Twenty-five men and women gathered at Maranatha Ministries on February 11 for a Corazón Ministries Cross-cultural Marriage workshop. Single, engaged, and married couples learned how to have a healthy marriage based on Biblical principles. The interactive style, sharing, and conversation encouraged reflection and laughter. One man in a cross-cultural marriage made an appointment with Mike for the following week. The man told Mike that after the marriage workshop, he recognized he was not the man God called him to be. Mike shared that God’s design for marriage was only possible through a relationship with Jesus. After Mike shared the hope of the Gospel, the man bowed his head and prayed to receive Christ as the Lord of his life and marriage.

The pastor who opened his church to host the workshop stayed for the day. He has invited Mike and I to come and present the cross-cultural marriage workshop in Spanish to his congregation. Another single woman who attended is also arranging a later time for us to share our Leadership Training with her bilingual church, fellowship group. After our recent trips to churches in Los Angles and Dallas, our plans to return for cross-cultural marriage workshops, training, and ministry to couples are underway.
