Enumclaw Members Travel to Chile

Church members in Enumclaw, Wash. experienced the thrill of mission work when they traveled to Domeyko, Chile, in July to work with Maranatha to build a church.

For the newly constructed church, the Enumclaw group purchased 70 folding chairs in addition to a satellite dish for the new church facility that's called "the nicest building in town."

In addition to construction, the team also participated in evangelistic meetings and health talks. Eight people were baptized as a result.

The meetings even changed the hearts of the team members. A highlight of the trip was when one of the team members came forward during the last night of evangelistic meetings and gave his heart to Christ. "I thought I was just going to help build a church and ski the Andes," he says. He couldn't explain why he went to the meetings.

Four youth, ages 14–17, particularly enjoyed building the church and playing with 54 children during Vacation Bible School.

Enumclaw members are supporting a Bible worker in Chile as preparations continue in Domeyko for more meetings. Since the Enumclaw missionaries left, four more people joined six other people who are studying the Bible in preparation for baptism.
