Welcoming new members!

In April we were excited to vote in our first new members since the organization of our church.  Each of these (plus one more who is not pictured) have professed faith in Jesus´finished work on the cross and have been baptized.  They have also completed a 4-week membership class.  We are so thankful to see how God is at work in the hearts of each of these dear people and we are excited to see how God will be using them here in the future. 

Another couple and their 11 year old son came to James recently wanting to be baptized.  We had been praying for this for several months and are thrilled to see how God is transforming their hearts and drawing them to HIM!

Pray for our adolescent group as they seem to be drawn away from the Lord right now.    We see the spiritual battle going on all around and are encouraged by the words of Isaiah 30.15
"...You will be delievered by returning and resting; your strength will lie in quiet confidence..." and Psalm 46.10  "...Be still and KNOW that I am GOD..."
