With many rules in place due to COVID, the Arbol de Vida EFC has been holding services in the unfinished sanctuary for the last 5 weeks! Even without electricity, air-conditioning, doors or windows it has been a major blessing because with physical distancing there is legally room for 90 people to attend instead of an 18-person limit in the former space we used for services. It has been very encouraging for many in the church family that had not been able to meet together to worship since March. There have even been new families attending that have been connecting through the online services!
Construction has carried on throughout the pandemic with local workers and church-members moving the project forward. We are in the home stretch now!
Breaking news! A donor has stepped up to match/double all donations made to the building project by December 31st up to $20,000!This is a great opportunity to make your year-end giving go twice as far! God has provided through the local church giving and partners from Canada and the USA to make this dream become reality DEBT FREE! What a testimony to what God’s people can do when we partner together!
Please take 4 minutes to watch the attached update video with Pastor Ariel González to see what has been accomplished during the pandemic! God has provided for a huge amount of work to be done even without teams coming from Canada!
If God is leading you to give to see this project finished, please see the following needs. Your prayers for God’s provision and safety for the workers are greatly appreciated!
