Yesterday was an encouraging Sunday. Our little congregation, Independent Baptist Church, received two new members and also had our first baby dedication!

In the morning service, a couple that was reached early on in our ministry came to present themselves and their new little one, Benício, to the Lord. Along with the family, came the little guy’s two grandmothers. It was a true blessing!


In the evening service, we were able to receive a young couple for membership. I had been talking off and on with the husband for some time, and on occasion we dealt with the assurance of his salvation. The Lord has given that him!


We are deeply encouraged by the hand of God on our ministry. Your prayers, no doubt, have been a major factor in that. Thank you for continuing to bring this fledgling work to the Lord. We need His continued mercies, blessings and grace!
