Worship Without Borders!

On July 23rd, delegates from Colombia, Ecuador, Peru and Venezuela gathered around video monitors as they participated in the recent Global NYI Convention. It was the first time in the history of the Church of the Nazarene in which NYI delegates joined the convention without traveling to the United States as it simultaneously broadcast in 8 cities around the world, including Quito.

"Everything went really well for it to be the first time for this kind of event. The good communication connection brought harmony and we were well treated," said Carla Aleman of Venezuela.

Arena Sanchez of Peru declared, "This was an unforgettable experience that marked my life and my walk in youth ministry."

Anderson Godoy of Colombia said that the opportunity to worship our God without the limits of borders was an inexplicable blessing. To see our Filipino brothers and sisters lift their hands in adoration at 4:00 a.m. while our fellow believers in Africa, Germany and other places around the globe united in song was simply incredible.

The Church of the Nazarene continues to be committed to building and unifying the global church through technological advancements. The participants praise God for this kind of opportunity.
