Stewards in Coquimbo

Curtis and Diane Steward are ministering in Coquimbo Chile in a local church there. Diane has the opportunity to teach the women in the church in weekly Bible studies, and Curtis is on the leadership team. They ask prayer for:

  • The younger women in the church as they raise small children.
  • For the Tuesday and Wednesday Bible studies.
  • For the leadership team of the church.
  • For the new kids’ club called CounterCurrent.
  • For the need of a permanent church home. The rental property is great, but it is only temporary.
  • End-of-year outreach activities, including a concert and handing out tracts at the local fair.

Thank you for supporting these servants of the Lord in prayer!

UCB Monteverde Anniversary and Church Plant

The Monteverde church of the UCB fellowship celebrated its 11th anniversary on Sunday November 4. The special meeting was held at the Pirque camp near Santiago, Chile. Founding missionary pastor, Jonny Rea, was the speaker. Jonny and his family were able to fly over from N. Ireland to attend and participate in the church anniversary weekend. Pictured on the right below is Pastor Luis Cordero, who shepherds the church now.

The Monteverde church enjoyed a buffet lunch on the campgrounds in the afternoon.

In the afternoon, the new “El Principal” church plant (a plant of the Monteverde church) held its 9th Sunday afternoon service. The chapel has been recently renovated. It is pictured below, in its location on the Pirque Bible Camp. The surrounding community is growing and a local church is needed in the area.

Work Team at Chivilcoy Camp, Argentina

People love coming to serve the Lord in the construction of our camp facilities, cooking, and cleaning. They work for the Lord and the furtherance of the Gospel in every bit of energy expended while here. It’s also a blessing to them to participate in our Sunday services and special men’s and ladies meetings while here. We are so thankful for them and their work as they are a blessing to us and to our congregation as well! Thank the Lord for those who are willing to sacrifice and serve the Lord in this way!

UNO Youth Retreat

The UNO National Youth Retreat was held recently at Pirque. There were approximately 100 on camp: 75 campers and 25 staff and retreat speakers. Former GMSA church planter, Jonny Rea, was the main speaker for the youth retreat.

The youth retreat had several workshops each day that focused on leadership, counseling, discipleship and missions.

Please pray with us for these young people!

Pennsylvania Work Team November 2018

Pastors Bill Park and Bill Muller led a work-team from Pennsylvania at Camp Pirque, near Santiago, Chile. They worked on a cabin on the camp site, among a number of other projects. They are pictured above in front of the soccer field we have previously shown in this blog.

The team will now make their way back to the US from Chile. We are grateful for these ones who labored at the camp in Pirque, Chile, and for another group (some of the same people) who worked at the camp in Chivilcoy, Argentina.
