We spent our first week in our home in Los Charcos, having night services with Bro. Misael and his church. These people have grown so much. The services have been rich and the worship has been amazing. You would think you were in a meeting in the U.S.! Bro. Gustavo has learned most of the songs that we have translated and he has a wonderful gift to be spirit led with the worship as the people press in.
We drove to the city of Guiamaca, about 20 minutes from our house here, to check out the possibility of renting a building to start a church there. We drove around different areas, inquiring about vacant buildings. One man told us about a house for rent that he had just completed. We went to see it, and we were amazed how perfect it is for us. It is very near the center of the city, close to the small main grocery store. The front of the house has a huge room that we will use for the church. There is a large kitchen and 2 bedrooms with private bathrooms. There is another large room that we are making into 2 more small bedrooms so we can house more people. The water runs every day, rather than the twice weekly we have had. After much prayer and discussion with the ministry here, we have decided to move to this house. Bro. Rigo and Bro. Edwin will live there and begin to reach out to the the city. The ministry and church in Talanga will work together with them, and they will all share weekly services in both churches. We plan to move on Feb. 1st.
We are now in Danli working for 5 days with rhe people here. We will have 3 days of Bible studies, with services at night. This church has gone through a shaking, so we hope to be a strength and encouragement to them.
We appreciate all your prayers. We miss you all.
