Dear Friends in Christ,

We trust and pray that you and yours are well, happy and rejoicing in the service for the Lord. After trying to serve Him for more than fifty years, we are convinced that it is the only way for His followers to be well, happy and rejoicing!

Do you remember Charles Spurgeon and the Park Street tabernacle? Why did it lose its influence? During Spurgeon’s 38 years as pastor of the Metropolitan Tabernacle, his congregation included 6,000 worshippers and added 14,000 members. Clearly the Metropolitan Tabernacle was one of the most influential churches of the 19th century. In 1972, however, seventy-five years after Spurgeon retired, some pastors visiting his church counted only 87 worshippers for the morning service. What happened? In simple terms the church had somewhere along the way, lost its focus. Let’s keep our focus on Jesus Christ and the glorious Gospel!

We are pleased with the spiritual growth of our Brother Jorge Bazán. He is maturing from week to week and is a good and faithful worker. We try to direct him and show by example what it is to be a fruitful servant of the Lord. Please remember to pray for him and his family.

This year we have not experienced the “Summer Slump” in our Hispanic church. And we have just about as many coming to our Wednesday evening preaching and prayer meeting as we have on Sunday morning. Another interesting notation is that we have as many, if not more, men than women attending our preaching services. Please pray for the recently baptized believers that they will remain faithful in their attendance and in their spiritual lives. We need to remember that “our adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour.” (1 Peter 5:8)

Again we want to whole heartedly thank you for your prayers and support. You are deeply appreciated! That God continues to bless you is our prayer!
