Terry and Carol Thompson – Church Planting in Chile, General Director Emeritus

The Lord led Terry to serve in Chile for a year with GMSA in December 1970. Carol joined the team in 1973 and we married on July 14th and arrived in Chile for our first term in December. The first two terms were primarily serving in the Chiloe Islands with a boat ministry, tent evangelism and establishing local churches. Our third and fourth terms involved establishing a local church in Santiago – a city of six million souls – and field leadership. The Lord led us into directing the Mission from the Ft. Lauderdale headquarters in January 1994. The Mission has graciously allowed us, at various times, to replace certain missionaries while they furlough, giving us a much needed update of what field ministry is like for our missionaries.

In early 2018, we retired from the general director ministry

We are currently assigned to establish a reproducing local church in the city of Angol, Chile, population 51,000 souls. We are expecting the Lord Jesus Christ to build His Church so that successive generations in Angol will hear the Good News of the Gospel and the truth of God’s Word preached until our Lord returns.

Prayer Requests: 1. Wisdom to lead and encourage others. 2. Souls to be saved (the Lord is glorified and the missionaries are encouraged). 3. New missionaries for the fields and new board members for the homelands. 4. Our three children and their families serving in Chile.
