Pastors, Friends and Family,
We had a great close to 2018 in the ministries here in Chile. There have been people saved and starting discipleship classes. We have had people who have finished discipleship classes, and there has been several new first time visitors and new families to join our churches.
We have continued to work in Iglesia Bautista Esperanza (Hope Baptist Church) and Iglesia Bautista Trinidad (Trinity Baptist Church) primarily. Both churches are doing well and continuing to grow. Also, we have been excited to see how Iglesia Bautista Redentor (Redeemer Baptist Church) has been doing in our absence. While we have been away the church has had two location changes and some other challenges to over come, but the Lord led them through it and in December they had a great month and continue to grow.
Our time working and serving in Esperanza and Trinidad is quickly coming to and end, and we have started actively looking to rent a property to start a new church as early as March. We are excited about the opportunity of starting a new church and are praying for the Lord’s direction. We have narrowed our search down to four communities, and would like to move forward with renting the building by the end of January 2019, so that we will have the month of February to prepare the building to open in March. In order to do this we need approximately $15,000. This includes the first three months rent, security deposit, relators fees, equipment (chairs, boards, keyboard, etc.) and construction costs. If you would like to make a gift to contribute to this need you can send it to the address listed below to send support. Please mark any gift for this project “Church Property”.
Thank you again for your prayers and support for our family. It is our privilege to serve the Lord together with you for the sake of the gospel in Chile and around the world.
