Given the social restrictions for the coronavirus, we had to temporarily cancel our church meetings a couple of weeks ago. It was an extremely difficult decision. On the one hand, my mind told me it was the right decision since the health of the whole Church is at risk. But on the other hand, my heart was telling me that church can’t be canceled. I still remember my struggle when writing the message to the Church. We ended up canceled and I believe it was the right decision.

Two weeks later Laura told me: “We should have an online meeting.” What a novel idea, I don’t know why I haven’t thought of it, being that I am a Software Engineer and that I have had daily virtual meetings with my co-workers in the United States for almost a year. (The moral of the story: The important thing is not what you know, nor that you are very good at it. The important thing is that you take action and do it!) So yesterday we did our first virtual meeting.

Thanks to the virtual setting, we were able to include other believers from Guanajuato and Guadalajara that otherwise wouldn’t be able to attend. Everyone was very happy to be able to pray, study the Bible and have fellowship in the midst of this social isolation. It truly felt like a glass of water in the desert Thank God for technology!

Note: Video is in Spanish, but you can watch a couple of minutes just to get an idea of how a virtual meeting flows.
