The Spanish Church in St. John's

CHURCH 

Then & Now  

The new building for the Spanish Church was dedicated in May of 2010 - one month after our family arrived here in Antigua. 

This structure was built with the help of teams from the States, including New Jersey, Penn-Del, and Potomac Districts.

The older building has become the Children's Ministries Center, and is also used for evening classes for the Bible school.

There are conference rooms still to be completed, in the back of the new building.  These will also be used for the Bible school which currently has an enrollment of 25 students, and is set to grow much more as we open it up to the larger community (ie, not just our own church) next semester.

The Spanish community here is experiencing real revival, and the time is ripe for the Lord to do great things.

 new laptop

Through your giving we were able to present the church with a new laptop computer.

This will serve as the computer for the church office which is still being set up in the rear part of the building.  We would love to bring teams in to help finish the rooms at the back of the church building (tiling, etc.) - - The upstairs conference room is where we envision much of the Bible classes and activities taking place, in addition to other forms of ministry.

 Haiti

Though a nation with plenty of problems of their own they still have the desire to reach out to their neighboring island in their time of need.

Emily

Emily was able to come for a visit before heading back to Bible college.  She ministered in Spanish several times while here - in worship, sharing her testimony, and in special music.

Additionally ~ 

The Pentecostal Assemblies of the West Indies also has their own website:

www.PAWIonline.org

"P.A.W.I." is the national church organization we're partnering with, in reaching out to the growing population of displaced latino immigrants in their territories. 

We will be overseeing the establishment of a Christian Day Care Center for the children, the starting-up of leadership training, and helping with church-planting in those north leeward islands of the West Indies.  We will be based in St. John's.

Please pray for us that we may bear fruit for God in these areas, and consider what you may be able to do in terms of monthly support.

Thank you and God bless!
