Antofagasta Missionary House Update

From David and Kristi Flinck: The missionary house in Antofagasta has recently experienced some improvements. Words and photos can’t communicate enough how grateful we are a recent donation by a family in Ohio to advance these projects. All of these projects make our home and church ministry more beautiful and useful for the ministry. More advances are planned so that the church work can go forward. Stay tuned!

Flooding at Camp Paysandu

Teen Camp is scheduled to start today here at the UCB Camp in Paysandu, Uruguay. If the Uruguay River continues at its current rate of rise, we’ll need to clear out the lowest cabin by afternoon. By evening we’ll need to clear the lodge. The good news is that the weather is sunny and nice as of 8:30am this morning local time. Pray that the ministry of the Word will go on despite the flooding.

2014 Annual General Meetings

We were grateful for the Lord’s leading in council and board meetings for the mission. Most of those who attended the meetings are pictured in the first photo. The second photo shows one of the evening testimony and preaching meetings.




Burkholder Update

Dan and Marg Burkholder write in their May/June 2014 update,

“We will soon be six months into our new assignment with the Gospel Mission of South America (GMSA). God has opened doors, and given us good contacts. Our itinerary is filling with opportunities firming up for the fall and winter. We are encouraged and blessed. In May we were at Gladstone Baptist, Mt. Salem Christian School, and Eastwood Baptist (St. Thomas); in June we will be at Calvary Bible (Smiths Falls) and Goshen Baptist (Tillsonburg); in July, Hartford, and Islington Baptist Churches; in August, Hepworth Baptist, and in September, Berean Baptist (London). Please pray for us (2 Thess. 3:1).”



Welcome to the Marshalls!

The Gospel Mission of South America U.S. Board has appointed Dathan & Allison Marshall to the field of Argentina for church planting and camp ministry. Join us in welcoming the Marshalls to the mission family. As they begin their pre-field ministry, please pray with them. You can contact them through their new home page.



Southern Cone Connection: June 2014

Dan and Liz Thompson write from southern Chile:

The main service in Liquiñe starts at two in the afternoon, therefore we have the opportunity to minister to shut-ins before the service. We have had the privilege to visit families who as first generation Christians were once pillars of the church. We leave early from the camp and travel an hour on dirt roads to spend a few hours sharing from God’s Word and singing hymns in the homes. We also love to hear how they came to Christ and served while their health and years permitted. After the visit, we head back to church and enjoy the fellowship with the rest of the members. This new area of ministry is an encouragement to the older generation in Liquiñe and also a great way to train up the new generation to minister to them.


It’s hard for us to believe that it has been three years since we have seen many of you. We are starting to plan our 2015 home assignment ministry. To make our time in the US more effective, we need your help. We will most likely land sometime in early March and will try to be back in Chile by the end of November 2015. This is how you can help:

  1. Pray we can find replacements during the 9 months we will be gone.
  2. Pray that we can schedule adequate time with each of our supporting churches and individual supporters.
  3. Pray for new church and individual support contacts.
  4. Pray for our children. They are excited, but it will be a different life than what they are used to here in Chile.
  5. Pray for God to use us as we seek to promote what He is doing through the camping ministry in Chile.

New Cabins Coming!

A critical piece for Camp Chivilcoy to become operational is the need for two large cabins to be built to house campers. We learned yesterday that this is starting to unfold. Tom & Debbie Gibbons wrote:

“The first two cabins arrived today!!!! Actually, just all the steel for the structures. But, we have had a very wet fall which has made doing earthwork impossible. Hopefully in mid-July we will be able to get started on that part of the cabins.”
