The Children at ICCO

What is ICCO? Iglesia Cristiana Casa de Oración. That’s where I preached yesterday. It stands for Christian Church House of Prayer. It was a special service for the entire family. The highlight of the service was the baptism of two of the children. The children participated with songs and working as ushers. One of the boys, the young man who was baptized, helped me with the projector for my PowerPoint.

My message was about Jehoshaphat and God’s Battle. Read about it in 2 Chronicles 20. The formula I hignlighted was:

PROBLEM + PRAISE = VICTORY

What to do when you don’t know what to do? Do what the King Jehoshaphat did! Go to the Lord in prayer, then praise him. I guess I need to change the formula somewhat.

PROBLEM + PRAYER & PRAISE = VICTORY

Let me show you some pictures. The quality is not the best since I was taking the pictures from a distance and i only have a small pocket camera.

The children sang some songs and then the parents were invited to come stand with the children to pray with them. I really liked that gesture. These two children were baptized. As you see below, the parents came forward to pray for them. The pastor expressed a desire that the young man be the future pastor of the church and the girl be a missionary!

Whatever happens this week, let’s remember that we never have to stand wondering what to do. We go to the source for victory, we PRAY and PRAISE God. The Apostle Paul admonished us to give thanks in every circumstance. That is the key to live a victorious life. Prayer and praise brings victory.

I will praise God and be victorious!

My husband and daughter Eva-Marie have been promoted to Heaven. Carina is married to Thom Cole and they have given me four gourgeous grandchildren, even five (teen-age John). I will be writing about my life, past and present, blended with visions for the future. My deepest desire is to spread the “seed of love”–inspiration to serve God and our neighbors with love and compassion.
