General Update

Hi everyone!

Here's what's been happening in San Pedro the last little while, some upcoming events and a testimony. We're glad to have Stephen back after his yearly trip to the States; he said his time there was a blessing and is happy to have had the opportunity to minister and be ministered to.

We're keeping working on the church building, trying to finish up final details little by little. This past week some of the men of the church met to install rain gutters (yes, it does rain here!). This summer we have had quite a bit of rain and it tends to leak into the church, but we hope to have solved the problem now.

We are getting ready for a March for Jesus here in San Pedro tomorrow afternoon. Our youth group has been busy making signs and preparing to participate in the march, which starts at a local high school and ends with a service in the evening. Hopefully I will have pictures to post in the next couple of days.

And finally, some good news in the form of a testimony. A little while ago Marcela received a message from an ex-Calor player named David that said, "Sister Marcela, I'm really happy because I have become a Christian. All of the teaching and prayer that you gave us when I was on the team have finally paid off!" When he was on the team, David was a boy who, with almost every sentence that came out of his mouth, cursed or said inappropriate things. It was difficult to deal with him but we never lost hope that the Word of God would bear fruit in his life and with those around him. So it was very encouraging with he told use about his relationship with Jesus and how his life has changed because he's serving God.
