Missions on the Mission Field
July is the middle of our cold, humid, rainy winter. However, amidst all the dreariness there is winter break! And anytime there is a break from school it is a perfect time to plan something for youth because they are generally sitting at home bored! So, our “mother church” hosted an annual youth conference, but with a misions theme this year, along with a missions conference for the whole church (and our church was invited to participate also). Both were very convicting and challenging, mainly in the areas of reaching the unreached indigenous groups. Please pray that many of those who were challenged would use their lives to help send the Gospel around the world! Everyone must be involved for it to happen!
Happy Children’s Day
Children’s Day is an important holiday here in Argentina. Even though our church is just starting out, we wanted to do something for the children in our church and community for this special day. Because of this we planned a festival. We didn’t know how many to expect, so we overplanned, and because of rainy, muddy streets we didn’t have as many children show up as we anticipated, but we were happy to see the 50+ kids and many parents also! The Gospel message was clearly given, and two young girls prayed to recieve Jesus as their Savior! Most of the children came on their own and did not know their addresses, so that posed a problem for following-up with their families, but we were able to visit the few families who did leave addresses, and one family has been coming faithfully since then! It was a blessing to see how our church family worked together to do everything.
Answers to Prayer!!!
Of the many people we pray for, two were saved in these past two months! The first one is Roxana, the aunt of Jazmin, who was the first person saved through our church’s ministry, but the second one was our son, Lucas, who realized he had never truly repented from his sins and trusted in Jesus for salvation, even though he did make a profession of faith a few years back. As parents we are thrilled that he recognized his need for assurance!
