I got to go visit a pastor I just met this year from Camotan. He is from Honduras but has moved to Guatemala to pastor a church. When he got there, the church only had 19 members. He has been there 2 1/2 years and now the church has 100 members! That's awesome!! He has 8 kids and his wife works along side of him ministering to the village.
He has started working on closing in the church with adobe walls so the rain won't enter the church. He has started building depending totally on God. He had no money to start and has no money to finish but they are now over half way finished! They lack a little more wall and rafters and a little more tin for the roof. They are praying and trying to finish before the end of April with the rain comes hard! The walls need to be finished and covered in concrete stucco so the rain won't wash them away. You can see all of this in the pictures below. The members of the church are all pitching in and doing everything they can to finish the construction. There is a picture of the guys that are working hard. They have one guy who is the "contractor," who knows what he is doing, and he tells the other guys what to do and makes sure it is level and plumbed straight.
So I see how God speaks and fulfills His Words and promises to His people. They have asked us for help and we are praying for God's provision to flow to them, however He wants to do that.

We host training seminars for pastors, leaders, and youth from rural areas and we help supply the congregations with Biblical materials to minister to their communities.
