Just like services in the United States, church services in the city of La Paz and El Alto have their own flavors, their own styles, their own worship music. This Sunday we attended the service at Vida Abundante, a Church of God church in the city of El Alto. Their music is quite contemporary Spanish most every Sunday, but occasionally they will sing to the Lord in Aymara with Aymara rhythms. We have had the pleasure to preach at Vida Abundante often and even play and sing with their worship band, but this past Sunday we were there to encourage them and enjoy the preaching of our good friend, Pastor Richard.
The little clip below is from their contemporary worship service where you can see some of the Aymara women worshipping. The young woman singing lead is Pastora Claudia. She was the lead Pastor of this congregation for more than two years during which time the church grew. Now, she supports Pastor Richard in every way she can.
Pastor Richard has been leading the congregation for the last three years. Below is short clip from his sermon entitled, Restored in Order to Restore and Renewed in Order to Renew.
We were honored by the Pastor to address the church before service. They always want to hear from us. After the service I was asked to bless and anoint three vehicles for the Lord. We always love to be with our friends at Vida Abundante.
We always love going to Vida Abundante where we are considered part of the family.
