What a blessing it is to see the results of much labor. There was our time spent on deputation raising the funds to come to Chile. After arriving, we got settled in and began learning Spanish and getting accustomed to the culture. After this time we started searching for a church building to get started in. God gave us a good location and we had our first service on October the 24th, 2010. Almost four months after our first service this February, we saw our first soul saved. His name in Henry and he is 14 years old. I would ask that you pray for him. Now that he knows Christ as his personal Saviour, it is so important that he grows in the Lord. Also in February, we had two ladies that trusted Jesus as their Saviour. Their names are Cosette and Eugenia. As with Henry, they need to grow in the grace and in the knowledge of Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. We praise the Lord for the fruit that we have seen.
At the end of January and the first of February, about seven churches participated in an annual youth camp. The focus was for the youth to take the maximum risk in their Christian walk. Youth are challenged to do many things in their life and it’s not all bad things. The unfortunate thing is that they are not usually challenged to do much for their Lord. Pray for these young people to step out and do something for God. I had one young boy named Ivan who came up and hugged my neck one night after service because he became a child of the King. What a blessing seeing God do a work in their hearts! Continue to pray for the next generation.
We thank God that our church is steadily growing. We are starting to see people who are being faithful to the house of God. This has been a true blessing. I Corinthians 3:5-7 “5 Who then is Paul, and who is Apollos, but ministers by whom ye believed, even as the Lord gave to every man? 6 I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase. 7 So then neither is he that planteth any thing, neither he that watereth; but God that giveth the increase.” We thank God that He gives the increase.
Sincerely Yours In Christ,
Chris and Stephanie McBryar

On December the 19th in the morning service, we had our English class graduation. We are so thankful for those that came to the English class. We had a great time teaching English of course, but we also had a great opportunity to share the Word of God. Each week the students had a Bible verse to memorize. Also, they were able to hear the Word of God preached before we had the graduation that morning. We are trusting in God’s Word to do a work in their hearts. During this time, we really got to build some relationships with the people in the neighborhood. This was one of our main goals. Keep praying for the people in this picture that graduated and even others that had come for some of the other classes. It is our prayer to see these people come to the Lord!
Special Christmas Service:
For the month of December Stephanie taught a series of lessons on the birth of Christ to the children. While she was doing this, she also taught them to play “Joy to the World” with hand bells. December the 19th in the evening we had a special Christmas service. During this time there was a special presentation where the children sang and played Joy to the World. We also had special songs by several people and preaching on the birth of Christ. We thank the Lord for the 43 people that came that night. It was a true blessing to see each person. After the service we had a great time of food and fellowship and were able to meet and talk to several visitors from around the church. Keep praying for the people in this part of Santiago, Chile. There are many religions in the area; this is exactly what they do not need, but what they do need is the Redeemer, Jesus Christ!
Special Gifts and Cards:
We want to thank each one that has sent us Christmas cards and extra offerings for Christmas. This is a real blessing to our family. We never take for granted the blessing that you are to our family.
