A New Year...

2008 Stats - 23 Baptisms, Average Monthly Attendance 122.

We enter the new year of 2009 with not only a new building but immediate growth as well. For reasons that can only be considered a God thing, our first month in the new building has generated and average weekly Sunday attendance of 161. We have been tracking our Wednesday and other midweek events. Including these it brings the number for a total attendance of 234. We began our new English Classes. We have shifted our timing to align with the local school system. We are running 104 students in 6 levels of classes with 20 or so more on a waiting list.

Also this month we have organized a councel for the church. There are 6 men that have agreed to serving in this capacity. It is very exciting to see the growth of not only those attending the church but also the infrastructure. Creating that much more of a stable church into the future.

God has also blessed us with advance notice of 16 teams that plan to come as our guest. In our budget preparation we calculated for about 240 people during this year. If everyone arrives as planned we will have 215 of our anticipated total.

This coming year is poised for incredible events. We are looking for God to show himself yet again.
