Iglesia Cristiana Cuadragular Central
April 2021 Update
Greetings brothers and sisters of MONAT! We are excited to share with you an update on the ministries and construction of Iglesia Christiana Cuadragular Cristo Rey.
Over the last couple of months, we have continued the construction of our church. We completed lifting the walls, constructed the mooring beams and water channels, and have begun the ceiling installation. The walls are now ready for doors and windows.
We have been conducting services in the church with good attendance not only of adults; but also, of children implementing evangelistic programs in the streets, monitoring families with family cell phones, and preparing leaders on evangelistic methods issues.
The church, through the Childhood Development Center, was trained to preach the gospel with the materials that Compassion provides to leaders, pastors and staff who will work in the Development Center; with the objective of organizing playful strategies and being able to implement them in the members of the church, children and the community in general. This will also be used as a basis to start tutoring the children who are going to be chosen for the program.
In February, the Childhood Development Center, together with the church staff of the Cristo Rey church, conducted poverty surveys and pre-registration of children from 2 years and 5 months to 5 years old with the objective of selecting children who apply. In April and May, we have and will proceed to take photos, request important documents, sign consents, and collect general data.
Progress has been made in construction despite the weather, as there was a severe drought in February, so a deep temporary well had to be drilled to extract water for the construction.
The church has contributed in the workforce looking for volunteers to help in the construction, and even the contribution of food for volunteer workers with the aim of encouraging them to continue working on the construction.
Over the next couple of months, we will install water and sanitation in the bathrooms and kitchen, construct the floors, and install the windows and doors. So much will be done! We will also hold our inauguration soon!
God has been good to us. He has heard our prayers. For some time, we have asked God to guide us to bring the gospel to more people and seeing this great opportunity in my congregation fills me with happiness. That is why I am one of the people that go almost every day to see how I can help. Even just giving water to the workers and knowing that very soon we will have many families united, fulfills me.
PRAISES AND PRAYER REQUESTS
We thank God because He has been good to help us throughout this process and place it in your heart to contribute to this project of love and dedication to the children and other communities of our municipality.
Let’s pray together for families, unity, love, the respect that has been lost in some of them and that God will fill each heart and place joy in them. May families humbly come to the feet of Jesus and that at last, there would be a change in our community.
We always have you in our prayers because without knowing us, you have given us help. We pray that God grant the desires of your heart according to His will.
