Omar and Maryeri Lozada on the Left with new believers

A year ago, just around the time when COVID began to spread around the world, it was our privilege to be present during the formation of a new assembly in a remote area three hours from the city of Barquisimeto, where we live called "Cauderales."

This past March, one year later, the celebration of the anniversary in the assembly of "Cauderales" in Venezuela took place. It was a time that could be described as from heaven lived on earth. Moments of very happy fellowship and communion were experienced. Our Lord's presence and the visits by supporting brethren were enjoyed. One of our full-time workers, Samuel Rojas, visited us with his wife, Nora de Rojas. What could be described as a weekend mini-conference were preceded by a week of Bible studies with the local brethren. I was able to support them with the topic of I Timothy 2:7-26


The first anniversary of the assembly

On Saturday, March 6 at 10 in the morning, a Bible study was held with the believers. There was very good attendance despite the rain that occurred. Meanwhile, our dear sisters worked in the kitchen preparing food to serve lunch on the premises at the end of the Bible study.

Then there was a break until five in the afternoon. When we had a prayer and thanksgiving time, our brother Samuel Rojas ministered the Word using a graphic chart of the Tabernacle. Following the ministry for the Lord's people, the Gospel preaching followed, where brother Samuel also took part along with two other visiting brethren.

The day ended with the baptism of a dear sister named Marisol Bracho; I was given the responsibility and privilege of baptizing Brother Samuel Rojas ministered the Word that night. After finishing this service, food was served for dinner (102 servings for 102 people, including their respective juices). We detail this because we enjoy seeing Our Lord's provision in such difficult times and shortages here in Venezuela.

On Sunday, March 7, at 7:30 there was a devotional study. Then breakfast was served. At 10 a.m., the Lord's Supper took place, followed by the ministry of God's Word. After lunch, the people left to return home. Food were distributed for them to take with them. Great joy and fellowship were experienced because they understood the words as in Nehemiah 8:12.
