A Home of Their Own
LITTLE ROCK, ARK. – The Little Rock Baseline Spanish Seventh-day Adventist Church has been renting space from a United Methodist Church in order to hold their Sabbath meetings, but sometimes it is hard to sandwich in any other special meetings. It can also be difficult to need to move everything before and after the Sabbath services in order to be out of the way for the other church’s Sunday services.
The church members have been saving money and praying for a home of their own since they became an official church in 2019. In March 2020, they found a building that would nicely fit their needs, but they only had enough money saved to cover about half of the down payment.
In March and throughout the rest of the year, the COVID-19 pandemic closed down the church, but the members didn’t close down. They kept adding to their church fund and praying that God would help them find a way to have a place of their own.
In December, they again contacted the real estate agent and found that the building they wanted was still available. It was a God thing! Between December 2020 and January 2021, they raised the rest of the funds needed to accomplish their goal and closed on their new church building. God has provided a miracle for the church!
Pray for this little church as they work to furnish their building and move into their new quarters. The Lord is good!
