Two years ago, on 13th March 2016, a new Church plant in Jocotenango on the outskirts of Antigua, Guatemala opened its doors, with Pastor Steve McDaniel leading worship.
Around 80 people attended that Church service, many of whom had previously attended the Jocotenango feeding program as children – evidence of the lasting impact that the programs in Guatemala are having on the youngsters who attend each week. The following Sunday, 13 people were prayed into membership of the church and 3 new people gave their lives to the Lord.
Over the last two years the Lord has been building His Church in Jocotenango! Last month the Lord put it on Pastor Steve’s heart to officially ordain five of the leaders of the Church as Deacons, at a special service before the whole congregation.
This last weekend the Church has held its 2nd Anniversary celebrations – cake and all! We were delighted to have Pastor Buford Lipscomb (Apostolic Leader of Liberty Network International and International Director of Living Water Adopt A Child) and his wife Anne sharing in the Church service, along with the pastors of all the other Liberty Network churches in Guatemala. It was a very special day and we are excited about what the Lord is doing through His Church in Jocotenango.
