Matthew 1:23 says, “Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.” My family and I would like to wish each and every one of you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year 2017. My prayer is that together we can accomplish greater works for Christ during 2017.
We thank God for all the souls who have been saved and baptized throughout this year. We also thank the Lord for all the first-time visitors who have attended our church and the families that have been added to our church. Recently I invited a businessman by the name of Angel to our church. Angel got saved and is now attending faithfully with his family. It is a blessing to see Angel growing in the Lord. I also invited the chairman of our City Council to church, and he’s been attending faithfully with his wife and children.
During the month of November, we had our Thanksgiving service. Many first-time visitors attended. A clear presentation of the Gospel was given, and souls were saved. We also had the opportunity to travel to the Dominican Republic to preach the anniversary for our dear friend, Missionary Andres Amoros. Brother Amoros is doing a tremendous job winning the lost in the Dominican Republic.
• Please pray for souls to be saved and baptized.
• Please pray for our church growth and its ministries.
• Please pray for more laborers.
• Please pray for our trip to Hammond, Indiana, in March.
May God continue to bless you as you serve Him faithfully. Thank you very much for your love, prayers, and faithful support. WE HOPE YOU HAVE A MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR 2017. We believe the Lord has so many great things for us in 2017. Thank you for having a part in Puerto Rico. God bless you.
