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.

In addition to thanking the Lord for this progress, please pray for the success of work teams leaving the U.S. on October 2, intending to serve all month in an effort to develop two Bible camps.

 

Chivilcoy Church Building Program, Take 2

Here are some pictures of the first Sunday in the “new” auditorium.  They are working hard on stuccos, with just the wall behind the pulpit remaining.  Praise the Lord for His provision!!  We’re praying for what’s needed for labor and glue to lay the floor.  The church family is very enthused!

The walls came tumbling down! These temporary walls have been home to our church family for the last 10 years. Today they were taken down to reveal the larger room that has been being worked on around this one – that will hopefully soon be the finished new auditorium.

Short Term Ministry in Uruguay

We want to wish a hearty welcome to Stephen Golden, who travels on Monday to Uruguay for eight months of ministry. Please pray for Stephen and what God has for him.

Part of Stephen’s testimony is this: “God’s grace is very evident in my life and I cannot thank Him enough for what He has done for me. I am thankful for the grace in which I stand and for the opportunity I have to serve Christ with my life.”
