TRUJILLO ALTO, Puerto Rico
On Friday, September 25, the colleagues participated in two evening events. The group separated into two teams with one team attending the Universidad Teologica del Caribe’s first “Free Night” Event, and the other team ministering at the Congreso de Jovenes in Trujillo Alto, PR.
Free Night is a time allotted for young Christians to create, be, and fellowship in an outdoors venue, on the last Friday of every month at the Universidad Teológica del Caribe (UTC). The team was invited by Coordinator, Anna Cepero to enjoy the activities of the evening on what would be the first of many more, Free Night events. Many creatives and local artists provided entertainment, while inspiring the guests, which included students, neighbors, and friends of the UTC. There were several vendors as well providing typical delicacies from the island, but the best part by far was the fellowship.
While part of the team enjoyed the activities at Free Night, the rest of the team accompanied Director Brian Schlottmann to the Todo es Possible Church in Trujillo alto, Puerto Rico, where he had been invited to speak at a youth congress of regional youth groups just a few blocks from the UTC campus. The theme for the service was “Simple”, and the focus was on keeping the gospel message simple rather than complicating it with added legalistic rules. The team received a warm welcome, as they served through testimonies and a Kingdom centered sermon. The team also ministered during the altar call, and the atmosphere was truly charged with conviction, and a strong anointing.
Both teams enjoyed their assignments for the evening, and came back with stories to share, and they made new connections with the locals, as they shared the love of Christ by simply being and doing.
