Morrell Updates on Camp, Church, Argentina Field

Missionary James Morrell reports:


Tomorrow starts a three-day nen’s retreat. Pray that many will be able to come and for God’s will to be accomplished in the hearts of the men in attendance.

May 26-June 8 we will host a work team from the United Kingdom. Please pray for the men and women as they prepare to come and for an effective time of work while they are here. We plan to continue working on the pool and the second cabin. Many of those coming are skilled craftsmen.


The Gibbons have been faithfully serving the Lord here in Chivilcoy and have seen God build His church from the very beginning. The time has come for the church to support its own pastor and so the Gibbons are moving on to Florida where Tom will now be the director for the mission. The new pastor in Chivilcoy will be David Diaz from Chile. David and Carolina will be moving to Chivilcoy on June 2. Please pray for the transitions of these two families as they move into new ministry and for the Chivilcoy church as they adjust to a new pastor.

New Role in Mission Leadership

As Tom has become the director for the mission, James has become the new Argentine field director. Please pray for James as he learns his new role and wisdom to lead as we seek to plant more churches in Argentina. Please pray for more missionaries to answer God’s call to help build His church in Argentina. Our next targeted city is Bragado which is about 40 minutes SW of Chivilcoy.  Veteran missionaries Colby and Lesa Holmes Lord willing will be returning to Argentina in July to begin this work along with Lois Kenney and Lois McAllister. Please pray for another ministry couple to join them and for the hearts of people to be prepared to hear God’s Good News!
