Worship Without Borders

 In Community Development, Short-Term Volunteer, Volunteer Team

This month, I have experienced some of the most powerful worship I have ever witnessed. Our team has such a great gift of worship; we were able to share that gift countless times with many we ministered with- the people at the foundation, the people in the church congregation, and the people in the local community. We have led worship in both English and Spanish, but despite any limitations due to the language barrier, the people’s hearts were so on fire for the Lord that it was always obvious that the Holy Spirit was present . Two of the congregation’s favorite songs were “Cardenas Romper” and “Gracia Sublime”. Whenever we got to share those songs,  I watched as everyone in the room boasted in the incredible freedom that the Lord has given them through this amazing opportunity given to them due to the work of Ciudad Refugio.

Personally, I believe that worship is the most powerful way to connect with the Father; but it is also a powerful tool to reach out to community, and I was able to see that here this whole month. No matter who the people were, what they believed, whether they were singing, dancing, playing an instrument or simply praying, the Holy Spirit was moving in incredible ways during worship this month.

It was such an honor to connect with these people by worshipping with them in their native language and feeling God break chains and shed light and love in the dark places. It has been truly amazing.
