Higher than the mountains, deeper than the sea...

With this group of children in the Llanos, I could feel the Holy Spirit moving through them and through the teachers gathered from throughout the region to lead together. The children are singing "Higher than the mountains....".

Mauricio Chala, National Coordinator of the Young-Youth Group

I chose this photo of me leading at a young-youth (age 13-16) retreat. The Spirit of God moves and manifests itself in a variety of ways. As unique as the occurrences and adventures are for these young people and the versatility in which they experience and know God; I feel God closest in humanity, in the laughter and in the words of those who live without prejudice... I feel the Holy Spirit accompany us in so many different ways ...

Zulma Ojeda, National Coordinator for Leadership Formation

Through the sharing of experiences and knowledge with the different programs of the Education Ministry of IELCO, the Holy Spirit strengthens our faith. As we study Lutheran identity through the model of Popular Education, we share and grow in our knowledge, build teamwork, and give more structure to the Education Ministry - we see the fruits of the work the Holy Spirit is doing through this ministry.

Religion Books, by Katie

"Walking in the light of God" is the name of the new religion books that are being distributed in the Lutheran Schools this year. The Holy Spirit moved through every part of the process of the preparing, writing, designing, and printing of these books. I am excited to see the ways the Holy Spirit continues to move as the teachers teach the new material.
