With the participation of all the Spanish churches in the greater Little Rock area, an evangelistic series took place from July 14-21, 2012. The combined effort was intentional because the main purpose was to support the formation of a new church plant. The amazing results were immediately felt and seen. Over ninety visitors came to the meetings and over twenty were baptized. Pastor Enrique Ortiz from the Dominican Republic was the invited guest evangelist. His dynamic presentations were vital in having a successful evangelistic campaign. (Newsletter, 2012). On May 25, 2013, the group was organized as the South Little Rock Spanish SDA Company (Newsletter, 2013).
