Every tribe and tongue and nation . . .
Today Bruce and Nathan had the opportunity to preach at the church here in Santa Cruz, Bolivia. The church was just ending a month long emphasis on missions.
Bruce got to preach during the Sunday school hour. He spoke in Portuguese and also had an interpreter for the Spanish speakers in the crowd. He spoke on Matthew 9:36. He encouraged the church about praying for laborers for the harvest field.
Nathan got to give a 15 minute missions message during the worship service. He shared his testimony in Spanish and then Dan Collins (missionary to Bolivia) interpreted for him as he spoke from Revelation 5 and 7. He encouraged the church that our mission will be successful! There will be people in heaven, who have been bought by the blood of Jesus, from "every tribe, tongue, and nation." God will accomplish His plan of saving people from all the nations of the earth!
It was a pleasure to get a little taste of heaven over the last two days as people speaking several different languages worshipped our great Savior!
