Capil Marhatta: What a glorious day it was in the sensational South Region! Our very own 20 year old young prophet – Sean Valenzuela (a Campus Intern and ICCM student) preached his very first sermon simply titled, Your Relationship With God! The lesson brought many to tears. To close his message, Sean kneeled down and challenged us to beg for God’s mercy! Be praying for Sean as he is preparing to leave on the Sydney Mission Team in December!
God has given us in the South Region an incredible territory to harvest – the City of Long Beach! Long Beach is the second largest city within greater Los Angeles and by itself is the 36th largest city in the USA! Within two weeks of starting our Downtown Long Beach Singles Bible Talk, we met a young man name Khalid Davis! Khalid has gone through several painful challenges: his dad passing away at the age of 11, his mom recently having open heart surgery, and then even during the studies, Khalid obeyed the Scriptures’ call for purity by breaking-up with his girlfriend!
It has been an awe-inspiring time down here in Long Beach as we have seen God consistently add many souls to the Kingdom! And on a personal note, I am so honored to be selected to the ICCM and in time take the gospel back to my homeland of Nepal!
