Easter Sunday 2014

 Here in Mexico, we don't really celebrate Easter. It is considered a Catholic holiday. However, yesterday was a pretty special Sunday! The whole Garcia family came over and Tio Mario preached. He did an awesome job! The church was packed out and we had an incredible altar service.

This young man, Samuel, got the Holy Ghost!

Joni got the Holy Ghost in December, and got another goooood touch last night!

Several people came up and prayed and cried that have never been to the altar before.

As the altar service was ending we were singing and Abner, Valentine, Samuel joined up. We were singing a song some of you might recognize. "Llename, llename, Señor. Dame mas, mas de tu amor. Yo tengo sed solo de ti, llename, Señor." It says "Fill me, fill me, Lord. Give me more, more of your love. I'm thirsty only for You, fill me Lord." These three guys were belting it out!

After altar call... :))

After church, Samuel said he wanted to be baptized. We sat around visiting while the baptistry filled up then gathered around as he climbed in to the cooooold water :)

And down in the water he went!
Good things happened on Easter Sunday!

Thank you for sharing this encouraging report! As I was praying on Saturday, the Lord brought the church in Puebla to my mind, and I prayed for God's anointing on your services on Sunday and that someone would receive the Holy Ghost. Thank God for answered prayer! I love and appreciate the Wakefield family and am thankful for the work you're doing in Mexico!

Aww, this is so awesome, Beth! Love it! And I'm so glad that you posted the words to that song, because I was going to email and ask you for them anyhow. :)

Jen- Actually, I only posted the chorus, but the first part of the song says:

Como el ciervo busca por las aguas, Asi clama mi alma por Ti, Señor.
Dia y noche yo tengo sed de ti,
Y solo a ti buscare.
