but you can’t make him drink. Fortunately, the Holy Spirit can. On Saturday night I had the privilege of leading three young men into a relationship with the Living Water.
We were hosting a young men’s leadership conference in conjunction with a team from Friendship Baptist Church in Minnesota. We had a group of guys from Belize City come in and join several of the young men from our village. We had a fantastic weekend. On Saturday night, we had a time of confession and forgiveness. The Spirit moved the speaker to ask if anyone was unsure of their salvation and wanted to take care of it that night. Three young men (two from our village) raised their hands. I was able to counsel these three young men and all three prayed and confessed a desire to repent of their sins and to follow after Christ.
This is the part where I do a happy dance (imagine the most awful white-man dancing you’ve ever seen.) Hallelujah! Three more rescued from the clutches of the enemy! I’ll be able to personally help disciple two of them that are from our village.
Please lift up Trevor, Leroy and Javier in prayer as their commitment will soon be tested by the enemy. Please pray for the other men who committed to stand strong in purity and for their convictions. Oh how we need men to rise up and lead in the Belizean church!
