God has blessed the Dominican Republic churches in many ways. We are encouraged with what he has done and continues to do! The church in Santiago which was 42 members 2 1⁄2 years ago has reached 70 members.
The church also collect its highest special contribution to date - $128,000US. This is the power of God considering that the average national monthly salary in the DR is $400US. Through the generous donation of a couple in the US, the church in Santo Domingo was able to hire a much needed minister for our teen ministry. It has brought about a resurgence in the teens and the parents. Many teens are studying and coming around. We expect to see 'much fruit' this year and in the years to come. The Bible talks (which took place on Sunday afternoons) in time turned into 'mini services' with 40-60 in attendance! So far, about 6 people have made Jesus lord through the efforts and sacrifices of the members.
We are working on the identification, training, & raising up of future elders. Pray for us as we work toward maturing the church in this area. Our church building which was constructed 4 years ago and which we needed to take a mortgage on only owes $109,000US, and Lord willing, in the next few years will be paid off!
