Dear Pastor, Family, and Friends
We just want to take a moment and let you know how things have been going here in Santiago, Chile. Unfortunately, we have been terribly affected by the virus and because of this have been under some very strict restrictions. We are in our fourth or fifth month under martial law with limited mobility.
We are still only allowed to leave our home twice per seven days for three hours max per trip to purchase groceries and do any other things that have to be done: doctors visits, banking, pay bills, etc. I really haven’t been keeping count how long it has been this way, but this week on a local news cast I saw a post that said 121 days in quarantine. We continue to trust the Lord to give us wisdom.
We are grateful that our family is healthy, and all though we are limited the Lord is not. We continue to broadcast services online through Facebook, and the Lord is blessing these transmissions. We have had viewers from more than 10 different countries and have reached thousands of people we would not have reached other wise. So, although we are anxious to have our services together with our brothers and sisters in Christ we are grateful for what the Lord continues to do.
We are still praying for a property for Grace Baptist Church (Iglesia Bautista Gracia), and are trusting the Lord to provide all that is needed to purchase the property and make the necessary renovations. If you would like send a gift to help us make this purchase you can send it to the address listed below for support and designated “Grace Land Purchase” We want to say thank you to those who have already sent and offering to help with this. We have a ways to go, but are confident the Lord will provide.
We want to close by saying thank you again for your faithfulness. It is because of you that we are able to be in Chile doing what the Lord has called us to do. We trust that the Lord will bless you and give you fruit that remains for you faithfulness.
Jamie, Erica, Morgan, Luke, and Meredith
