Praise & Prayer: Larissa is Improving!

We just received some wonderful news- Larissa is improving! For the first time since she was admitted, Larissa was able to stand alone and even shower by herself. Her cough has subsided and her fever only comes sporadically. We are all so grateful to hear she is on the road to recovery. We give all glory to the Father!

 “Now to Him who is able to do far more abundantly beyond all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us, to Him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations forever and ever. Amen.”  Ephesians 3:20-21

On behalf of the POI Boys Orphanage we would also ask that you pray for Mary, house-mother to the 7 boys currently in our care. She has recently been diagnosed with dengue fever, a infectious disease carried by the mosquitoes of Central America. The disease can vary on its severity so we are praying that it quickly runs its course. Please pray for Edgardo, her husband, who is caring for the boys alone, as well.

So we ask that you also pray for the leaders of POI, that their hearts would not be discouraged, but joyful, knowing that God is at work in this city.

And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.”  Romans 8:28-29

San Juan is growing!

34278_678336067141_5185809_nThe POI program at San Juan has grown tremendously, with 48 new children this year alone. However, we often fail to mention the incredible work that God is doing in the San Juan church.

The POI program at San Juan provides over 200 children with daily tutoring, nutrition, and medical care, all the while, the church is impacting the lives of these children and their families.

Out of the 21 new people attending the church, 11 are new believers and the 10 that have not yet accepted Christ are hungry to learn more.

Every week, two general services are held, one on Tuesday’s with an average of 50 attendees and one on Sunday’s with an average of 65 adults and 50 kids.

Hebrews 10:25 says, “Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another–and all the more as you see the Day approaching”

Pastor Yovani and the rest of the POI staff realize the importance of small group relationships and therefore hold five different discipleship groups throughout the week engaging 39 people.

The church at San Juan is committed to reaching the people where they are. Celebrations are regularly held for holidays such as father’s day, and soccer with the Guacerique church is a frequent activity.

They are also committed to teaching the people the practicality of their faith.  Intense evangelistic and discipleship teaching is held on the last Sunday of each month.
