This week we met with brothers and sisters of other communities of faith.
We participated in an ecumenical meeting celebrating the light and power of Easter (Via Lucis).

I want to express my thanks to our lawyers working so hard on the legal process to get title to our land under License 1722, with the multiple issues that have arisen out of this; and I extend my thanks to the whole neighborhood and other churches which support us.
Among various we formulate a prayer, as we were asked to, so that we all can pray in union to our God. I am glad that many see these dark moments as an opportunity to give a Christian witness of unity and justice.
May God protect and bless us all


Esta semana nos reunimos con hermanas y hermanos de otras comunidades de fe.

Participamos en un encuentro ecuménico celebrando la luz y el poder de la Pascua.

Agradezco a nuestras abogadas que trabajan en el proceso para titular nuestra tierra bajo la licencia 1722 con las múltiples complicaciones que han surgido en este proceso; damos gracias a toda la comunidad y a las demás iglesias que nos apoyan.

Entre varios formulamos una oración, como se nos pidió, para que JUNTOS recemos a nuestro Dios. Me alegro que muchos vean estos momentos oscuros como una oportunidad para dar un testimonio cristiano de unidad y por la justicia.

Que Dios nos proteja y bendiga a todos

Reverend Roland

Señor Jesús, nos acercamos a ti confiando en tu promesa de hallar paz en ti.

Es cierto, el mundo nos aprieta; pero tú has vencido al mundo.

Por eso, Señor, entregamos a ti nuestras vidas para que tu Espíritu nos limpie, fortifique y guíe a la verdad. Señor, que tu Espíritu Santo nos de sabiduría y dirija nuestro proceder.

Nos quieres y nos envías como tus testigos a este mundo, donde abundan potestades de las tinieblas.

Señor, pedimos por tu protección y que tu Espíritu Santo nos dé tanto la astucia de las serpientes como también la pureza de las palomas.

Señor, que tu justicia engrandezca nuestra nación, e impida que la maldad deshonre a nuestro pueblo.

Rezamos unidos para que nuestro testimonio en palabras y hechos glorifique a Dios Creador, el gran amante de la vida.



Lord Jesus, we come to you trusting in your promise to find peace in you. True, the world presses in on us; But you have overcome the world.

Therefore, Lord, we give you our lives so that your Spirit may cleanse us, fortify us and guide us to thetruth.

Lord, may your Holy Spirit give us wisdom and direct our actions.

You send us as your witnesses into this world, even with its abundant powers of darkness.

Lord, we pray for your protection.

You send us like sheep among wolves. So help us to be wise as serpents and innocent as doves. (Mt 10:16)

Lord, may your righteousness magnify our nation, and prevent evil disgrace to our people.

We pray that our witness in words and deeds will glorify God the Creator, the great lover of life.
