Sunday, December 9, 2012, marked the inauguration of our 11th newly organized church since 2005: Miami Berea Iglesia del Nazareno at 1737 S.W. 1st St., Miami, FL, served by Pastor Cecelia Moran. The congregation had remained a church-type mission for many years. It is now a fully organized church.
This Hispanic church is typical of many of our Hispanic congregations in Southern Florida where as many as 38 nationalities are represented. The Berea church has Nicaraguans, Chileans, Hondurans, and Ecuadorians united by their language but more so, by the Spirit of God within them. The first class of Charter Members numbered 29. This small Kingdom lighthouse shines a beacon of light in a territory of Miami surrounded by witchcraft and satanism. But they are capturing trophies of grace.
The man in the grey shirt kneeling next to me is Luis Moldanado. He had been sentenced to 103 years in prison for drug trafficking. The Lord came to Luis in prison and he told The Lord that if he would get him out of prison, he would serve Him the rest of his days. A few days before his release, The Lord told Luis to postpone getting out because his enemies would be waiting to kill him. The authorities were incredulous, but honored his request. Upon his release, Luis moved into the apartments across the street. He came to church at Berea and was gloriously saved. Now, Luis writes and sings Christian songs in the Latin America music genre. May the stories of Luis and others we heard continue at Miami Berea where a beachhead for Christ and the Kingdom has been established. Please join me in prayer that the strongholds of Satan renting in the same strip mall will be torn down and the seed of the Gospel will grow in mighty power.
Big things happen with small beginnings. The young man kneeling in the front row on the right? God has called him to preach and out of this newly organized church, a new generation of pastors will be called to reach the ever-increasing Hispanic peoples in Miami and beyond. Congratulations to Pastor Cecelia Moran and her faithful husband, Francisco, as they lead forth against all odds.
but it is necessary to be very attentive what to rumple who it and whether there can be this person a swindler. after all and such happens. you don’t need which counterfeit production too much. simply it costs strongly cheaper.
