John 15:16 says, “Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.” I pray that when you receive this letter, you are doing well, along with your family and loved ones. My family and I are doing well and would like to thank you so much for being a part of this ministry.
We thank God for the first-time visitors and for the families who attend our church on a weekly basis. We also thank God for those who were saved and baptized during our services. A lady by the name of Ana was brought to church by one of our soul winners and was saved and baptized after hearing the Gospel of Jesus Christ preached. A young lady by the name of Luz moved to our area from New York, and another one of our soul winners led her to the Lord. Luz recently was baptized and is growing in the Lord. Another young lady named Saskia came to one of our teen activities and was sweetly saved. Please pray that she would follow the Lord in believer’s baptism.
Thank you for praying for my wife’s gallbladder surgery. It went well, and she has recovered well. Please pray for my dad, Alfredo Martinez. Recently on a Sunday morning, we had to rush him to the hospital with a kidney infection. He was hospitalized for two weeks and then released. While in the hospital, my dad would talk to everybody he could about Jesus. Please pray that he would continue to recover. My dad is a vital part of our ministry here.
