Long term impact in individuals, families & communities

Master Trainer Pastor Emilio Urbina (Trained first 1990) and his new CHE Disciples
in Nicaragua.

Mr. José Ordeñana began putting his faith in Christ during a visit by the Training Team to his home in his village San Marcos. José now our brother in Christ, told us how he had have so much of a problem with alcohol and smoking tobacco. These two vices he used to think about been impossible to stop. José is 46 years old and diagnosed as Diabetic patient. When the CHE Team visited Jose his health had deteriorated. Pastor Emilio Urbina CHE Trainer prayed for Jose and led him to place his trust and faith in Jesus which Jose did and gave his life to the Lord. As we visit Jose and his family now in Christ he can give testimony about how he feels now very blessed and whole. He also shares how his health has improved to make him feel so joyful and grateful to God. As a Community CHE Committee member undoubtedly the word of God was breaking through in his life as we were training him with CHE lessons with the committee. Jose is married to our sister Sara del Carmen Hernández who had become a church member in our congregation. They have three grown up children who do sales as their work. Let us pray for the spiritual growth of this family!

Summer 2019

This 2019 summer has gone faster than any previous year for GCE. Last April and May both Hugos (Sr. and Jr) were able to represent GCE Mesoamerica Region at the IWMC in Lenexa, Kansas. The GCN Representative Council Meetings went very blessed and Dr. Hugo was reappointed for another term as Vice/Chairman to the GCN Representative Council.

…during the GCN Meetings…..
…then Dr. Hugo invited by Medical Ambassadors Int attended their International Council Meeting at Mission Springs California. At a special moment among the MAI fellow servants, Dr. Hugo was humbled to receive this,……(below)
…then MAI sent Hugo along the MAI Regional Coordinators to the University of the Nations YWAM in Kona for an intensive training on Community Appropriate Technology which will be very fruitful for all of Mesoamerica CHE communities. What a privilege for GCE to be amongst MAI partners!

Dr Tom & Diane Scheiffer came with their Second in the year Veterinary Team and treated over 5,000 animals at the CHE villages on the Cuchumatanes Mountains last June. The Verbal witness shared surely enriched the local CHEs testimony.

In June the mission team from First Baptist Church of Pine AZ served alongside the CHE teams at the Village of El Suj on the Cuchumatanes Mountains. All patients who allowed our CHEs to pray with them left the clinic more wholistically treated, not only their physical problem as usual expectation.
The Rich & Amy Crislip family were very instrumental about encouraging the local CHEs at Chirramos joining them on their construction of a new classroom project.(above)
Last month GCE/ASODECS were very encouraged by the visit of Pastor Karl Mueller GCE Vice-Chairman and Dr. Ravi Jayakaran CEO of Medical Ambassadors Int.
We praise God for Ravi taught us the versatile use of his “10 Seeds Assessment Technique”. It can be applied at all levels from the villagers level to us “leaders/trainers/facilitators”!
We are very grateful for the enrichment that Dr. Ravi has brought to our thriving efforts allowing us to see long term impact we had not even seen ourselves. Pray with us/GCE that MAI & GCE will continue to grow in partnership in this part of God’s Kingdom!
During our clinic at the CHE Village of Arenales we realized it was God’s timing that we were there or this child could have lost his sight if he would continue without treatment for a serious eye infection! Praises to God for our partnership of Focus Living Ministries & Global CHE Enterprises/ASODECS for 20 years already.
People come to our clinics with very high expectations about their physical needs for health but little or no interest on their spiritual being. But many of them go back to their homes with the knowledge, seed, they might not had before, that Jesus Christ is the Healer for wholistic health and eternal life!
Just a week ago, the mission team from Pure Heart Church Peoria, AZ went to join the GCE El Salvador team. Teaching about the Armor of God to the students of the public school kept the children very attentive and busy.
This student publicly professed to ask Jesus into his life! Join us in praises to God!
The leaders of the Social Action Ministry of the Church of God began to be trained with TOT1 (2 and 1/2 days) to complete the other half in August. Pray for our partnership COG/GCE to bear much fruit in his kingdom.

The Million Village Challenge Consultation for Mesoamerica will take place Aug 15 through 19 at our CHE Training Center in San Felipe Retalhuleu, Guatemala. 30 CHE Champions local Mesoamericans plus about 16 consultants from the Global CHE Network GCN, Campus Crusade CRU and several observers from a handful other ministries will be with us for the consultation. So, your prayers interceding for us all are been very necessary!

Always praising God and grateful to each one of our supporters, prayer intercessors, co-laborers and friends.

Hugo & Miriam
