FRC Mission Update
The mission board is thankful to God for the faithfulministry of Pastor Xicara. We sometimes wonder what the churches in
Cubulco would be like had this dear man not come at the Lord’s calling
. Hehas good rapport with the church members and gives good direction to theobreros. He is active in visiting the hospital and makes regular trips to the Aldeas. Plans are in place to elect consistories in a few Aldeas with thegoal of calling their own pastor. But in that culture they act slowly so it willlikely be a number of months before concrete action takes place. Pastor Xicara is strong on the Reformed expression of church life. In October hehad some well thought out presentations which were well attended. Checkout our web site for more: http://www.frcmissions.org/
