Greetings, Redeemer Church! Thank you for your gift to plant Iglesia Bautista Filadelfia II in Bolivia. Your support is making it possible for children and families to experience the love of Christ in a community where there are no churches. Beneficiaries receive holistic care that helps them have hope.
This report includes updates on construction and church activities, a testimony from a church leader and praises and prayer requests.
Great progress has been made on construction. Workers built ground-floor support structures for the classrooms and bathrooms. Church members and staff from the mother and daughter churches have been eager to help with construction.
Challenges and Opportunities
As Bolivia experiences a third wave of COVID-19, many families are struggling financially. This limits what they are able to contribute to the church to help fund construction and makes it difficult to organize food sales. The church plans to do all that they can to raise the necessary local resources.
Construction workers plan to continue building brick walls on the first floor. They thank you for understanding any delays in construction due to COVID-19.
The church rejoices that in the past 60 days, three children professed faith in Christ. Currently, six adults and over 60 children regularly attend church services and Children’s Bible Club. The church completed an evangelism effort in the community that reached children, adolescents and parents with biblical teachings and songs of praise.
A Testimony From Jerwuin, a Church Leader
“I thank God for the opportunity to be part of the leadership team for this beloved church. I am also grateful for the new construction. Though there have been challenges, the construction process has taught us how to work together as a team. It is a blessing that the mother church is spreading the gospel to communities like ours where the majority of people do not know Christ. We pray that everything goes according to God’s will. We know it will be a great blessing to the families who live in this beautiful place. Thank you very much for helping us make this dream come true.”
Praises and Prayer Requests
Iglesia Bautista Filadelfia II asks you to join them in praying for the church construction to be completed on schedule, for the gospel to reach many families and for success in raising local resources. They praise God for your support.
