HDS home visit with a family

Home Visitation

Our regular fellowship held in HDS Function Hall has now been expanded and can comfortably fit everyone in. In our program we are intentionally training our people with a disability to get involved in the program by opening and closing prayer, sharing a testimony, and leading worship. It is so good to see them growing in confidence in the abilities and gifting God has given them.

Rodelio Gutierrez 35 years old, has used crutches since an infant. He is a man of courage, a man that never gave up in his dream to finish his studies and to have a better a life. In his studies he encounters many difficulties, his family were not supportive of him. Going to school was quite hard because he used his hand to operate the tri bike and has financial incapability especially when the pandemic burst out but despite of those difficulties, he was determined to reach his dream. He said to himself “I am the son of God, and many people encourage me and trusted me that I can do it”.

Rodelio’s Graduation

At last, in May 2023, he graduated in grade 12 and now he is enrolled in college to pursue his dream to finish the Information Technology course and become successful to this field. He wants to help his family and be an inspiration to the people with disabilities that if you have faith and trust to God he will make a way, “For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength” (Philippians 4:13). Jesus will give us courage and strength to make it happen. Rodelio is so grateful for his sponsors for their faithful and unwavering support over many years.

God promises you an overflowing life, not an overwhelmed life.

Jesus said, “I have come in order that you might have life—life in all its fullness” (John 10:10 GNT).

God is our true source of energy and power. If we try to go through life on our own power, we’re going to be overwhelmed. But if we’re connected to him, we’ll have all the power we need. Or, as the Bible says, “Your joy will overflow!” (John 15:11 NLT)
