Pastors and Friends,
The last two months have been exciting. We are seeing the fruit of much work and many prayers in Iglesia Bautista Redentor. The church is continuing to grow and we had our first baptism and family conference. I recently went back and reviewed the last six months of records since we started at Redentor and was encouraged to see that we have had 34 first time visitors, 12 professions of faith, 4 baptisms, and several people who have taken discipleship classes.
We also want to thank you for praying for my mother. She had to have an open heart triple by-pass surgery. The surgery was successful and she is continuing to recover at home. It has been very difficult for my family not be in the states to help her during this time, but we are thankful for family and church family that have stepped in and provided the support that she and my dad have needed.
Also, I finished teaching my second class in the Bible College. It is a great joy to teach and it provides another opportunity to improve my Spanish. Speaking of the Bible College we are currently raising funds to purchase a building and land for the Bible College. We will be sending out more information about this project in the coming months as we work to raise the funds by the end of the year. If you are looking for a missionary project to support with VBS offerings I would encourage to pray about giving to our Bible College project.
We are so grateful for your support and prayers. We are not worthy of your investment in our lives, but Christ is and he has given much fruit that will remain to your account in our short time in Chile.
