devotions were there to also join us for distribution.
They have seen LOLI bless Honduras and now Nicaragua. They have been impressed by our dedication and love for the people of Central America. They saw our good works, and the Lord using it to open their eyes to His love.
Today we went high into the mountains to a small village. In this village a church has a school and feeding center for children. This is where we decided to have the people of the village gather together.
When we arrived, there were over 200 people including 100 plus children. When the call for salvation was given, about 50 children came forward. It was a very precious sight to see and hear all those children praying to Jesus.
