Father's Day and the Church Anniversary

Sunday we celebrated Father's Day AND the Fourth Anniversary of the Iglesia Bautista La Esperanza. What a wonderful day it was, full of blessings from the start! First, we were surprised at the arrival of our friend and fellow missionary Flo Martin, and even MORE surprised at who accompanied her. An old mutual friend, and member of one of our favorite churches in Texas, Trinity Baptist in Arlington. Doris is from Guatemala and had come here to visit family members. What a blessing to see her, particularly on this special occasion. Several of our young people read Scriptures honoring their fathers. The worship in song was enthusiastic, and God was glorified! A special speaker had been invited, Bro. Job Fuentes, and his message was a challenge from the book of Joshua. After the preaching, lunch was served to everyone. We had spaghetti with meat sauce, salad, French bread, and apple cake. The sweetest thing of all was the fellowship among the believers. We hope your Father's Day was equally blessed!

avoid the people, you might better stay at home." ~ James Michener
