Story by Heidi Shoemaker
A small group, originally based in the Springfield Spanish church, met every week in private homes until they grew to about 14 baptized members. They then decided to plant the Vandalia church last December.
A strong vision of growth and a huge dependence upon prayer stabilized members. They started this project with a prayer program for 30 days, then decided to keep praying for 50 more days. After the 50 days, they decided to pray indefinitely every day at 5 a.m.
