First, I want to say thank you to each of you who sent us a Christmas offering. We are so undeserving of your sacrificial giving. We pray that the Lord will bless you for your generosity toward us.
December was a good month for us at Iglesia Bautista Libertad and Redentor. We continue to see people saved and baptized at Libertad. To the right you can see a photo of four people that were baptized in December.
Things are advancing and progressing at Redentor. Although no one has made a profession of faith yet, we have had visitors for each service. We also had a Christmas cantata at Redentor with Erica, Morgan, and Meredith. This went very well. There has been a lot of seed planted and we are starting other outreach methods to share the gospel in the community and invite people to church. Please pray with us for the Lord to give us an increase from these efforts. I have to remind myself we have only been there for two months.
I want to close with an update on the Bible College project. To the right, you can see a photo with some of 2016’s graduates. In December I completed my first semester teaching in the Bible College. The Bible College is a great tool that allows us to work together to train men and women for the ministry more throughly and in a shorter time.
We are out of space in the current building we are using. We are looking to purchase property more centrally located and closer to public transportation. The benefit of a location like this will allow more people to be involved in the Bible College. However, a location like this comes with a larger price tag, but we believe it is worth it to have the opportunity to train more men and women for the ministry.
Our current need, to purchase property in the area we are looking, is $250,000. The Lord has provided $9,000 thus far. If you would like to give to this project. You can send your gift to:
PO Box 519
Braselton, GA 30517
(Please designate any gift for the Bible College land purchase SCB in the memo section of your check)
