2011 Church Anniversary

Greetings from Lima, PERU. We began this new year celebrating Iglesia Bautista El Manantial's 13th anniversary with special services from January 14-16. One of the area pastors spoke each evening. We enjoyed special music, a church supper and the baptism of two young people.

We had about 55 in attendance on Friday and Saturday nights. Sunday we had several visitors with an attendance of 75.

Special music from the young people.

The Church Supper

The delicious food prepared by the ladies.

We had the dinner on the second floor of the church.

The Baptism

Last June we asked prayer for Jhonny, who had just accepted the Lord. For quite some time, he has been eager to be baptized. In our September letter we mentioned his wife, Karina, who had a premature baby boy, Esteban. We praise the Lord that their little baby is doing fine.

The anniversary cakes.
