Randy and Alicia Clarke

A New Chapter of Ministry


To All our Friends & Family,

       On Feb 26 we were officially installed to pastor Iglesia Encuentro de Esperanza (Encounter Hope Church). The Lord has filled us with a love and joy that brings smiles, hugs and blessings each time we gather for worship or small group meetings. We are grateful for our young, creative Puerto Rican IW team members, Oscar & Charlotte Garcia, gifted musicians who lead worship and preach regularly. Their two daughters, Sara and Sofia, are a spark of energy and life in this older congregation.

       We have also continued a ministry of presence with our Jewish friends where we live in the Rambla. We have many spiritual conversations when we walk with them or share coffee or a meal. In March we celebrated the Jewish Festival of Purim with dinner and reading the book of Esther from the Bible with Diana, a Messianic Jew, who has been a close friend since we first served in Montevideo 18 years ago. Recently, we presented Christ in the Passover in the church, and on Friday, April 22, we hosted this same Messianic Seder at home to share Jesus with our other Jewish friends. Most of them were hearing for the first time how Jesus is the sinless, sacrificial Passover Lamb that died to pay the price for our sins so that we could be set free from slavery to sin.

       Each day we pray for the Lord to order our steps according to His Will, and He's given us meaningful opportunities to be present with our church members as well as our Jewish friends. Thank you for supporting and praying for us. We are so grateful for each of you! May the Risen Lord be with you and fill you with joy!

With our Love, Randy & Alicia

P.S. Thank you so much for contributing to the church renovation project! The kitchen looks so much better with new drywall, paint, refrigerator, cabinetry and serving cart. A beautiful conference table that had been in storage for about 10 years has been fixed and setup. The back patio has been cleared and we're working on ways to improve the acoustics. Now... onto the children's room makeover!
