Crowning the Year 2015: For the Chief Musician. A song. A Psalm.
You crown the year with your bounty. Your carts overflow with abundance. The wilderness grasslands overflow. The hills are clothed with gladness. The pastures are covered with flocks. The valleys also are clothed with grain. They shout for joy! They also sing.
Santos, son of CHE Trainer Marcos Gonzales had grown up in church but had not wholly committed his life to serving the Lord. He was trained with TOT1 last September. It was during the training that the Holy Spirit spoke to him calling Santos to commit his life to Jesus and serve in His Kingdom through Community Health Evangelism. Then he asked to be baptized. They went to Lake Atitlan to have a service and go down to the waters for a public testimony. 36 were baptized, Santos included, plus more local CHE fruit.
In the same way like Santos, more and much fruit is been presented humbly to the Lord Jesus through Global CHE Enterprises. But the local church as result of the CHE teachings have mobilized the community and all, believers and non believers put their hands together and accomplished a clean up crusade even making the illegal dump disappear.
Wholistic transformation and development is a long and ongoing process but the community of Chipotrer keeps in it. CHE Trainers Marcos Gonzales and Jose Hernandez were originally trained there as volunteer CHEs in the late 1980s.
