A Dream Filfilled Mattawa Spanish Church Organized

July 01, 2011 | Kathy Marson

The Mattawa (Wash.) Spanish Church began as a company in 2003 due in part to a dream given to Jose Luis Perez. He dreamed that a voice said, "You must tell the people that I am coming very soon." Perez was part of one of the original families that began meeting together in Mattawa.

Fulfilling this dream is what the Mattawa Spanish Church strives to do and now, as an organized church, they continue to be a light in Mattawa to tell the community about Jesus.

Bob Folkenberg Jr., Upper Columbia Conference president, says, "This was a momentous day for this congregation." And indeed it was, as Walter Pintos, UCC Hispanic ministries director, had the members sign the charter of the newly organized church, and Mirian Perez shared the history of the church.
