As your church plant project, Iglesia de Dios Pentecostal MI (Los Pocitos), approaches completion, we are pleased to provide you with the latest construction update on this project in the department of Leon in Nicaragua.
The completed church was inaugurated on Feb. 9, and other celebrations are now possible, such as quinceaneras (girls’ 15th-birthday celebrations), dedication of children, parent meetings and more.
Currently, 18 families and 20 children regularly attend the church. Two more people have made first-time professions of faith in Christ since the previous update, and 13 were baptized.
The Feb. 9 inauguration was an unforgettable experience. One challenge we had near the end was finishing the church’s facade, which was not on same plane as the rest of the building, but the finished work is a great improvement. Sidewalks were set around the church, classroom, and kitchen. Trenches were set for the outdoor water drainage, and a sink was added for the bathrooms. None of these extra items was in the budget, so it was a great blessing of God to get to realize that unexpected dream.
Both the community and the pastor of the mother church have been a great blessing and have seen great challenges. The pastor was tireless in following up on everything that was going to be done every day. He gave his all to provide something very nice in the community and for our children to be in a pleasant environment. THANK GOD FOR EVERYTHING!!!
Testimony of Impact
It is a testimony of the greatness of God and His will. I feel very happy because I have now celebrated birthdays, children’s dedications, and baptisms of more members at this church. Alliances have been made with authorities, such as politicians and schools, and we are excited about the Survival Program, which will begin soon in our community. This been a great impact and a great challenge for my person and church. Thanks to the national office for all the great support you have given us.
– Pastor Flor
Praise and Prayer Requests
We give thanks to God for having finished this project without any trouble fulfilling the contract.
Please support us and pray that the vision of the church is realized – to see many souls come to Christ through the children registered in the extended classroom. May God touch the hearts of the parents so they may know Jesus and surrender their hearts. Please also pray that young people of the sector may have that experience in the service of the Lord.
