First service in the New Building

Well it was a rush to get the windows and doors finished in time but we made it! Iglesia El Puente celebrated our first service in our own building on Fathers' day . We had a wonderful celebration and we are so excited to be in our own building at last. We have the next 2 months to finish off the kitchen and bathrooms and move everything in properly before the official opening but we have made an excellent start and we are reminded that God is our perfect heavenly father who faithfully provides for his children. We were delighted to have some visitors, one of the construction workers came with his girlfriend, we have plenty of space for more seats and hope that more people from the new community will soon be joining us. All through the service it was hard to believe that this was really happening after many years of waiting and planning for this day!

Our Father God really does do immeasurably more than we can ever hope for or imagine.

Getting closer

Today was almost the last move. We moved everything from the bottom floor of the house that we hire for our church meetings in Magisterio to the church office next door to the new church building in Ttio. This week we hope that the windows and doors will be finished since the plan is to move most things next door this weekend to have our first service in the new building on Sunday. There is still much to be done at the new site and we will be moving in with it half finished but never the less we are all very excited and so grateful that El Puente Iglesia has a place to call its own.
