From the Foothills to the Mountains
God has taken our family on an incredible journey to get us where we are today. We have been serving as mission interns at our home church, Cherry Street Baptist Church in Springfield Missouri under the ministry of Pastor Dennis Jennings.
We have learned so much by serving in various areas of the church, including children and youth ministries, music and the Reformers Unanimous addiction ministry. We have been overjoyed to reach and serve people with the changing power of Jesus Christ.
However, we realize we have been journeying through the foothills just before the mountains. God has been preparing us for BIGGER things.
This May, 2012, we will be going up for approval as Baptist Bible Fellowship missionaries to Argentina. We will begin our deputation trail, and Lord willing be on the field as career missionaries in 2014. Our goal is to establish local churches that will carry out the Great Commission and reach the people of Argentina for Christ.
This is such an awesome task we could never do it without His power and your prayers. We appreciate your intercession for our family as we prepare for the journey ahead. Please pray also that God would go before us and prepare the hearts of the Argentine people to receive the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
In Christ alone,
Ben for the Metzger Family
