Busy season…

Posted: October 22, 2013 in 300 GOAL, Life in Cali, Prayer Requests, preparations, Testimonies

We arrived back to Cali, Colombia on Sept 11 after our whirlwind travels lasting 3 months  and we had a week to prepare for a 2 week (Sept 18 – Oct 1) short term team of 8 from the Prairie Lakes District.  It was a blessed time to be with pastors from our grass roots. They were renewed and revived during their time here in Cali and they are staying in tight contact supporting one another in their prayers. A week and a half after their departure we received another team on a Vision Tour consisting of 5 people who were with us from Oct 11 – 15. They were here to get an inside look at the work and vision of Extreme. With these two projects completed we are at 95 of our 300 goal.  Here are a few comments from their time here.

Prairie Lake District Team

” I came here like ‘butter spread over too much bread.’ I am leaving having seen God, heard God and been renewed by God. Ready to have a deeper walk, a deeper prayer life and a deeper love for others. Love, deeply love, enough to share my Christ more fervently.” Pastor Dave Foshee (Prairie Lakes District Team)

Vision Tour

“Participating in the vision tour has shown me that God works mightily through the obedience of extreme discipleship. WOW! Cali was nothing that I expected. Instead of a drug and violence ravaged city without God, I saw the mighty hand of God redeeming a people because of the fervent persistence and obedience of a few Christians. What an example for us!”   Kristine Himelick (Vision Tour)

Up and coming….we now have 29 days of preparation to receive the next church planting team who will be planting a church in Ibarra, Ecuador. They will be here from Nov 21 – Dec 19. This is a full team consisting of 14 adults and 3 children for 30 days. We will also have some others who will be coming through at the same time. We are in prayer that we will be in a new house by that time, but we need God to work and to soften the heart of the owner so we can leave our contract in good standing.

I (Alyson) will also be attending the Women’s Congress at the Cali House of Prayer on Nov 1 and 2. I am looking forward to how God will speak into my life during these two days.

Be sure to take a look at our new link at the top of our blog page titled CALENDAR OF EVENTS to keep up with what is happening in Cali. We welcome your prayers in support of what is happening here.

One of our next posts will focus on an exciting big step that God is leading us into, stay tuned!
