Cumberland, Iowa, is not what you would call a thriving metropolis. It is situated in western Iowa about 20 miles south of Interstate 80. First Baptist church dates back to 1884 and it has maintained a witness for Jesus Christ in this farming community and region. Pastor Mike and Dawn Martin have faithfully served in this small place for the past 10 years. What amazed Chris and Deb Hindal was the number of families and children. Chris said, “I thought it would be a small church with a handful of elderly people. Instead we found a church brimming with life.” Chris had the privilege of sharing the International Ministries with the church family on Sunday, August 26, 2012. Following the morning service the congregation gathered for a potluck dinner with delicious food as one might expect in a rural setting. Praise God for this light in a small place!
