Dear Pastor, Family and Friends,
We want to thank you for your prayers and support and give you an update on what took place in August and ask you to continue to pray for us and the work here in Chile.
We had a special emphasis in Iglesia Bautista Esperanza of revival in the life of the church and each member personally. We were blessed to have guest preachers each Sunday night that brought a message that challenged us to refocus our attention in Christ and his work. One of the the guest preachers was a graduate of the training center and another is currently enrolled in classes and will be finishing soon. Both are doing a great job pastoring and leading in there local churches.
There were three professions of faith made, and Erica was able to lead two ladies to the Lord. She is starting discipleship with them now. Please pray that this time will be profitable for helping these ladies grow in faith.
The Lord continues to bless the work here as we are hearing reports every week of people being saved at the different churches and the enrollment in the training center continues to increase.
Iglesia Bautista Redentor also had a good month. We have a another missionary pastor from Peru who we have worked with the entire time we were in Redentor who is continuing to lead in the work there while we are helping in Iglesia Bautista Esperanza and Trinidad. Redentor had a special children’s event in August that was very successful. Please continue to pray for a location for Redentor. It has been very difficult to find a house or building that is affordable for the church to rent and that will also give us permission to use the facilities for a church.
We are currently raising funds to help with the start up cost of the new church plant: Rent, sound equipment, seating, construction remodeling , etc. If you would like to contribute to this you can send your offerings to our support address listed below and mark it CHILE CHURCH PLANT. Thank you again for all you have given and sacrificed to allow us to do the work God has called us to.
