I just want to praise the Lord for His goodness and continued blessings on our family and ministry! Sometimes I find it hard to condense all that God is doing into a one page letter, but this is a great problem to have in my opinion!
One of the greatest blessing happened last week. A young lady, Lourdes, placed her faith and trust in Jesus Christ! Lourdes began attending our church while we were in the States for a short time. Her aunt, Rita, a faith lady in our church invited her. Piper Henry befriended her while she visited and stayed in communication with her. Lourdes continued to attend and is now super faithful and growing! Before salvation, she was a professing atheist! Not only did Lourdes get saved recently, but Neyland, our youngest son, also trusted Christ as his Savior! I am beyond excited to watch God use his life!
We have also seen substantial progress made on the construction of our new property! The floor is poured, we have running water, bathrooms, a nursery, and are opening up space to extend the auditorium space to accommodate up 75 people! We are still in need of roughly $26,000 to complete all the construction, but will continue building as we can. We will be holding our first service at the new property on August 6th. On August 20th, we will have a big Kid’s Day event and use it as an outreach for the community. Last year we had 130 attend and are planning for 200 this year, Lord willing!
I am still just so impressed and encouraged by the spiritual growth of our young people as well. Brian Jr., one of our first and most faithful young men is running the sound system and doing a tremendous job! Yago, is always available to do whatever is asked of him. (To a certain extent) My son, Peyton, is learning to play the guitar and Lord willing will be playing for our church in the near future!
Please be praying for the events coming up and that we will be able to reach more souls to the glory of God!
Thank you for your continued love, prayers, and support of our family!
