The Missions Team completed a ramp for an elderly lady who had spent the past few months in rehab for a broken hip. She needed access to her home in order to be released from rehab. Thanks to the men of the Association who give of their time for this ministry.
We continue holding our services on Thursday and Sunday from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. On Thursday, we have Bible class for children as well as for our adult members. On Sunday, we worship together and then we share a scripture from the Bible. We also have Bible class for children. We continue making phone calls and visiting our mission members at their homes regularly. We also visit people to invite them to attend service at the Mission. We continue visiting Association’s churches, mostly on Wednesday afternoon and Sunday morning. We share with them about our work at the Hispanic Mission and we ask them to pray for us, so the Lord will add more people to His church. This month we visited six churches. Ms. Emma Jean, from Beech Glen, continues to kindly assist us during Sunday services teaching Bible class to the Mission’s children. 82 persons attended service. The offerings gathered were a total of $216.00 dollars. They were delivered to the secretary at the Association Offices, Ms. Drusilla Moore. On the 9th, Mr. Martin Arroyo and Mrs. Consuelo Herrera were invited to attend service at the Mission. We visited them at their home. On the 16th we picked up Mrs. Consuelo Banegas to attend service. We drove her to her house afterwards. Mr. Ricardo Mendez was invited to join us at the Mission. He received a brochure. We met him at the 5 de Mayo restaurant. On the 25th, we gave three brochures at Northview Park. Hopefully we will have more people visiting us at the Mission soon. Thank you for supporting and praying for Northview Hispanic Mission. God bless you. Sincerely, Pastor Job S. Birrueta Hispanic Minister
