Tornado in Chivilcoy

Monday night there was a tornado in the city of Chivilcoy where GMSA missionaries Tom & Debbie Gibbons, Lois Kenney, Lois McAllister serve.

They are OK, but electricity in the city is out as a result and communication is very limited.

Please pray for gospel opportunities in the midst of this weather disaster. Pray for those injured. Pray for electrical service for the water pumps in the city, and for the necessary repairs to the old roof over the church, the game gallery.

 

Uruguay Bible College Update

Back in July, we mentioned a team of men endeavoring to establish a new fundamental Bible college in Uruguay. There is a recent update on this project, from missionary Sergio Duarte, who writes:

“We thank the Lord and praise Him for the doors of opportunity He is opening to develop this college. You may recall that we prayed and talked about this possibility for some time. Now, it is becoming a reality like a good dream come true. We know that is only by God’s Grace and His perfect timing that this is being put together. In mid-November, we had a special meeting in one of the churches in Montevideo to promote it among young people and pastors from fundamental works. The response in attendance and in interest was great. There were close to 120 people.”

Please continue to pray for God to provide for this training ground for future gospel workers in Uruguay.

Thanks for Another Donation

A generous donor gifted a Ford Escort LX to the mission. It will get a little maintenance and soon be on the road serving our missionaries. Thanks to our God for His generous provision.
