This past Sunday, we celebrated the fifth anniversary of services being conducted in Samora Correia. Services began in a rented conference room in a local hotel. For the past couple years, we’ve met in the Bestseller bookstore.
Our celebration included our normal worship service plus a 20-minute video history of the church plant. After the service, we had a great fellowship dinner and birthday cake. Yes, we sang happy birthday to the church. (That confused the kids for a minute or two.)
Please pray for our church plant. One of the things that became obvious to me while watching the video is that the founding families have suffered greatly during these past five years. Please pray that God will redeem their pain and grow the church.
