General Update: Discipleship, Outreach and Expansion

We have been discipling a new couple in the church and this past Monday, Luis decided to give his life to Jesus. He was so eager to be baptized that he didn't want to wait for a baptismal service so we filled up the tub we're using and he was baptized.This coming Saturday we are continuing the effort to evangelize couples and are having a special dinner and outreach for new couples, hosted by the youth group. Please be in prayer for this event, and look for more information and pictures from the evening next week.

Also a short soccer update: El Calor was eliminated from the playoffs last Saturday with a 10-1 global score in the first round. Although we're disappointed, we're also proud to have made it to the playoffs in the first season after ascending to 2nd Division, a feat that no other team has ever accomplished. The team had a week off and the preseason starts this Monday. We are waiting and praying for the new players who will arrive and ask that you be in prayer also, that God will send the necessary people and that he will open their hearts to receive his Word and be saved. Thanks to an unexpected offering, we are also in the process of repairing and expanding the clubhouse, and hope to double the number of players who stay here. We are also expanding our asylum facilities and are waiting on the arrival of more children and teens who need to be rescued from violence and drug trafficking.

Thank you to those of you who support these ministries both financially and in prayer; may God bless you many times over and above what you put into the work here.
