Wow! God is great. The scripture All things work together for the good ...
Well here is a story for you.
We were in rough weather and the alternator shorted out. We were losing the ability to even run the engine and just made it into Bahia Tortugas.
We knew we were in God's hands from the begining and I was so glad I did not get ship wreaked.
When we arrived in the bay of Turtles we found favor with the people every where.
God sent us an intercessor on the beach and in twenty four hours we were being used of God.
The first night we ministered to the members of the church. Prayer and Chiropratic. There was a turn out of 25 if I remember correctly.
The next night we continued with an out reach the pastor had an order of bibles that just arrived and each memeber recieved one and those who recieved healing as well. The teams from the church ministered to the new believers.
The pastor asked us to do home visits after hours of healing services. We were empowered by God and we watched God take what we had and increase it to meet the needs of his people.
The Children are feed Monday through Friday through the Pastors wife's ministry called the House of Bread " Casa de Pan" of which I gave CD's of Children's music for the time of feeding and everyone was enjoying it.
I was invited to serve the Children and invited to lead children's service on Sunday.
It was fantastic. We had a drama reinactment of raising Lazereth from the dead. And I prayed for the children and told them they can raise the dead too. So pray, lay your hands on the sick and they will recover. The kids are on fire for Jesus.
We had another service in Lupita's house and they children came and prayed for those who were sick with us. And thay all early began the D-12 studies. It is such a blessing to share the good news of God's love and provision with others.
There were a few couples that needed deliverance and the pastors asked us to go to their homes to pray with them so they would not manifest infront of the others in church as some were very new in the faith and for respect of the couples. We gladly went with them and the Holy Spirit gave us insight and used the Pastors and intercessor in a mighty way.
We knew when the tears dried and the smiles filled their faces that God had set them free of emotional hurts.
The days that followed proved that God is so determinded to bless his people and give this great love to all who seeks it.
We were invited to come back to two other Islands and we will after our Spanish Classes.
We will up date this information this week with pictures.
We are now in La Paz. I have been invited to learn how to cook tamales and be apart of a women's group.
Much is happening.
So through the difficulties and near disasters God just does his work.
God so loved the world that he gave his only son that who ever believes in him will be SOZO. Healed Spirit, Soul, & Body
That we all had his peace, faith and Love.
The greatest is love.
Finally we are departing,
We are very excited, the shake down trip to the Islands went very well. So the count down has begun. We will be working as much as possible to get ready. Now we are shipping the last items to my Mom's for storage and finishing our paper work Monday through Wednesday.
Thursday is a day of rest and prayer before we leave on Friday.
We will be checking into Encinitas, Mexico and then straight to La Paz.
We will spend a week or two in emerssion classes for Spanish. Then to the School of Training in La Paz.
We are praying for good winds 15 - 20 knotts, following Seas and no sea sickness.
We will send out an e-mail on our arrival to Mexico.
Thank you for your support and prayers. I hope you follow us on this trip we will be posting pictures of all the people we meet and share their stories with you.
May God bless and keep you always,
Keep sreading the Love of Christ
We love you all.
We wanted to post a thank you to our Pastors and leaders. Larry and Jacque Reichardt. They have invested many years in training us and discipline us.
We are so thankful for their leadership and ability to press into God for the answers even when it looked hopeless for us they hoped in God.
Their compassion, long suffering,wisdom and grace have aided us in our growth in the Lord. Without this kind of mentoring we would not have stepped into our destiny.
Thank you, we love you so much,
Deborah & Micheal Gallagher
