March Prayer Letter: Another Man Surrenders, Teen Camp
The Lord continues to bless His work here in Santiago, Chile. Summer is a time of vacation, camps, and a break from classes at the Chile Training Center. We had our annual summer teen camp that the Lord blessed in a great way. Our fellow VBM missionary, Miguel Sanabria, serving in Colombia, was our guest preacher for the week. He challenged the 120 young people. Professions of faith were made and many surrendered to do God’s will for their lives.
We are very grateful for another young man who has recently surrendered to be a church planter at our church. Leo and his wife, Polette, are serving in our children’s ministry. He has also been giving some offering devotionals. They have a five-year-old son named Esteban as well. We would appreciate your prayers for all three men (José, Manuel, and Leo) who are faithfully training with us at Love Baptist Church with the goal to plant more churches.
My parents came to visit us for the first time. It was a joy to see them especially here in Chile where we have been serving for nearly three years. While I was growing up, my father pastored two churches in Georgia for a total of 20 years. He preached on personal evangelism and taught our couples meeting. He also spoke at our team’s marriage meeting for pastor’s and church leaders. He and my mother were a blessing to all. We enjoyed our time with them.
This month, please be praying with us for:
- … the organization of Love Baptist Church on March 8. My pastor and his wife will be down for the special organization service.
- … the final 77% of the $125,000 property purchase of Love Baptist Church.
- … God to lead us to the right property to rent and begin outreach and holding services at our second church plant that we hope to start very soon.
- … for the start of the first trimester at the Chile Training Center on March 2.
