Luz de Vida Church
May 2018 Update
Greetings, brothers and sisters! As a church, we’re very thankful to God and to you who support us with this ministry to keep growing. With great joy, I can say that now we have 12 classrooms for Sunday school and for the activities carried out by the Compassion project! We can now conduct workshops on entrepreneurship, evangelistic campaigns, and other activities with comfort in our new space. We have seen support and interest on the part of the families that attend the church increase as the construction progresses.
In the past few months, we conducted a service activity to the community. We cleaned the areas surrounding the church – this was conducted by the mothers in the Home-based Model program. We also gave a general cleaning to the premises of the project, which was carried out by the mothers in the Survival Program. We had a workshop on entrepreneurship where the mothers learned to hand sew. With the children, we had an evangelistic time where they learned about the True Story of the gospel.
Though things are going well, we have faced some challenges. One of the big challenges was the inclement weather since we had consistent rainfall and hailfall that would not let us advance with the construction as quickly as we hoped. However, thanks to the Lord, we carried on working to complete the construction. We have completed the concrete on the 4th floor. The ground floor has the chapel, a kitchen, and one room that will work as an office. The next floor, the 1st floor, has 4 classrooms, where the finishing work has been 90% completed. In the next month, we will work on the finishing details in the 2nd and 3rd floor, and will also complete the rough work in the 4th floor.
We wholeheartedly thank our brothers and sisters in Christ that are financing this project. We are praying for your lives. You share blessings by financing this construction.
Jose says that he’s lived in the neighborhood for 15 years. He says that there was no church in the neighborhood where he could worship. So, to attend a church he had to travel a long distance – he had to walk for about two and a half hours, or travel for about one and half hours by car. Needless to say, it was very difficult for him to attend church. When he learned that a church was going to be built in the neighborhood, he felt very happy and decided to attend the Luz de Vida church along with his whole family. Currently, they worship at our church. This brother in Christ is also helping with the construction on his free days. Brother Jose has his 7-year-old son registered in the Compassion project. He feels happy with this because he says that his son is growing in biblical principles and hopes that one day his son will become a church leader.
