Jason Rogers: La Iglesia En Tabacundo

Tabacundo ChurchSunday morning – As I sat today in worship with the Iglesia En Tabacundo, I was again reminded how wonderful it is to be a part of the body of Christ. Here we are thousands of miles from home, yet right at home with this beautiful part of the body of Christ.   

Being so far from home, we have found it sometimes hard to communicate, sometimes hard to understand what is going on. However, it is easy to see that we are loved by the people who were here in church with us today.  And it is easy to see Jesus working here in Tabacundo.  We have been embraced by the people here.  

I may not have understood the message brought to the church today but I did understand the smiles, and hugs that I received from the church kids today. I may not have understood all the words in the songs sung today, but I did understand the voices of the people around me that were lifted in praise and worship to our God, and I came to understand today during church- God doesn’t need me to understand it all.  Even without full understanding, I am invited into His presence to worship and be blessed!  God truly blessed us today as we worshiped together.
