An update of the Spanish Outreach Ministry, officially known as “El Pacto de Gracia”:

Rev. Valentin Alpuche continues to make an impact in the Chicago Heights area holding Sunday evening Bible Studies for about 20 people, as well as the other work involved in church planting.  There are 3 faithful families that come regularly. Sunday evening Bible studies are held at 5:00pm at the facility in Chicago Heights.  We are also very excited about a ministry opportunity that we have in a weekly Sunday Morning radio broadcast.  Rev. Alpuche is now on WCFJ, AM 1470 from 11:00am-12:00 noon on Sunday mornings presenting a Bible study, currently on Galatians.   This has been a great opportunity to share the gospel as well as promote the ministry.  Lastly, there is a newly launched website with information about the ministry at  Please visit the site to learn more.  As always, keep this mission effort in your prayers.  – Mission Committee
