We have began holding services for Iglesia Bautista Esperanza in Ezeiza, Argentina!
God sure has been good to us as we are continuing to remodel and change a garage into our church! We are almost done with the major changes, and will have little things to continue completing along the way.
The most exciting part is that so far, we have had 9 professions of faith, 20 in attendance, and 4 young men that never leave our side if we are at the church. They are hungry to learn and grow in the Lord! Almost everyday, Brian and I spend hours with these young men at the church, teaching them the Bible, showing them how to serve, and pass out invitations to our services within the community.
For Father’s Day, our attendance was much lower as many had other obligations to attend, but we gave out a Bible to a visiting dad, and two other Bibles to young men. So far, we have given out 6 coffee cups to folks that have attended three consecutive services. It is very encouraging to see people coming back to services throughout the week, especially to hear this “yanqui” do a mediocre job preaching in Spanish.
Please be praying with us for:
- Continued growth and outreach in the community for Iglesia Bautista Esperanza!
- The discipleship and training of young men for future ministry!
- Pray that we can find a property to buy for the future church building. We are half full with 20 people, and will need to build within the year. A lot in our area will cost roughly $35,000 and it will cost another $75,000 to build a building.
