A Growing Church

God is bringing tremendous spiritual increase to the Ayllu iglesia de Cristo, or Ayllu church of Christ. On our survey trip, we arrived in Cusco just one week after over 1,400 locals were treated during the team’s annual medical mission campaign, and the team and church were already busy following up with all of the new contacts made during the campaign. As a result of these efforts and the ongoing growth of the congregation, there were 87 present at worship on the first Sunday of our trip and 84 for the second Sunday. The church averaged 82 in attendance over the month of March, the highest monthly average since the congregation was established. Also, both parents of one of our church members were baptized into Christ recently, and after meeting with the team, many more are getting closer to the point of spiritual obedience as they continue in personal Bible studies with Gary and Barton. It is always the team’s goal to disciple, or be highly involved in the lives of, newly baptized Christians as we all grow closer in our walk with God.
