September and October 2005

Dear Friends in Christ,

“If any man speak, let him speak as the oracles of God; if any man minister, let him do it as of the ability which God giveth: that God in all things may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom be praise and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.” 1 Peter 4:11

Services: The last couple of months have shown more stability in our people. We have been having over 50 in attendance, and more than 60 the past two weeks, with visitors in most services. It is great to see the growth, and the people wanting to serve.

Anniversary: The “Iglesia Bautista Semilla Preciosa” celebrated its 7th anniversary in July. We had a “potluck” dinner, with 90 in attendance, 2 saved and 7 baptized. Amen!

Salvations: Several have been coming out for visitation – soul winning. There have been 17 saved in services or on visitation.
The parents of one of our teens were saved. Two other people who had been attending services were also saved.
When visiting Jorge’s son about being baptized, I witnessed to Jorge about being saved, but he rejected the Lord. Five days later, a big fork lift ran over his head and chest. We prayed that he would have another opportunity to be saved. In just two weeks, he was back home and gladly accepted the Lord! He told me that he knew the Lord had spared his life, and he needed to serve Him. Amen! Please pray for him spiritually and physically, and that he will continue to be faithful to the Lord.

Teens: We took 10 of our teens to youth camp. All of them received a blessing, and surrendered their lives to serve the Lord in some capacity. Our teens have been bringing visitors, as well as winning some of their friends. There have been 15-20 teens in most every service. We pray they keep the excitement!

Please pray for César and Perla, who have had some disappointments in their lives, and are running with the wrong crowd.

Change: Please note our changed e-mail address: Also we have a new internet phone (1-513-898-1359) which will make it easier and cheaper for you to call us.

Praise: Good attendance and faithfulness; Anniversary; People saved & baptized; Camp & Teens’ growth

Prayer: National Pastor for the church; Spiritual lives of Jorge, César, Perla

In His Service,
