Pastor, Friends, and Family,
September was a great month in the life and ministry of Iglesia Bautista Gracia. We started a monthly teens meeting, ladies meeting and men’s meeting. Each group is meeting once per month and doing a bible study together. The attendance in each meeting was very encouraging. This month we have already had our teens meeting for October with four first time visitors. We also had our first baptisms and celebrated Chile’s independence day with a BBQ. The dedication and desire of Diego and Ángelica to be baptized was very encouraging. It was a cold cloudy day in the 50’s, outside, and in water that was not much warmer. They are really growing in the Lord. We are grateful for Juan Carlos and Ángela, the young couple working with us, for all their dedication to disciple this young couple and for opening up their home for us to have a place for the extra meetings.
We are still praying for a building. For the time being, we are still meeting in a community center. We are thankful to the Lord for providing this opportunity, but we continue to pray for a permanent location. A property near where we are meeting that would not require a lot of modification is for sale. They are asking approximately $80,000.00 USD for the property. This would be great location, but we know the Lord’s timing is perfect, so, we continue to work and pray. If the Lord leads you to make a gift to help toward our goal to purchase a building you can send all gifts to the address listed here.
All gifts for the property purchase can be sent to:
PO BOX 519
Braselton, GA 30517
(Please Note All Gits “Smithey Grace Property”)
Update on Meredith:
Thank you so much for praying for Meredith. After a difficult start to her recovery she is doing so much better. Her therapist has been bragging on her and how far she has come. She still has up to two months of therapy to go. Please continue to pray for her full recovery.
