This past month alone Nate was able to assist in putting on four Pastor's Conferences in Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Guatemala, and Puerto Rico.
127 churches were represented among the 230 pastors and leaders!
The Praying Pelican Conferences are designed to help unite the local churches, equip them with tools to host mission trips, and encourage the pastors to continue in their calling. At each of the conferences these goals happened and we praise God for that!
Nate's primary role (besides creating resources and helping to set up these events) was to preach. Nate used the story of Moses fighting the Amalekites in Exodus 17 to illustrate how Moses needed partners in ministry to hold his arms up so that the battle could be won. Many times pastors (here and around the world) live out their calling in isolation. During the times of ministry we saw numerous pastors seeking the Lord in tears. We know that the Lord is our arm-lifter and it was a privilege to stand with our pastors in prayer.
