Holy Ghost Rally at Chinadega


We’ve just returned to the hotel from Chinadega, where the YOM team participated in a Holy Ghost Rally. When we arrived, the local church surprised us all by having rented an outside location to hold service in. It was a large service with around 300 people in attendance. We had worship service and the local church youth group ministered with a drama. After that, a few of the YOMers testified: Justin Lee, Rachel Adams, and Rachel Niffen. The YOM Choir then sang 2 songs in Spanish. The Holy Ghost moved during the second song and prayer and worship ensued. The aftermath:  17 received the Holy Ghost for the first time (one of which was our own bus driver) and many received a great blessing. A side note – because the service was held in a rough part of town, the local church hired federal police to escort the YOM team in and out of the area.

After service, we enjoyed dinner at a restaurant called “Rosti Pollo”. It was a delicious meal of roasted chicken and other side dishes. We then hit the road once again, taking a 3 hour trip back to Managua to get some rest for the night. We have service tomorrow morning and evening. Thank you for your prayers and blog comments!
