MARCH was definitely eventful for us. We had so many things happening at the same time, so we will just mention them quickly: the first week of March we participated in an awesome two-day MARRIAGE RETREAT, then held a baby shower for a new mother in our church.The second week of March we not only moved to a NEW HOUSE just a few blocks away, but also started a NEW HOMESCHOOL YEAR with the kids, and Ben started a new year teaching in the Bible college in Casanova!
We are, thankfuly, settled into the new house, and settled into the new routine of a new school year. The second Sunday in March, we had 5 follow the Lord in believers’ BAPTISM, and we had a special service in which we formally established church MEMBERSHIP! The end of March, saw us receiving a huge blessing as a church family. We have had a PROPERTY lent to our church rent free for now, with the possibility of it being GIFTED to us in the future. We are overwhelmed and grateful to God for His goodness to us!
APRIL was no less busy. Along with the usual ministry, we took part in a family EASTER RETREAT, with 39 going from our church. Rachelle was able to lead a young woman, Solange, to the Lord while there! April 27th was the date for a joint YOUTH EVENT, with our youth group involved, and Ben was able to lead a young man, Lucas, to salvation! Please pray for the UPCOMING months: May- working on the new church, June- 2nd church anniversary (at the new property), and Father’s Day, then hosting a team for ten days!
