What a difference 5 years makes !!

Well 5 years on and Jess and Sam are still doing D. I. Y on the church buildings. This time we all signed our names and wrote messages on the walls of the new El Puente Church building before  painting it. Five years ago 4 Williamsons did everything by themselves, today 20 members of Iglesia El Puente came together to paint the church building and the verse Jessica wrote on the wall was  Todo yo puedo en Cristo que me fortalece. I can do all things in Christ who gives me strength.

Church planting  has been an amazing family adventure for us all, Sam says that when he grows up he thinks he will probably be part of a church but does not want to make one!

Building Church Community

There has been so much focus on the new El Puente church building recently that it has been fun to have some special church family time together. It has been great to have opportunities to invite friends and family to spend time with our church family in a relaxed setting too.
