Testimonies from our Hispanic Churches during COVID-19

[fa icon="calendar"] April 16, 2020 / by Edgar Castro

Greetings to the Central Pacific District family!

Today, I want to share with you that we have been praying for all the churches. Not only CMA churches but the churches from all denominations that are seeking more of the presence of God during these times we are living.

This pandemic has caused the temporary closure of the buildings where our CPD Hispanic churches congregate, along with other churches around the world. Nevertheless, the church of our God has never closed, nor will it close.

Why do I say this?

Well, I have never seen the moving of the Holy Spirit in the way it is moving in our Alliance family.

Members of our churches are praying like never before; we received reports of parents having daily devotionals with their children for the first time.

Other pastors informed us that the members of their churches are more united than ever. They have been helping each other. For instance, church members who still have a job are buying food for those who have lost their jobs.

Since face masks are so challenging to get, Casa de Dios made about 300 face masks for all its church members. For the Glory of God, no cases of COVID-19 has been reported among members of our Hispanic Churches.

I want to share a testimony of what God is doing through your faithful support.

A few days ago, I received a call from Liusbel, the president of the Alliance in Cuba. It broke my heart when he told me that the monthly ratio of basic goods provided by the government had been cut to half, and if it was difficult before, how much more now with the limitation of food and essentials.

When I heard the problem, I prayed and cried out to God. The next day, I called a friend in Sacramento and he told me, "I know a website where we can buy basic goods in Cuba."

I knew it was the answer to my prayer; I immediately asked him for the information, and we were able to buy essential goods for our brethren in Cuba, such as rice, beans, sugar, water, and soap.

Liusbel sent an email to me when he first received the news about the food.

Dear friend,

 I write these lines with tears in my eyes for everything you do. Today, I received a notification from the store saying that in a few days, they will call me again, and will mail me the food and essentials. Today, they sent me the list of the primary goods you sent me. I do not know how my family and I can thank you for all you do for us. Receive a hug and greetings from us. We love you, and we will continue to pray for you. Thank you, brethren, of the CPD.

 

I want to thank the entire CPD family from the bottom of my heart that despite the hard times, you all have believed in our God. Thank you for continuing to support the District.

In His name,
Edgar Castro
