“To let Christ keep our lives and not we ourselves.” – Hudson Taylor
As many of you already know, we have been assisting the mission work of Efata in Callao Dulanto. We are now in full-time responsibility for the restarting of this struggling church. Our body of believers has grown from 2 faithful members up to 8 in attendance on Sunday mornings. We have also, by God’s grace, taken a leap of faith and started a Wednesday night service. So far, we have had as few as 1 Deaf person and our family to 7 Deaf people, 1 hearing man, and our family! The Lord has confirmed to us all that it is not His will to let this church die, but that it should continue and thrive to the point of independence! Thank you, God!
A couple of Sundays ago, we had 19, including our family. We have our main church service first, then separate for a men’s class and a ladies’ class. That particular Sunday, we had 9 stay for the afternoon service. In the afternoon service, we have started a series on A-Z Bible Words. The goal is always to encourage the believers to read the Bible for themselves. The greatest blessing was seeing how eagerly everyone was taking notes and looking up the verses in their Bibles!
