A Call for PRAYER

Asking for prayer:

The property we have lived on for 18 years that houses all of our community (which is 9 houses) is up for sale due to our landlords health. We have had many things spoken to us about this property and people who over the years have looked in to buying it and keeping it for ministry.

But at this time it is on the market for sale.

We thank you for prayers for His will and His miracles.

Community of Worshipers

Community of Worshipers started several years ago, springing from a heart that desired to worship with believers despite denominations. In 2010 we worshiped with different groups across San Diego county.
In the fall of 2013, we held a series of worship nights that we recorded. Each group worshipped with their original songs. Our vision is to share original music from worship groups in San Diego.

To hear the vision behind The Warehouse Gatherings click here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P7xBIpp8ty0&list=UUj7OVuYgObDkjut9fBBwpvA&feature=share&index=11

This album is a collection of original songs from worshipers in San Diego. Community of Worshipers held a series of acoustic nights of worship that were recorded live at Lower Warehouse Recording (located at City of Refuge’s warehouse) in downtown San Diego. Each night a different group of worshipers led, shared their songs and the inspiration for the songs. Each group is unique and has their own sound; some groups contain a full band, while others are just one acoustic guitar and cajon.

The heart of the album is to capture the essence of fellowship and corporate worship. All the songs were done live, in one take, with no over-dubs.
This collection contains two songs from each group.
This album was created entirely for free.

Community of Worshipers’ prayer is that every person who hears this album and sees the corresponding video testimonies of the worship leaders will be touched by the love of Jesus and by our Comforter, the Holy Spirit.

Keep checking back to our YouTube channel to see the live, in-studio nights of worship and the video testimonies of the stories behind the songs. Click on this link http://www.youtube.com/cowgatherings

A Wonderful Christmas Blessing 2013!

Thank you all!! We are so grateful for all of you who came and served the children and families this year! There is no way we could bless so many without working together. All the gifts and donations, the wrapping and face painting, the crafts and those who picked up trash and prayed for those in need. Those from Lancaster, Fallbrook, Bonita, San Diego and El Cajon…. The churches and businesses and families, it was great to work together!

Thank you!!!

“When you give to the poor, it is like lending to the Lord, and the Lord will pay you back.” Proverbs 19:17

Merry Christmas and Have a Blessed New Year!!!

Here’s just a few of the many pictures….

The Love of Jesus

On Sunday we went to Mexico to visit a church and bring the kids toys and clothes. We ran into some trouble crossing the border which delayed our arrival time by a few hours, but the people still waited for us at the church.

As soon as we got there we immediately started playing with the kids. At first it was hard because I do not speak Spanish, but the love of Jesus transcends all languages.

After we finished playing we went up behind the church to the pastor’s house, where you could look down the hill and see the houses. After seeing how little the people had it really made me thankful for everything I have. It encouraged me to see how these people still love God and are thankful for every little thing they have.

Instead Of Saying Thank You

In my time here I’ve learned many things while passing out food. While we are passing out food at schools I’ve noticed that some people complain about the quality/quantity of food that we are giving out. Some of the things we usually hear are “people are always cutting in line” or “you guys need to be more organized”  the more this happens the more it makes me realize how often as Christians we do the same thing to God. Instead of saying thank-you for all God gives us we complain about the things we don’t have. I know for me personally I get so caught up in what I don’t have and what I feel like God isn’t providing for me that I don’t give Him praise for all that He is doing in my life. We serve an amazing Savior who never leaves us or forsakes us and we should never forget that no matter what is going on in our life.

Relationship Not Duty

God has really been rocking my socks and blessing me a lot. I have been experiencing the Holy Spirit like never before. I experience Him most when I am in quiet prayer or communal worship or prayer. The best feeling in the world is God’s touch. I want to fully know through experience what it means to walk in the Spirit while going about various physical tasks.

This may sound weird but I think sometimes my mindset to help others actually hinders my ability to help. If I am focused on someone else and how I can best help them, I can only help them the best I can. But if I focus on Jesus and stay in the Spirit, I will most likely be acting like God wants me to act naturally. It’s about a relationship not duty anyway. Here’s to walking with the best friend in the universe.
