After two Sundays here I thought I would give an update on the work. We have had 11 people at the English speaking congregation both Sundays, counting Dana and I. That is everybody with the exception of one brother who works 2 jobs, one of which is sometimes on Sunday. The Spanish speaking church did not meet the first Sunday, but last Sunday there were 6 of us, which is everybody.
With us here I'm confident the Spanish speaking group will be much more consistent--the brother who has done most of the preaching has to work a couple of Sundays a month, but I should always be there, so we will meet.
We also have 4 contacts to follow up with already--Christians who have fallen away. 3 of them were members at Dorado but live in our area so Caparra Terrace would not only be closer in distance but it time as well. Besides, it's in San Juan (the big city) not some little town on the outskirts--I know it shouldn't matter, but there is a psychological factor there. The other is from the Dom. Republic and just fell away because of the pressures of the everyday world. We also have the wives of two of the members who are good prospects--Arnaldo has already suggested that we need to come eat with them, so we can meet his wife, etc.
Please pray for us as we work here.
