I just cannot keep up with what all the Lord is doing here in El Salvador. If you read the last post, you know that a group of people from our Bible studies were interested in forming a church. And Abigail supported the idea completely. There was a co-pastor who works in the area whom we spoke with to see if he would be willing to come and give the Word on Thursday nights. He was very interested in the idea. (He is very founded in the Word and is from a great church here in El Sal. So we knew the reputation and where he was coming from) So we decided to have a meeting with him and a few of the people who seemed to be leaders from the Bible study group to see what we could set up. I planned the meeting for 12 people. Well, word got out about the meeting and we had 42 people show up. I told the pastor that this was church, not a planning meeting. He preached and 5 lives were changed for eternity!!! The next week, we had over 50 show up, then over 60, then more than 80....our last service, we had over 100 people in attendance. WOW!!!!! We have heard testimonies of healings, both physical and within the family, more than 20 eternal decisions have been made. In one service, we had two men who literally fell to their knees to change their lives. We have a list of people to be baptized. So we are moving forward with formally setting up this church. We voted on the name Fountain of New Life. And we are already out growing our space!!!! What a wonderful problem!!!!
This week, we will start to include Children's church.
