Ron and Margaret Holmes joined the GMSA in 1979, having already served as missionaries in South America since 1962. ” Our ministry over the years was mainly church planting. This was started going door to door and inviting people to a Bible study in our homes. From there a group of people came to know the Lord and became a part of the church family.”
The Holmes were used of the Lord in Argentina to start the work in Monte Grande and Lomas, and had a part in the UCB churches in Ezeiza, Centenario, Temperley and Pasco. During their 23 years on the field with the GMSA, they were also involved in camp work, and the starting of a Bible Institute in Monte Grande, which serves the churches of the greater Buenos Aires area.
Margaret retired in 2002, three years after her husband Ronald went home to be with the Lord. She met and married retired missionary Art Gualtieri in 2006, and they continue to be a part of the ministry.
