The Evangelical Free Church of Berard and the EFC Church of Grand Riviere both celebrated their anniversaries in December and January.
From our business manager Patrick Francklin: December 16 was the 14th anniversary for the EFC in Berard. This is a very special day for members and leaders of this congregation. Special because they join together in the same fellowship to worship and thank God for multiple blessings during the year. A large worship service was organized for this occasion. Different churches and choirs were invited. The ceremony was especially marked by the outstanding performance of the Children's Choir. We bless the name of the Lord and give all the glory to Him!
In January the EFC in Grande Riviere celebrated their 9th anniversary. After spending nine years in a local building that we rented, we are finally in our own church building. Despite our limited economic resources and despite the construction not being finished yet we bless the name of the Lord to give us our own house of worship. More than 200 believers were attending our church on this occasion. We pray that the Lord can send more believers and money for the construction of our Church and we continue to pray for our visiting construction teams from the U.S.
