During these two years this young couple has started a church which has an average attendance of 80 people, a drug rehabilitation center and a social center for homeless men. In addition to this they have sent a team from this new church to begin another church. The new church was started in January and now has about 18 people attending. In September they will send a new team to missionary training school and that team will be sent to another city in January 2009 to begin a new church.
