March April 2016

Calling ALL Students!

March is the beginning of fall here in the southern hemisphere and it brings school with it! We had a wonderful summer filled with Christmas events and camps. Now, back to school schedules for all of us! Rachelle homeschools the children, and this year they are in 6th, 4th, and 2nd grades. We jokingly made Nicolas the school mascot. He obviously had no clue, but the older kids thought it was hilarious (see photo). As we adapt to our school routine, Ben is teaching in the Bible Seminary again and, starting in the middle of May, will also be making a weekly trip to downtown Buenos Aires to teach a preaching class to a group of men in a church there.

New school year, new grades!

Easter Family Retreat

Most people have the week or weekend before Easter off from school and work for a religious holiday. We headed northeast to Uruguay to participate in a church Easter retreat. Ben was the guest speaker. We enjoyed meeting several people and spending time with good friends and fellow missionaries. It was a wonderful week remembering Christ’s sacrifice for us, His resurrection power and our victorious walk in Him!

Planning

We continue seeking out where God will have us begin a new church. We are prayerfully exploring Gonzalez Catan, which is located half an hour from where we are now. It is one of the most populated areas of Buenos Aires, with very little Gospel witness. There are a couple of families from there who come every week to attend the church here in Isidro Casanova, and we are in the process of planning things with them so they will help us begin the work in their city. It is very exciting! However, we want to move to that area to be in a more central location and we are having a hard time finding a house to rent. Please pray we will find the right place, which God already has waiting for us.
