Tony&Rosse Update *October-November*

This year is almost over, time flies!!!!  .. it is incredible few months ago we ‘re sharing in our personal site … telling  you all our experiences and blessings of last year … And now one month to finish this year …  How crazy it is…!!!  God has definitely been faithful, his work continues..  his Kingdom is being established and continuing on Earth as it is in heaven. We have no words to describe that although times are tough and this continuous acceleration of this world …. we have a great hope in Him, that He provides  for us the person of the Holy Spirit in our lives, the best and highest quality guarantee / assurance in  life. He is the one  who lead us  to walk in Freedom,  in complete obedience and his truth.

October&November in Review!!!!

 B.C.C ( BIBLE SCHOOL) Week #10!! 

PicMonkey CollageThe bible school has been a great time of revelation and study of God’s word. A challenging time, really busy and tired!!  But  is certainly very rewarding in my personal relationship with Jesus.

These last few weeks we have studied the books of Jeremiah, Revelation, John, Hebrews and others. Personally (Tony) the week  of study  the book of Revelation,  has definitely been one of my favorites, as my perspective of thinking in this book, in the context of the future for today.

God spoke to me a lot , through this book as He is interested in giving us the revelation of this book “today”.

One of the highlights of the last few weeks was also the week that we had to teach, preach and give Bible studies all in one week.   After that we went to Turrialba for a bible reading weekend, in a beautiful place outside the city –  Whole weekend reading the bible.  Was Fun time, not only reading but of fellowship 🙂

We feel grateful for our classmates, we enjoy time not only going deeper into the word, but growing together in our relationship with God.  We have the blessing of having a BBQ in our home and just hang out as friends!

Intercession Times

During our time of intercession as a school, God led us to pray for outreach. God has confirmed for the first time for this school ( after 7 years )  to send an outreach team to Liberia, Guanacaste. We are excited about this time, with high expectations of what we feel will be “preparing the ground” to what God is doing in YWAM San Jose  and in our lives 🙂  A team of 6 of us , will be two months in Liberia with the heart of imparting everything received in  the bible school – Work with local churches, developing bible seminars, work with youth in Liberia and around. When  the school ends  we will be packing up our house and moving to Liberia, super excited after eight years …. finally we will  returne home!!

 We want to ask you to Join our prayer team, december would be a month of transition in the middle of moving our house,  the last two weeks of school, projects and final exams. Rosse also will be transitioning her responsibilities as Personnel coordinator  in our base.
Impacto Liberia, activity that will take place the first week of January, where we are still preparing meetings,planning ..  much work to do.  We do really need prayers, as well as spending the holidays with our families and friends!!!  more than thankful to God for all He has done in us and what’s He is doing …. but super excited for what He will do starting the 2015.

We will be sharing more… as we travel to Liberia  🙂 🙂  More to come!!

Impacto Costa Rica 2015 !! Iniciando en Liberia!!

Impacto Costa Rica (Liberia) seeks to transform all elements of the city of Liberia with the Light and Love of Jesus Christ. God is at work in that city reconciling people to our Heavenly Father through the work of Jesus Christ, His Holy Spirit and the faithful work of His saints. Our work is to immerse the city of Liberia in the Light and Love of Jesus Christ during a week of intense and purposeful ministry, involving over 10 local churches in Liberia, over 10 local churches in the US, more than 100 missionaries from the US and 200 missionaries from Costa Rica, several Kingdom ministries including YWAM, many sports coaches and players, business owners and pastors. God is truly assembling a major force for His Kingdom!

1IMPACTOLogoImpacto Costa Rica (Liberia) began with a burden to reconcile the fatherless to our Heavenly Father. This burden led to a significant mission in January 2014 in which over 600 bibles were personally distributed, over 75 children were exposed to the Love of Jesus through baseball and other activities. Evening worship/Gospel services resulted in many salvations and rededications. God gave us favor with local government authorities and church pastors, leading to a unified and productive effort.

God is opening doors for us to connect and partner with amazing friends .

Vital Seed Ministries International  aims to advance the Kingdom of God through highfaith, high-impact, relational efforts involving local churches, businesses and ministries. Vital Seeds’ goal is to effectively synergize and complement both the Church and Business worlds through its thorough understanding of each and its connection with established relational networks.

⇒ Unify and strengthen the local church and encourage them to engage in local missions 

⇒ Door-to-door evangelism and bible distribution –

⇒ Reach the children through vacation bible school –

⇒ Teach the youth the love of Christ through baseball, basketball, soccer and skateboarding camps

( one of our good friends of skate ministry Tim Byrne will join us!!! check it out : http://www.timbyrne.org 

⇒  City-wide worship, praise and Gospel service nightly in the municipal gym –

⇒  Pastors Conference  – Kingdom Business Conference  – City-wide youth conference.

“Stop and consider the wonderful miracles of God” Job 37:14!
!These last months we have thought about this verse in job. Really is not complicated!! Right?? To stop and remember… all the things that God has done in you and through you !! all that He has healed, provided, restored, prepared …. for you!!!! Over and Over again we choose to run into his arms, We choose to obey him… and walk in his will not ours.. is such hard but rewarding LIFE-STYLE!!! We can say He is good !! In the midst of the challenges and adversities from the every day … He is good !! He has promised to always be there !!
 
 

“… the wonderful miracles of God…”

Luis Dodero ( Rosse’s Brother) , married in California, was one of the moments where our heart leaps with gratitude to God, to see the hand of God working in our lives. For us it is very important our families are our greatest and most valuable support. It was a beautiful moment for them as a couple,  they celebrate with good friends and family. God keeps His Word !!

10493046_10152989567111679_2289022396174858925_o

For I know!!  the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord,

thoughts of peace and not of evil,

to give you a future and a hope (Jeremiah 29:11)

In spite of what the daily day bring to our lives …

Or the different stages that we face … in life !! we recognize that God and only He can help us through each of these seasons..

 In spite of the circumstances  … God promises us that He has good thoughts of peace and hope.

 Tony & Rosse these last two months have faced different stages and  circumstances … but one thing that we have embraced is this promise that our father has better things for his  children …! There is no better place that in his  hands,

….but sometimes we do not understand ….BUT!!  He knows better than us! 🙂

“Walking backwards into the Future….”

This last weekend We had the opportunity to travel to panama, for the  celebration of 20th anniversary of YWAM Panama. Along with our  Ywam director, Giacomo Coghi and two of his children, began our trip on Thursday night with a 7 hour trip on the road, spend the night at the border of Panama, and crossed early on Friday, we finally got to the new YWAM chiriqui property, about 2 hours from the border. A  beautiful place in the mountains of Boquete, we got ready to listen and celebrate the many great things God is doing ​​. As expected this celebration was full of diverse nations and cultures, one of the things that highlighted in this celebration,

It was to see the presence of so many different indigenous ethnic groups  gathered, praising the Lord  in the same place . Many of them are parts of  discipleship schools, leadership training  for the purpose of returning to their tribes and extend the kingdom of God among their own
people….

Listening to the story of these heroes of faith, who 20 years ago took the challenge, listened to God and obeyed … without thinking about the implications 20 years later, Richard & Debbi Tracy, who gave everything, for the service of God in Panama. Today their childrens still  are serving the lord, and with them the next generation. Seeing at the multiplication in the work of discipleship, seeing how many  Indigenous have known Jesus, and  walked into a destiny with purpose, redemption and hope … and to see how that legacy that this couple has sown  , listening to the many testimonies…. and stories on how they start…..  made ​​Tony & I  feel really encouraged to know that the work we’re doing is not in  vain !!! that it is worth it… it is about PEOPLE FINDING GOD!!! It is about  bringing God’s kingdom… in any time… is to be a example of his Love. and his Principles.. in the daily basics… … It is about ” giving up” Your PLANS, and trusting God for his better ways… and how HE IS the one who invite us to be part and rejoice in his perfect will..

Out of every tribe and tongue and people and nation, And have made us kings and priests to our God;
And we shall reign on the earth.”
 Then I looked, and I heard the voice of many angels around the throne, the living creatures, and the elders; and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands,  saying with a loud voice:

“Worthy is the Lamb who was slain
To receive power and riches and wisdom,
And strength and honor and glory and blessing!”

A story ….

Rafael is one of the mens who have challenged me  the most  … a man who does not seek to be recognized … who loves God, and is fighting for his people .. to the presence of God and be free from generational culture and beliefs. Rafael is a pastor, he met YWAM, through the work of YWAM panama, did his DTS, and back to make known God in the midst of mountains, places very far apart for God’s sake… Now  is one the Brave people in God’s hands, one those who see the promise land.. and is willing do to everything to lead his people to his promise land.

…. Now Rafael has helping to plant 12 indigenous churches in differents communities…  walking distance …4 – 5 hours everytime in the jungle of Panama.. . He so humble but soooooo fill of God Joy and love…. to see the love of God moving trought the mountains of Panama. He inspire us A lot!.. Hearing his testimonies, his cry for his own people…  asking  us to pray for him as he continues doing God’s work, without any help, financial,  with his family… I just have not words…

I Invite you to remeber Rafael, and all those that we haven’t met.. but their are up there somewhere in the jungle of Panama.. sharing the truth of God … to those who haven’t heard….

A great Time of fellowship !!

wordpressGioela&luca our Ywam directos Kids,Praying for the futures leader fo the Nogbe People group, we had a special evening “sushi Night” 

In 2o Years from now….. where I’ll be, or what  I will be doing .. ??

“Walking backwards into the future” 

Maori culture of New Zealand phrase

This time in Panama,  hearing about Rafael’s journey …  was a time  of great revelation and impartation.

…. And this question was released……. in 20 years … where do  you see  yourself… your dreams that God has put in you ..

.. but when you return back to the present … those plans or dreams just disappear….

What are those changes, adjustments and decisions we make in our present in order for those dreams of God in your life be fullfil from today  in 20 years…

Wow … really for us … that expression weighs much more commitment, dedication, sacrifice, faith and increased openness to grow 100% in servant leadership…  We had Just Started!!!!! 🙂

Today we want to encourage and invite you to walk backwards to the future … … trusting God who holds our lives in his hands .. who orders the universe … and the world … who cares for us .. and his passion until   the great Commission is completed …. Our times are in his hands …. to wait 20 years … and finally say ok God! Now yes ! here I’m send me ! Returned today …. to your present and start making the right changes … to  complete the mission that God has placed in your life … in your heart … Come back to the today! and resurrect those dreams …. 🙂

Much Love!!! Tony&Rosse!!!

Pura Vida!!!!
