As Christians, our mission is to make disciples of all nations. We’re blessed to live in an area where approximately 30% of our residents were born in another country; so in a very real sense, the nations are right here on our doorstep. This is something we should celebrate and an opportunity we should seize in order to show Christ’s love, pursue relationships and share the gospel.
To that end, we will be highlighting a different cultural group in our county every few months, so we can learn more about them and pray for our interactions with them.
This past Sunday, we highlighted the Salvadorans in our culture, many of whom attend our own church. We asked a member in our church, Oscar Pinto, to share a little about his culture:
After the service we passed out cards with simple prayer points to remind us all to pray for Salvadorans (more are available at the Welcome Center if you missed them). We can pray that:
- more would come to know Christ
- Salvadorans would experience freedom from fear through the gospel
- those seeking employment would find steady work to provide for their families
- Salvadorans would experience unity and overcome differences rooted in El Salvador’s civil war
