MARCH 20l2-JUNE 2012


 


Dear Fellow Laborers,


I apologize for the delay in this report. The spring months have quickly passed.


I have worked long hours at my secular job, have had several members in and out of the hospital, and have been busy with the Lord's work. .


We rejoice in God's blessings for these four months. Victory Baptist Church was blessed with several first time visitors, some returning, others not. We rejoice in the great things God has done in adding 19 precious members to our church family- 1 by baptism, 1 by statement of faith, and 17 by transfer of letter from churches of like faith. God has blessed the congregation with a sweet spirit and desire to bring honor and glory to God as we worship and serve Him together. We are truly experiencing I Cor. 3:9, "We are laborers together with God." The church is busy using their God given talents in serving in different capacities to spread the gospel of Christ. We continue to pray for the lost that regularly attend our services.


In March, we were blessed to hold revival services, with Pastor Larry Ellis, Richland Baptist Church, Livermore, KY, as our guest evangelist. The services were well attended and we were blessed, challenged, uplifted, and encouraged by the preaching of God's Word and the sweet fellowship with Bro. & Sister Ellis.


We were blessed to have a baptismal service for a 20 year old young man. It has been a joy to see him growing in the Lord and desiring to serve Him through the Church. We were also blessed to observe the ordinance of the Lord's Supper in June. We have visited the sick, passed out tracts in the community, shared the Gospel with the lost, and encouraged those going through trials.


By faith and trust in the Lord to provide, the Victory Baptist Church, has voted to increase my salary, to provide for their pastor's family. They believe God will bless their giving and faithfulness. Your love, prayers, and financial support have helped Debbie and I to serve many people in more than one mission work or church work over these past years. Souls have been saved, baptized, and added to the Lord's Church. Christ has been taught, exhalted, worshipped, trusted, and shared. You all were and are a part of this. We praise God for you and your faithfulness to the Lord and your willingness to help not only missionaries, but also small churches that are not able to fully support their Pastor. Because of this wonderful blessing from our Church family, Debbie and I want to say we are so thankful for you. and that you no longer need to financially support us. This will enable you to help another missionary as God leads.


We ask for your continued prayers as we keep laboring for the Lord, seek to reach souls and to touch lives with the Gospel of Christ in the Russellville community. We will soon outgrow the building we presently rent as it is. We ask you to pray for us as we seek the Lord's will for the building/property He wants for us and provide accordingly as we take this step of faith. This is a good "problem" to have and we are excited to see what God has in store!


We thank you from the bottom of our hearts. May God continue to bless your field of service. Philemon 7, "For we have great joy and consolation in thy love, because the bowels of the saints are refreshed by thee, Brother.”


Bro. Peter Santisteban
