Thanks to God for a Material Blessing

A generous donor gave this minivan to the mission. It will help furloughing missionaries move about the States as they report to their churches. We are grateful to the Lord for His provision.

From Uruguay: Duarte Family Uruguay

The Duarte family recently published their October news and prayer letter. It is available here. Among other things, they write:

Last Sunday we ended Bible and Missions month with an International Banquet. This has become a great celebration to wrap up Missions Emphasis Month and also an outreach ministry to unsaved family and friends.  The believers prepared delicious dishes from countries around the world.  We had a wonderful time of fellowship; more than 70 people came; the plan of salvation was clearly preached, and one man surrendered his life to the Lord for salvation. Praise the Lord!  Please pray for the many other visitors who heard the Gospel.

Please contact the Duarte family through their home page here if you would like to participate in their ministry.

 

Chivilcoy Church Building Program, Take 5

As you can see from the pictures below, there has been a beautiful transformation in our church auditorium since our last update!  Thank you for praying with us about the construction of the permanent church building in Chivilcoy.  A generous donor gave the rock that is around the baptistery and the front of the platform.
