In Anapra, the mission we call Iglesia de la Santa Biblia has undergone a transformation. It is definitely an example of a time when something must get worse before it can get better. The two-story, red building that has for twenty years housed meals & worship services was taken down last summer when it became clear that the dimensions of the buildings and magnitude of repairs that were required called for a complete rebuild.
Progress is being made toward reconstruction which will take place in several phases. Volunteers from the mission community itself worked painstakingly in the demolition stage. With the help of Faith in Christ Lutheran Church of Ham Lake, MN, designs are being drafted for the new buildings.
YLM continues to provide meals and Bible classes for children as well as Adult Bible study and worship services at the beloved mission site that serves many children. The summer months also provide the opportunity to gather children together for Vacation Bible School, led by servant event groups from churches in the United States.
