Greetings! God has been faithful to draw the unsaved to Himself.
We have seen a steady flow of visitors in our services, and several have prayed for salvation. We are following up and praying that God will lock them in. Several have been baptized in water and baptized with the Holy Spirit. One young man got so filled with the Holy Ghost that he continued to speak in tongues for quite a while. When he finished, his whole countenance had changed. Glory to God!
God has opened an off-site venue for our biweekly concerts at the New Mexico Highlands University. God is using the concert ministry to reach the unsaved, and we have seen several visitors attend from the campus and the city.
We had a timely Holy Ghost revival in January with Evangelist Mark Benavidez. God used him bring messages that refreshed God’s people, and to speak specific words into the congregation as a whole, and into the lives of visitors and individuals. Several were saved, healed, and filled with the Holy Ghost with the evidence of speaking in tongues.
February brought two key annual events, the first of which was our Valentines marriage seminar with Evangelist Fred Gonzales, Sr. and his wife, Mary Lou. He challenged us to let God renew and refresh our marriages and our commitments to each other. At our father-daughter seminar, Pastor Rubi challenged fathers to be their daughters’ protectors and their holy covering. He also challenged the daughters to be willing to respond to their fathers’ love and care for them.
In March we had an outreach to one of our care groups that is located in the small village of Villanueva. As one of our Spanish bands, “Los Testamentos,” performed, skits were presented, and food was served, eight precious souls responded to the message of salvation. Praise God!
Till next time…
Pastor Ray Rubi
