Thursday night was a packing meeting to pack the medicine and supplies for the clinic and vacation Bible school. The Lord’s Closet team has spent the last several months gathering supplies for the trip, sorting clothing and picking outfits for the 101 children in the six churches planted by Javier Gil and the other pastors in the Cali area and they assisted in packing. We are taking a total of twenty-one bags of clothing, medicine and supplies weighing over 1000 lbs.
SRC Colombia Missions Trip
July 23-30 2011
The people of Colombia need Jesus. Pastor Javier Gil and his wife Gloria have set out in faith to plant churches that share the gospel all throughout Cali, Colombia and have been members of the SRC church planting family since September 2007.
The main idea:
Spanish River kicked off the annual 2011 Church Planters Conference with special guest and Network member, Chan Kilgore. In his talk, “Gospel Message: From Transaction to Transformation,” Chan unpacks what the gospel is and how it should inform and transform every aspect of a church planter’s life. Chan presents useful diagrams, pastoral instruction, and practical insights to empower church planters to be biblically grounded and gospel driven in their marriage, sexuality, parenting, finances, and more.
