Well God didn't waste any time answering.
I went to a new church on Sunday and scheduled a meeting to talk to the Pastor on Monday (I try to schedule a meeting with every pastor I meet). Thirty minutes into the conversation I mentioned the Alpha course and about five minutes later he was telling me he wanted to start the course this Wednesday, just two days later!
I explained to him that there was work to be done beforehand and we needed to train the leaders prior to start the course. We agreed to hold off till next Thursday but we went ahead and started training the leaders tonight. It's kinda crazy just how quickly all of this has happened and despite my initial concerns, I really believe that this is God's will.
Please be praying for the Alianza Church, Los Rosales, its leaders and pastor, that God will use them and the Alpha course to change the lives of those who come. Also pray that new people who don't know Jesus will come and the church will be strengthened during this time.
I also met with the church board of a different church Tuesday that's really interested in the course. Please pray for them that God will show them whether the Alpha course is right for their church or not.
