January – February 2021
No church for six months and the uncertainties of the pandemic for almost a year had some of our ladies very discouraged and ready to quit. We sat down and worked through everything. By the end of the meeting everyone was laughing and hugging each other. The next week one of them entered church smiling from ear to ear. She had a lost relative with her. Before the service was over, she had trusted Christ. Sometimes encouraging the saints bears fruit we don’t expect!
I remember when William and his wife showed up at church. They both enrolled in our institute shortly after. His wife graduated last year and we had the privilege of seeing him graduate this year. They are a wonderful couple with lots of potential. They have recently started a home Bible study with a desire to see their neighbors come to know Christ. He will also start teaching in our institute this year. Alone we can’t reach everyone, but if we train others, we can do more.
We recently started a new soul winning day during the week. It has proven to be of the Lord as several have gotten saved recently. Both Wilmar and Guillermo on different occasions told me the same thing after accepting Jesus. They said, “Others come and preach religion, but I never paid them much attention. But when you spoke to me today, it was different.” Praise God they paid attention to the Gospel!
Almost two years ago we took a big step of faith. We left our old building to relocate to a more central part of the city. It has proven to be a success. We have our old building for sale to help towards the purchase of the new. But, when sold, the sale will only cover about a third of the price. Would you pray about helping us complete this process?
