San Pedro Town Bible Parade
On Sunday, November 20, 2011 San Pedro residents witness history in the making as 8 churches, their pastors and congregation along with Lighthouse Christian Radio took to the street with floats, banners, balloons, celebrating the Bible and proclaiming God's love for the people of San Pedro Town. In spite of the light rain, which produced a beautiful rainbow above the parade, an estimated one thousand people marched down one of the main streets with several well decorated floats and placards with Scripture verses on them in Spanish. The parade ended at the Old Football Field where several churches provided a short program; skits, flag presentation of the Central America countries and praise and worship. The other pastors and I never thought of such an outcome while praying and planning this event several months ago and were greatly encouraged by the stand that many believers made before their neighbors, families and friends who lined the streets to observe this historical event. Many Bibles, Christian literature and gospel tracts where passed out as jubilant songs of praise from Lighthouse Christian Radio were amplified and several churches had live worship bands on floats in the parade along with singing congregants marching through the streets.
