Our sincere thanks to everyone who prayed for and supported the crusade. Several thousand people came to hear the message of Jesus Christ and His love for them. We witnessed the testimonies of many asking Jesus into their hearts and others being healed. We were also able to experience breakthrough anointing. We now look forward to God's transforming grace - transforming Los Cabos for Him! Thank You for your support!
On Wednesday, April 20, Pastor Michael Galles asked Richard and I to see if he and his wife Laura could meet with Carlos Annacondia. Casa Bella Hotel, the hotel that has graciously let the Annacondia team stay without cost for an entire year of visits, is less than half a block from Cabo Church. Carlos graciously agreed to the meeting. We found out with our stay with Carlos that he walks in gentleness and humility, despite his notoriety and he loves people. Several times during the visit, his sons had to gently move their father on to the next location because he lovingly spends time with anyone of any social status.
He spent an entire hour with us as Pastor Michael sincerely asked Carlos what he could teach us from his 33+ years in ministry. It was definitely a time to cherish and remember. Since we were in charge of transportation, food, etc., we spent much time with him and his character is all we expected and more! We were greatly blessed to meet such a man of God.
After three days of Carlos Annacondia sharing the gospel with the people of Los Cabos, it was time for the lights and stage to come down. Pictured here is the stage being disassembled. Also pictured here is part of the Carlos Annacondia team, which is currently north of Los Cabos in La Paz. We are sending the fire north. Praying for not just Los Cabos, but for the entire baja, and the entire nation to be set on fire with the love of Jesus Christ! The team is pictured here in front of the Casa Bell Hotel. A huge thank you and abundant blessings to the family of Carlos Ungson, who opened his hotel to the team this trip, as well as the preparation visits.
This man was healed Tuesday night. He was standing straight and walked up to the stage Wednesday night during testimony time. He had been in a wheelchair for seven months and the doctor told him that if he could walk, his heart wouldn't take it and he would die within five minutes. On Tuesday night, though, he shared how God had healed him. He started dancing and running awkwardly. By testimony time on Wednesday night, he was straight and strong. Praise God!
Diego, Carlos Annacondia’s son-in-law, estimated 4,000 people attended the final evening of the Carlos Annacondia, Los Cabos Crusade. The people packed in along the sides near the front, as well as filled the 2,350 chairs. The message was on the need for forgiveness and the freedom that comes from it. The entire ministry area in the front was immediately packed when the altar call was given. We did break through! There was a powerful anointing at the altar.
The second night of the Crusade was once again well attended, with roughly 3,000 people present. When the altar call was given, the front was once again packed. The people rushed forward for salvation, for healing, and for a variety of other needs. God did not disappoint. He met the people where they were at, breaking chains and setting people free. We are excited to see the breakthrough annointing in this city!
One of the highlights of the evening was a presentation to the mayor's wife. Mayor Arturo, who has been been a blessing in his support of the crusade, had to be in Mexico City, but his wife attended in his place. She was presented a Bible for him and a bouquet of flowers for her. Upon invitation, another couple involved in local government attended the Crusade, as well. It was a blessing to see those in authority over our city in attendance, supporting the name of Jesus Christ and transformation. Another blessing was having the opportunity to pray for them. Pictured here is Pastor Carlos praying while several of the pastors' wives layed on hands and prayed for the mayor's wife.
Carlos Annacondia took the stage Monday night for the first evening of the Crusade. There were approximately 2,500 people in the crowd. When it came time for the altar call, more than 400 people came forward for salvation. Many more came forward for healing and for prayer. We were able to hear many testimonies of miraculous healings. We look forward to tonight and tomorrow as the anointing and the atmosphere continues to increase. Los Cabos, Jesus loves you!
The Crusade site is taking shape as the stage, several tents, lighting, sound, and other elements have been set up. Three hours until the crusade officially begins...
Carlos Annacondia arrived in Los Cabos this afternoon. Several of the Annacondia team members went with Richard and I to pick him up from the airport. The rest of the team is busy preparing the site for the crusade. We are excited going into tonight! Continue to pray, not just for the Crusade, but for true revival - that Los Cabos will never be the same!
The liberation and intercession teams met yesterday (Sunday night) for training. The evening began with worship. The teams are pictured here praising God and getting ready for the freedom only found in Christ Jesus!
Those attending the liberation and intercession training also had the opportunity to meet two of the other members of the Annacondia team: Elias’ twin brother Moises and Brother Hugo from Argentina. Brother Hugo is the deliverance Minister for the Annacondia ministry and has been for the past 20 years.
