Thank you all for your love and encouragement as our ministry continues to grow and God works in the hearts of our people in Argentina! October has been a month full of the blessings of God and we look forward to His continued blessings in our ministry.
Pastor Lee Wimberly, and Bro Jeff Furlong came for a short visit to look over a few potential properties and see the work God is doing. I can honestly say that I was more encouraged by their visit than they may ever know. We believe we have found the piece of property, with a partially constructed building that God would have us purchase as our permanent location for Iglesia Bautista Esperanza!
Within the next week, I will be sending a more detailed description of the building along with our financial breakdown, and tentative timeline for completion. The first step is to raise the cost of the building/property which is $85,000. This includes closing costs, commissions, and fees. The next step will be to raise the funds needed to complete the construction. This amount is expected to be around $30,000. We are also incorporating the purchase of a ministry van in the final price in order to transport folks from our current location to the new facility. Our best estimate for this is $20,000, totaling $135,000. We know God is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, and that He will provide all that we need to see His work accomplished in Argentina!
On a similar note, I’m so thankful for all that He is doing with our small church. We have broken 20 people in the last several services, and had a young man trust Christ as His savior just last night. Folks are being saved. Believers are growing and maturing spiritually. We are taking full advantage of the opportunities God is giving us to serve! We are truly living out His purpose for our lives and it is exciting!
Please be praying with us about this step of faith, and all that it entails. While this may be uncharted territory for me, this is nothing new to our Great God!
