A Membership Milestone

Behold, how good and pleasant it is when brothers dwell in unity! It is like the precious oil on the head, running down on the beard, on the beard of Aaron, running down on the collar of his robes!
Psalm 133:1-2

On Wednesday night we had a great celebration as the church instituted membership.  All the members gathered together as a big, united family with the same mind and spirit.  We spoke about the purpose of membership and then we celebrated the Lord's Supper together.  After we all stood and read the church covenant together, we signed it as the affirmation of our dedication to live as Christians together.  After we closed with a prayer, we ate some good food and drank coffee together in sweet fellowship.

Each member received a Bible and a copy of the constitution.  The members will review the constitution during the next month and then we will have another special meeting to adopt the constitution.  We are so excited and it seem the members are so joyfully united, more than ever before.

Because of this, we know that we must not put our guard down because the enemy is prowling around to devour the little flock.  Please continue to pray for us.

Here are a few pictures of this milestone for our church in Cusco.
