Love Baptist Church continues to evangelize, disciple, train, and grow. We are seeing more fruit as each month passes. God is changing lives through His Word. A 22-year-old young man named Bastian is one of the most recent people to trust Jesus as His Savior. He is the boyfriend of Manuel’s sister, Jazmín. Manuel is the man I wrote about last month who recently surrendered to be in the ministry. Manuel invited his sister (who had already made a profession of faith) and Bastian to church. They both came to a service and we led Bastian to Christ after their first service they attended. Bastian and Jazmín have been attending every week since then. Also, Bastian started personal discipleship with us and is growing in his new walk with the Lord. He is very teachable and is hungry to learn more about the Bible.
On Sunday morning, September 15 we had a special service to celebrate Chile’s independence which is similar to July 4 in the States. However, here it is celebrated for multiple days and involves many cultural activities including dressing up like a “huaso” (Chilean cowboy). We passed out a bunch of invitations and ran some adds on social media. We had games, contests, and food following the service. God blessed us with 14 first-time visitors and the highest attendance in our nine-month history of 62 people. I preached a clear presentation of the gospel. Although no one raised their hand for salvation we are still thankful that many heard the gospel which has the power to save. Please be in prayer for the 14 visitors as we follow up with them and inquire more about their relationship with the Lord.
The second trimester of 2019 at the Chile Training Center came to end in mid-September. God continues to bless this vital part of the ministry here in Santiago. The final trimester will end this December. Pray for the 50 students enrolled.
We continue our search for a future, permanent property for Love Baptist Church. We are still praying and asking God to supply the funds to purchase something by the end of this year. If you would like to help out, you may send a check to Vision Baptist Missions (address below) noted: Love Baptist Chile. Thank you for your consideration.
