Praise God for wonderful things that are happening at La Esperanza. Numerous individuals have begun to study God’s Word in preparation to become leaders. Some are going to start in the church’s C.C.M. (Centro de capacitacion ministerial) Ministerial Training Center, because they want to serve the Lord with excellence.
Pray that La Esperanza will become a church of fully devoted believers in Jesus Christ. “I don’t want to have a thousand people who don’t know what they are doing there,” says Javier Forero, associate pastor. “I would like to have a hundred people who know, love, and serve the Lord and who are going to change the area.”
Pray for additional leadership at La Esperanza. “We are doing everything,” says Pilar Forero. “He preaches. I teach the kids.” They’d also like to start a youth group.
The church recently purchased equipment to provide English translation during the worship service. Pray that the Lord would bring more English speaking people and a multi-cultural church would develop.
Pray that it might be possible for Pilar to work more with Javier in ministry. Currently, she must work outside the home.
Pray for two more Spanish-speaking churches to begin in Bradenton and Sebring, Fla. It will take time and effort. Pray that many people will come to Christ as a result.
