It truly is a remarkable moment, being here with David, Annie, & Al. We have been skyping for hundreds of hours over the past 2.5 years, and now God brings us to one spot for World Youth Day where we can really work well together for building up the Kingdom. Although I had Visa issues, and Annie missed her flight in Lima, we knew that God was in control. Trust is the name of the game when it comes to this type of work. It is not in our hands, but His whom guides and inspires us.


World Youth Day Rio 2013

Today’s video was quite exciting for many reasons. First, we made it to Rio for World Youth Day 2013. Second, after being in Brazil for less than 3 hours, the team was at the base of the giant Christ the Redeemer statue overlooking the city. The view at the top was remarkable, and the chapel at the base was even more impressive. For wherever the tabernacle resides, there is Christ. And Christ brings all to the world to love and serve His people, and that is what we hope to do here in Rio.

On top, we interviewed some pilgrims, took many pictures, and recorded the vlog you see above. Contributor - Seth James DeMoor
