New Sprout

How long does it take a seed to germinate?

It all depends on a range of factors, some internal and external conditions and some controllable and uncontrollable elements.

The Christian School in Camiri has been all about planting and sprouting The Seed (Luke 8:11) since its foundation in 1956.

Carla Negrete has been our student since first grade and is a junior in high school this year. She has been a quiet respectful girl, has participated in the pantomime team which often presents the gospel message, but had not shown interest in spiritual things or so it seemed until last Tuesday, August 17 when in a casual conversation in the classroom she asked about the purpose of life to one of our Christian students, Josue Morales.

After school they continued the conversation as they walked to their homes, Andres Moron joined them and both answered her questions. She wanted that purpose, direction and commitment in life that she saw in these two young men and standing on a street corner, with tears in her eyes and a simple prayer, she asked Jesus to be Lord and Savior of her life. The Seed in her heart has finally sprouted.

  1. We rejoice with you Andres in hearing this good news! God is faithful! ~Reibings

  2. ¡Wow! ¡Qué testimonio! No todos los testimonios son los salidos de la escoria -humanamente hablando- El Señor a todo lo que se llama pecado, es la escoria de la cual Él nos quiere salvar. Tu alumna ha hecho una decisión que aún sin conocerla me regocijo con ella y contigo, por esta excelente decisión.
    Un saludo afectuoso para ella, please.

  3. ¡gozo! por la salvación de Carla, oraremos por ella y su familia.
    Dios continue ayudandoles en sembrar en la escuela 🙂

    te queremos,
