Quest takes off for Belize, Central America, in just 3 days! We'll arrive there Saturday afternoon in Belize City. From there we'll travel to the capital city of Belmopan - just over an hour inland. We'll settle in, then gather for a meal with the church community we are helping to plant/grow there. After dinner, we'll all gather - Americans and Belizeans - to worship together. I (John Kenney) will be preaching that night - along with the pastor of the Belizean church (German Gallardo). Our theme that night is "ONE." We're preaching from Ephesians 4:4-6 where Paul calls the fracturing church (cultural issues in the first century) to UNIFY and focus on what they hold in common - JESUS - instead of what could tear them apart (differences that just don't matter, really).
Pray for German Gallardo and I as we prepare to preach this message of UNITY the first night. We need God's Spirit to guide us and to overtake that worship space as we gather. Pray that we would truly UNITE AS ONE CHURCH in Belize.
