We are in the second month of our school year. This year we have 25 children studying in our Christian school. Several of these kids are from our bus routes, while others are from faithful families that have attended our church for years.
María Antonieta is the mother of three who came to our church for the first time on January 7 of this year. She heard the announcements about the Christian school and asked if she could enroll her three children. I told her the requirements and that they needed to be faithful to church. After attending several churches in our area, she told me that they had already made the decision to attend faithfully. She enrolled her children in the school, and they have only missed one service since. I am overjoyed to see how the Lord has been working in the lives of this family. Two of her children have accepted Christ. One of them was led to the Lord by a concerned friend at school, and the other was led to the Lord by his teacher. Her husband Juan has heard the Gospel, and although he has not received Christ as his Saviour nor yet attended church, he has expressed a great desire to know more. Please pray that the Lord would continue to work in the lives of this family and that Juan would get saved.
Hector Pivaral and his wife Gaby have officially started the Iglesia Bautista Independiente in the town of Cuilapa, Santa Rosa. This is the young couple that was sent out of our church. They already have several faithful families attending and growing spiritually. In March, our church will be ordaining Hector. Thank you to all of you who have been a blessing to this family by sending them a special offering and praying for them. Pray also for Gaby’s pregnancy, as she will be giving birth at the end of March.
While out soul winning, I met a man named Leonardo Velázquez. I asked him if he would be interested in knowing how he could be saved from Hell. He told me that he had been thinking a lot about that. I shared with him how he could be saved from Hell and have a home in Heaven. Even though he understood the Gospel, he did not get saved. Please pray with me that Leonardo would get saved. I will let you know in our next prayer letter what happened.
His for souls,
Daniel & Misty Wilder, Lydia, Charity, Emily, Hannah, and Serenity
