Praises & Prayer Requests
> The Lord graciously provided the $19,500 needed to help launch Iglesia Bautista de Costa Verde. We want to thank each church, family, and individual who gave to help meet this special need. We would also like to thank each of you prayed with us.
> We have been praying that Isaac’s life would demonstrate fruit of salvation. On Friday, December 20, Isaac talked to both us saying, “I want to be sure I am saved.” We believe he clearly understands his sin, his need for repentance of those sins, and the fact that Jesus is his Lord and Savior who was crucified, buried, and resurrected for those sins. He initiated a desire to be baptized, so it was with great joy that we were able to witness his baptism on December 29.
