On June 28, Cabo English Church was allowed to resume Sunday morning service due to the ability to follow the strict safety procedures for Covid-19, but Cristo es el Camino could not commit to being able to follow all the procedures. At that time, churches were still limited to no more than fifty people.
Since they were not able to open up any of Cristo es el Camino’s three churches, Pastor Carlos chose twenty leaders who had access to a location where they could lead all three of their weekly services; Sunday evening, Thursday evening mid-week and Prayer meeting on Friday evenings. The twenty church locations were asked to continue sharing pictures of their groups on Cristo es el Camino’s What’s App phone application, so they could see the church family that they could still not have fellowship with.
The plan was successful, but as of the third week in July, the faithful began to grow weary of the extended isolation in their homes, along with multiple services without the worship and fellowship that is so much a part of their lives. Pastor Carlos posted an encouraging word via What’s App, but the truth is, not everyone in the flock is normally committed to all three services, let alone when some of their groups are small and may not have one of the more experienced leaders.
Please pray for the hearts of our brothers and sisters to be strengthened, as well as for our state’s (Southern Baja California) Governor Mendoza to release the Municipality of Los Cabos from the strict guidelines, which may be necessary for many other cities in Mexico, but not for our isolated, relatively small municipality.
