(A new House of the Lord!)
Saturday, after a week of non-stop work and preparation, we had our official "open house" service. Many folks from other baptist churches in neighboring cities made the journey to see our new location and to celebrate with us and to be apart of the dedication.
We had to borrow extra chairs, as we were expecting maybe 80 folks to be there. Well, about 115 showed up! It was a packed place! I pray that the entire city could hear us as we sang and worshiped together!!
Praying, thanking God for His provisions and answering our prayers

We thank the Lord for His provisions and for His blessings on the ministry here in Barcelos, Portugal. We are truly blessed. Thank you for your prayers, support and special offerings that helped to make this new location a fantastic meeting place for His people.
