September Church Update

Time is flying and I cannot believe September has already passed us by!  
Here is a quick update of what's happening at IBR...

 This year James has been investing in developing leadership in the church and has been working with one man on expository preaching.  In September they preached through the book of Ruth together.  It was an excellent series for all of us.  Seeing God's providence at work in the book of Ruth strengthened us as a body and I would say our preachers as well!

 September is a month of special birthdays.  Rafael and Daniel celebrate birthdays  one week apart and so we always celebrate together.  This year the boys went bowling and then came home for some cupcakes!

Since the Ladies Retreat our women have have formed a Whats App group.  It has been so neat to see how God is using technology to draw our women to Him and each other.   Sharing devotional thoughts, prayer requests, blessings and burdens as well as laughs has been very special.  It is amazing to see how God is growing our group both spiritually and in numerically.

Pray for us as we are beginning a bi-weekly bible study in a small city 1 hour north of us.  We have 2 families who have been attending Sunday services with us for a few months who live there and we are pray that God will use this study to help strengthen them in the faith.
