Greetings from Chula Vista, California! After our conference of 2015, the church quickly raised enough money to send me on a mission trip in August. I had the privilege of ministering in both Belo Horizonte, Brazil and Buenos Aires, Argentina. God poured out His Spirit in both places with salvations, healings, and Holy Spirit baptisms with the evidence of speaking in tongues. It was a wonderful opportunity for our church to make an investment in overseas ministries.
This year we had revival services with evangelists Jerry Fussell, Julio Blanco, and James Wilkins, all of whom gave words of timely encouragement. Our revival with Julio Blanco was memorable in that one of our faithful disciples who had been seeking to be baptized in the Holy Spirit for several years was filled at last. It was definitely a time of breakthrough and rejoicing.
This year I turned the reins of the bible studies for adults and youth over to two faithful disciples. It so good to see these men rise up and take responsibility for ministry, and they are both doing a good job.
For the first time in the history of our church, we participated in a winter parade. We put together a nativity scene, and our young people passed out church flyers as we paraded down the street. Thousands were in attendance, and we definitely got our name out there. The church has a bright future with church kids coming of age and disciples rising up.
Thank you for all of your support, Tucson!
Pastor Joaquin Orosco
