What an amazing month we have had throughout July! While it was a full schedule and very little time to get everything accomplished that we desired, God blessed and continues to do so!
Our church, Iglesia Bautista Esperanza experienced several services with 19 – 20 people in attendance, with many first and second-time visitors. I was able to finish the first round of English classes, and Baptist Distinctives on Sunday evening. We are currently preaching through 1 John on Wednesdays and teaching discipleship during Sunday school. The amount of spiritual growth in our young church is certainly amazing to witness and be a part of!
I’m thankful to have celebrated my 38th birthday on the 22nd, and enjoy a few days away with my bride in the city. Having Ashlee serve by my side is the greatest asset I have in my ministry!
I was also privileged to preach a three day youth conference in La Plata, just an hour south of where we are, for Iglesia Bautista Berea, and Pastor Hernan Cortez! We are praising the Lord for several professions of faith! They were a tremendous encouragement and blessing to us! Though I would like to be further along in my langauge ability, I’m grateful for how they overlooked this “Yanqui” preacher’s butchering of their langauge.
Our church has also began raising and setting aside funds for our permanent church property. We expect to outgrow our current facilities, that we are renting, within the first year. Being able to provide a permanent location is our top prority for the near future.
