A fellow missionary’s church hosted a disciple-making conference from September 11-13. We participated whole-heartedly, understanding that through discipleship is how we strengthen believers to accomplish the Great Commission. We were challenged and encouraged to make discipleship the foundation of our church’s ministries, and have already implemented changes to get everyone involved so that the each individual member is growing, as Colossians 2:7 states…” Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith…” together with the church body, to be true disciples of Jesus Christ. Please pray that the whole church will catch the Biblical vision of making disciples.
First Missions Team
We were privileged to have our first missions team come in October. Hickory Ridge Baptist Church, from Springfield, MO has been a supporter for about four years, and we thank God for their support, and also for the blessing that they were to us during the days they were with us. They split the time between us and a fellow missionary, and they worked hard to help us with a few projects we had to do at church and also to hand out tracts. We thoroughly enjoyed our time with them! Thank you for being a blessing to us and our church family in the time you were here!
Happy Mother’s Day
Argentina is one of the only countries that celebrates Mother’s Day in October. We wanted to celebrate with a special event that would also be our first ladies’ event! Our ladies decided on a “princess theme” (Daughters of the King). We had fun planning it together, and putting it all into place. Rachelle was thrilled at the participation we had in planning, preparing, decorating. She gave the devotional, and there were 5 visitors, and all those who attended said they enjoyed their time and were blessed by it all.
