Rev. Carlos Sokoluk invited Dr. Sos and Barbara to minister at their three Sunday services. The ” Feliz Encuentro” church is known for their vision, leadership and good worship. On Sunday morning they baptized 25 people. The weather turned to downpours and hail. Yet the ministry continued. On Sunday afternoon and evening the three services were blessed of the Lord. The excitement to hear the word and to be blessed, opens the hearts to receive the touch of God and the healing the people believed for.
Last night Dr.Sos and Barbara traveled about 200 km to San Vicente for ministry. Saturday is not the usual service time, yet believers came to take in a special service. Dr Sos ministered to many with personal, family and spiritual needs. It was all worth it all. The church was encouraged and challenged to continue in the mandate of God for their city. Rev Ricardo Silva invited Dr. Sos for next year to conduct special services.
Dr Sos and Barbara traveled to Posadas, to teach another seminar for pastors and leaders. Every place we came, the expectations were great. Pastors from the Posadas area are more privileged in many ways since the city is the capital of Misiones. After the seminar the service for members of the local church commenced. The Lord moved powerfully. Many salvations were recorded and others were filled with the Hoy Spirit. Pastors prayed with many for healing. A blessed night in God’s presence.
Some 15 years ago, Dr Sos ministered in Posadas, Misiones, since then he has not been back to the province. He and Barbara were looking forward to the ministry, to meet different pastors and get to know their congregations. First day in Misiones, Dr Sos taught a seminar in the city of Alem. Some 50 years ago Barbara’s dad ministered here and we could see the fruit of his ministry. In the evening Dr. Sos ministered to the whole congregation and pastors. The church just celebrated their 50th Anniversary. Rev Carlos Silveira, is the lead pastor and also the District Superintendent of the Misiones District.
The next day we drove about 150 km to another day filled with a pastors seminar and evening service. As we arrived at the church many pastors eagerly waited to take in the seminar and learn something new from the scripture. Although it was very hot, they were very attentive. In the evening service the presence of the Lord was felt right from the beginning. The prayer for transformation of ministry for the pastor and special prayers for the needs and healing followed. It was another great night in the presence of the Lord. Barbara shared in every service of our ministry and what the Lord is doing around world.
Another sectional ministry took place in Capiovi, where pastors from different cities came to take part of Dr Sos’ teaching. In the afternoon, we experienced a huge thunderstorm, and we were not quite sure if many pastors would come. The seminar was well attended and the evening service filled with people who came expecting to see their prayers answered. The Lord touched many this night.
Monday night Dr. Sos ministered to the regional pastors and leaders in Escobar. After the Regional Director presented results of the elections Dr Sos came to minister the word of the Lord. His message was well received. The prayer for pastors and leaders extended well into the night. The meeting took place at Iglesia ”Buenas Nuevos, where Rev. Carlos Purat, and his staff are ministering.
Argentina is the last point of our ministry this year. Barbara and Dr Sos travel every year to conduct seminars, speak at the conferences and minister in the local churches. This year we began the ministry on one of the islands in delta area of Bs.As. The church can be only reached by boat. Rev.Urquiza is working hard to reach the people living on these islands. They use three boats to pick up people and also bring them back home from the services. Great work, with great rewards.
Sunday morning Dr. Sos ministered at Imanuel church, where Rev. Enrique Strohschein, President of the Union the Assemblies of God, is the lead pastor. A great church with ministry to many satellite churches and a visionary church planting new churches in many places in the country. The ministry concluded with a seminar for leaders and pastors. Development of leaders benefits not only the local assembly, but also the satellite churches. The the leaders and workers are equipped and sent out from this congregation to pastor or plant another church.
Sunday night Dr. Sos and Barbara traveled to minister at the church of the Good Shepherd. They have many church services during the week. Rev. Elida Dos Santos, also extends the ministry to the city through a Medical Clinic. They also operate a 24 hours Christian radio program, reaching people beyond borders of their city. An excellent altar call after Dr. Sos ministered resulted in empowerment of the believers receiving healing touch of the Lord.
City Revival Church is a long standing supporter of SOS Ministries international. Dr. Sos and Barbara return every year for a time of ministry, conducting seminars for leadership and preaching ministry. This time Dr. Sos was teaching two seminars: “Having an Attitude of Ownership of ministry,” and “Handling False teachings.” The whole weekend was blessed of the Lord. Many believers answered the call for prayer of rededication, healing and for a special touch of God. A weekend to remember.
Dr. Sos and Barbara travel back to Medan to continue teaching at the Bible School, pastors seminar and minister in several GKII churches. Rev. Dr G. Munthe and his staff are very busy running this wonderful ministry. Some 4000 cell leaders, several locations of ministry places, Bible school, and Victory Christian school, are in their responsibility and care. The weekend services were attended by thousands of people and in every service the Lord granted salvations, miracles and deliverances. Dr. Sos ministered in three services where he has seen over 100 hundred salvations and healings.
Teaching at the Bible School was quite rewarding. The students are very attentive and willing to learn. The children of Victory school put on an excellent program for Dr Sos sand Barbara. The pastors seminar was also one of the highlights.
