Someone we know well gives a first-hand report of what they see happening:
“There is a branch church in Shell. On my way back from another church, I ran into “L” and he told me where they were meeting. I went last week and again this week. They are meeting in a small classroom, I think it was a kindergarten or something similar, with a large patio of cement or gravel. Anyway, just wanted you to know that I feel there is strong leadership and they are teaching on the book of Acts with encouraging interaction. The men are meeting on Friday to study as well. There were 15 at the youth meeting last night. Several young couples too with little ones. Most of them are from the Quichua Tribe in the jungle and all, except one older lady are fluent in Spanish. “
This reminds me of what was taking place in the Book of Acts; “The report of this came to the ears of the church in Jerusalem, and they sent Barnabas to Antioch.” (Acts 11:22). Often news of what God is doing requires a personal visit to verify what is taking place. Our hearts come away praising the Lord for His faithfulness to cause the seed to spring forth and become fruitful. REJOICE WITH US!!
