On Friday, August 14, Elias Annacondia, evangelist and event coordinator for his father Carlos Annacondia, along with ministry evangelist Leonardo Castagnari, arrived in Los Cabo for their second coordination visit. The main purpose of this trip was to bring in new pastors that had not heard or seen Elias’ presentation and to form the committees—with one or more pastors chairing each committee—as necessary for any pre-crusades and the main crusade in April of 2016. The pre-crusades are a practice run for the readiness of the various committees, as well as an opportunity to bring in new converts, set captives free, bring healing to many (which testimonies then bring others to the main crusade) and to continue the change in the spiritual atmosphere of the area.
Pastor Roberto Ugaide from Iglesia Avivamiento para las Naciones (Revival for the Nations Church), hosted the two pastors’ meetings at his church. We just met Pastor Roberto at our regular pastors’ meeting the previous month, but he joined the pastors’ group with open arms and is eager to help. We give a big thanks to Pastor Ugaide, his precious wife, and their excellent team of co-laborers from Avivamiento. Their hospitality was over the top!
On Sunday, Richard and I went in different directions in order to have Elias and Leo be available to minister in different churches. We were able to schedule both of them, morning and night, with great results. It was a day of much ministering and many blessings!
On Monday morning, August 17, we again said goodbye to the staff at Casa Bella (the Ungson family’s boutique hotel) and drove our two guests to our capitol city of La Paz for their meetings with the pastors there. We again cannot thank the Ungson family enough as they have welcomed Elias and Leo and provided hotel accommodations for both visits as a donation to the crusade. Please pray abundant blessings over this godly family and all their endeavors.
As you look at the pictures, we did have several of our key pastors out of town on family holidays, being just before the start of school, but we were blessed by several new pastors joining the ranks. Please continue to pray for unity and involvement for those pastors we have not yet reached, as well as those who are having trouble embracing a multi-denominational event.
