Tierra Linda Church

From Sara:

This week we are asking you to pray for the local church we will be visiting while in Colombia. It’s name is Tierra Linda, and we absolutely love this group of people! Tierra Linda is a smaller church that is very welcoming and friendly to visitors. They are doing great things in their community. One specific ministry is an outreach to a group of low-income families that live in a recycling community nearby. This ministry has gone on for the past 5 years or so, and slowly they are beginning to see results and changed lives in this community. Tierra Linda is also home to many North American missionaries that you will have the opportunity to meet on the trip. They church has faced some financial struggles in the past several years, as the neighborhood they are in is fighting to remove them from their building. Please pray for the church to continue to move forward in its ministry to those in poverty, for Pastor Santiago to be encouraged, and for the surrounding community to have a change of heart.
