DecemberÂ Caracas Venezuela
Â Dear Churches,
I want to start out by wishing you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year full of blessings from our great God. Â
This month has been full of blessings, since this month we were able to rent a building for our church, after a year and three months of prayer and searching for a building. We were finally able to find a place this month almost as a Christmas gift.
Â The excitement of our church people was so great that in our first service the majority of the people were crying over the precious gift the Lord has given us. Maybe you canâ€™t understand what we have gone through, but in all the time that we did not have a building, we went through trials, discouragements, etc. But we all learned great lessons such as Godâ€™s provision, He has always provided a place where we could meet, we also learned that He knows the right time and He will gives us His best if we wait in Him.
Â I want to thank the Lord for having provided the money byÂ using pastor Austin Gardner and Vision Baptist Church in Alpharetta, Georgia, giving us a love offering to help cover the costs and the deposit that was required of us.
We have started a new year, with a great blessing, we want to take advantage of this year to the fullest, we have committed ourselves to the Lord that we will give all of ourselves to do more for our great God, the whole church is willing to evangelize more and to disciple. We want the Lord to keep pouring out blessings and also see the great power of God moving in the midst of us, seeing people saved, transformed and committed. We want to see young people surrendering their lives to be a servant of the Lord. You are a part of all of this; thank you for your offerings and your prayers, every one of them has sustained us and God will reward you until your cup is running over.
Â Lets keep going forward in this new year, willing to keep loving and serving him. We have a long way to go and there are still great things that God wants to do among us. Pray for us as we pray for you for the edifying of the body of Christ.
Â Julio Marquina and family
