Dear Praying Friends,
We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from sunny Argentina. We are entering into our Summer months here and have already had some days reaching 100 degrees. Every year it’s warm but it still is hard to get used to at the beginning of the season. We still celebrate Jesus and His coming to earth so that we could have Salvation and that is truly the reason of Christmas. Our girls are very excited about Christmas and are counting down the days. We are very thankful for every church that sent us a Christmas offering and that supports us monthly. We know this year has been a unique year for everyone and we don’t take your support lightly. Thank you for your love for the Lord and your love for missions work around the world.
On the last Sunday in November, we were able to have a baptism service by the river. Because of all the restrictions of having too many people in a building, we decided to go to the river having an outside service. It was a blessed day! Three of the new believers followed the Lord in believers baptism. Gonzalo, Fabrizio and Debora got baptized that day. What a blessing to see these new believers identify with Christ and take this step of obedience! All three are doing Bible studies and are growing in their Christian life. Several family members came out to support those that were being baptized and had the opportunity to hear a clear presentation of the Gospel. After the service, Fabrizio’s stepdad, Oscar, asked how he could receive Christ so he could follow Jesus and be baptized. David had the opportunity to lead him to the Lord the following week. Glory to God!
We have been able to resume Sunday morning services in the building and what a blessing it has been to sing together and worship the Lord as a church. Some of our Bible studies we have started back up having in person as well. We still have a Sunday night Facebook Live and we are seeing the Lord work through that as some family members watch who have never come to church. Please pray for us to have wisdom moving forward into this New Year and what the Lord would have for us as a church family.
Finally, please pray for fellow laborers here in Cordoba, Argentina. We can truly say, “The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few;” Thank you so much for all that you do for missions and the cause of Christ down here in Argentina! God bless you!
