"He is no fool who gives up what he cannot keep to gain that which he cannot lose" (Jim Elliot, Missionary Martyr in the 1950's)

Pastor Carlos Eisenhart and Philip and the instillation of the Christian Nation Church manual in Columbia. Two pastors were licensed or ordained on that day as well.

Pastor Pablo Pilmore as he preaches at a house church in Bogota.

Pastor Marcos Becker as he teaches at the Institute in Bogota.

Daryl Hausman as he preaches at a church in Paraiso.

Thank you Philip for doing such a wonderful job at interpreting. God was definitely helping you! Philip interpreted for all 12 messages / teaching lessons as well as interpreting Spanish to English for our benefit.

Some plant and some water but God gives the increase! (Apostle Paul) Amen and Amen

This is what a person looks like before drinking Columbian Coffee!

Yes, I actually drank some coffee!
After some Columbian Coffee!

Enjoying part of God's wonderful Creation!

This is just outside of Bogota and is very beautiful! When we arrived, the fog / clouds were so thick we could not see the falls or the other side of the gorge. God gave us a special treat and moved the clouds away so we could enjoy His creation.

I tried to be safe and stay a good distance from the drop off, about 3 or 4 feet!
These bugs sure do have a lot of nutrition in them.

This is my nephew whose a typical little child. Put it in your mouth and see how it tastes!

It's a toy bug that was given to his older brother!
Thank the Lord for traveling mercies as we went to Bogota, Columbia, South America.

Here's a picture of my traveling companions! What a motley looking crew. :)

Pictured here is Pastor Marcos, Pastor Carlos, & Pastor Pablo as they were known in Columbia. Since my name didn't translate into Spanish, Pastor Jimmy had a real difficult time in saying it. It was quite humorous to hear him try to pronounce it.

We want to thank you for your prayers already! The team has arrived safely and God has been working mightily already! God has been moving on hearts and His presence has been so evident in each and every service. We give God all of the praise for all that has been accomplished thus far. Souls have been saved and there have been seekers of heart holiness. Thank you so much for your prayers thus far!

We do covet your continual prayers through the next 2 days of ministry here. Much is planned but we must have God's divine help! There are hungry hearts and much wisdom is needed but most of all, the power of God is needed. Would you help us pray that God's kingdom would be advanced through Salvation and Heart Holiness and that God would continue to raise up leaders who are filled with the Spirit.

Spring is here! Well, let's say we hope it's here, real soon!

I've been way too busy lately, thus the reason for no updates. I would like to bring an urgent need to you and ask if you could pray for the upcoming Missions Trip that Daryl will be going on (March of 09). He will be traveling with several of the men from Church to visit the Dickinson family in Columbia, South America. All of the men will be speaking at the very first, Lord willing with many more to come, Christian Nation Church Congress. The men will be preaching and teaching as well as the Ordination of some Columbian pastors under the Christian Nation Church.

Please pray that the financial needs will be met, physical protection, traveling mercies, but more importantly that God would move mightily bringing lost souls to the kingdom and that the believers will go on to Heart Holiness.
