Chile GO Trip – November 2023
I’d like to pass on my sincere thanks for all of you who were praying for Geoff and Jane Mann, along with myself and Zeljko as we ventured to the South of Chile on a GO-Trip last month. The Lord answered our prayers and stood faithfully by us as we sought to serve Him. I had lost my passport in France a week before I was to leave for Chile, and against all the odds a replacement was delivered three days earlier than the norm, enabling me to go! All the travel arrangements worked out well, and on the journey back for Geoff, Jane and I, we had some worrying moments as our first flight was an hour late and that left us only twenty minutes to get across the airport and catch our main flight back to the UK. We caught it by the skin of our teeth with 2 minutes to spare and even more incredibly our luggage came through with us too!
Once in Chile the team gelled extremely well and there was a terrific sense of unity and joint purpose. The GO in GO-trip stands for Gospel Outreach and that was at the front and centre of all that we did. We spent the majority of our time visiting schools, going from classroom to classroom. Typically, we were given 5-10 minutes to explain the Chispa (Spark) magazine, which also means we are explaining the Gospel. The Spark magazine contains the Gospel of John. The very open culture in Chile along with the movement of the Holy Spirit meant that many school children made a decision for Christ! We spent some time in public parks, a bus shelter, and even went door to door in one town. Many long conversations were held and some came to Christ. Working with the local Church means that names and numbers are taken and those making a commitment are followed up. Thank you again for your prayers! We Praise God for all HE has done and are thrilled and excited to have been used for HIS purposes!
