Esperanza Outreach

 

TRAM has been reaching out to a neighboring village, Esperanza, with a mobile medical clinic led by Dr. Emelio Caldera.  He has led an initiative to plant the seeds of our marvelous message of hope via evangelistic meetings held three nights a week, Thursday through Sabbath.

 

Over two months ago we rode our bicycles to Esperanza and with the help of members from Wisconsin we cleared overgrown church property.  (Note the concrete foundation columns already in place.)

Using bamboo we erected a temporary shelter covered with plastic which we reused from the Maranatha project. Using the duce we transported 50 blocks and boards which we used for seating.   Dr. Caldera has presented colorful power point presentations using the mission’s generator and sound system, the Lord has certainly blessed.

  
Interest has been strong as shown by attendance which has averaged 50-60 nightly with peak attendance 120.  Only one Adventist family currently lives in this village; these messages were new to all except for the small TRAM team and this family.   As these meetings come to a close precious decisions for Jesus are taking root.  Please pray especially for two ladies who are taking a stand under great opposition. 

For those unfamiliar with the Spanish language, Esperanza means "Hope".  We have great hope and plans for this village. Lumber for framing a permanent church structure is on order with expected delivery this coming week and the zinc roof materials are on hand.   Construction will begin as soon as the lumber arrives; pray for these dear ones as we move forward in establishing a new church home. We do have a current need for funding for the siding; donations may be sent to TRAM.
