Last Saturday evening we had a building dedication service. It was a great event that is the culmination of lots of work but the beginning of lots more. The building is awesome. When I visited South Brazil in 2015 the church was in the process of purchasing the land for this building. I can remember talking with the missionary about his dream for the building. I think that this building is different than his dream but it is still awesome.
The dedication really showed off how large the church building is. There was plenty of room to have 200+ seats for a service and then to also have enough room to have an after service hang out area. It was very encouraging to see people from 5+ churches attend the 8 pm Saturday night service. I was so encouraged to see all of excitement that the church body had at this dedication.
I am looking forward to all of the different ways that this building is going to be used. It is my prayer that the LORD would use this building for his glory and many opportunities for ministry would be facilitated through this building.
