On March 15, 2020, Carlos & Harlet Fernandez had their first service at Liberty Baptist Church of Parral, our newest church plant. Just a week later, Chile would go into an over 8-month long quarantine.
One of the visitors at that first service in Parral was Elena, a Catholic professor at the local high school. When Chile went into lockdown, Harlet, Carlos’ wife, invited Elena to an online ladies’ book study on Biblical strength. At the end of the study, Elena told Harlet that she realized she was a sinner who needed a Savior. Harlet shared the gospel with her, and Elena put her faith in Jesus Christ. Soon after, Harlet started discipleship lessons with Elena, and she grew in her faith and knowledge of the Bible.
This past month, Elena shared the gospel with a young lady named Antonia and started discipleship lessons with her. This young Christian is already declaring the Word, teaching others, and reproducing herself! What an absolute joy it is to see God’s grace upon grace at work in Elena’s life!
