We are the Henry family. We have been serving Jesus as missionaries in Argentina since 2016. My wife Leslie and I have four beautiful daughters who serve the Lord alongside us. We are planting churches and training men to advance the Gospel in Argentina and around the world. It is not always easy, but God has been with us every step of our journey! He is so good to us! This blog is designed to take you on the journey with us. We have posts ranging from quick updates, to unique cultural norms and mores, to thoughts on world evangelism, to our monthly prayer letters. Our blog is updated often, be sure to check back and go on this journey with us!
Tomorrow is an important day in Argentina, it is the day that they will elect their president. Voting is obligatory in Argentina, because of this we will not able to have our morning service tomorrow (according to law). With this in mind, we will have the service this evening. This is the third and final Election Day we have had in the past four months, it is an important moment in the nation’s history (inflation rates are over 120%, making Argentina the nation with the third highest inflation rate in the world). On top of that, the progressive views of LGBTQ+ have gained ground and are starting to be pushed more and more and taught in schools. This election may help determine how these issues continue. Even so, we know that Jesus is the answer to these issues! Please pray for this special service and for the election tomorrow!
We started our annual mission conference last night with Pastor Hernan Cortez of Berean Baptist Church in Berea. Pastor Hernan was a wonderful blessing, he told us how he was the product of missions. Pastor Hernan came to Argentina from Peru to try to find work, while here, missionary Jeffrey Bush led him to Jesus! Pastor Hernan preached to us on the importance of having compassion for others. We will continue the mission conference tonight and will conclude it on Sunday with our international lunch! Please pray for the mission conference!
We will also have a men’s meeting on Saturday, this is a wonderful time of fellowship and encouragement for the men of the church. We hope to also have some men visit for the first time! Please pray for the men’s meeting!
Thank you fro praying for us!
A Vision for the World
We had a wonderful Spiritual Growth Conference with Michael Long last month. I was encouraged, as were the other believers at Faith Baptist Church. Brother Long also brought a group with him for a mission trip, during the week, we saw six people saved! We were all encouraged by the group who served by song, by translating, by preaching and teaching! This month, the men training in the Bible College also took the lead by serving and guiding specific ministries in the church, including outreach, youth group, and teaching and preaching.
This month we will have our Mission Conference, when we focus on the need around the world. It is actually something we do each week, focusing in on a local county in greater Buenos Aires, a province in Argentina, and another country somewhere else in the world. Even so, Mission Conference is special. We will have a guest preacher from Beriso who will be preaching part of the conference. We will end the conference with our annual international lunch, with foods from around the world! Faith Baptist Church has come to love Mission Conference and we are grateful for how the Lord is using the church to reach others, not only in our area, but also in other countries around the world!

Today is a special day at Faith Baptist Church! The ladies of the church have a special conference today. They have been planning it since the beginning of the year. Other sister churches have been invited, and have brought many ladies to this special conference. It is exciting to see how the ladies at Faith Baptist Church have planned this event and how they are seeing others to make this conference a blessing. There are over 160 ladies in the church right now! Please pray with us, that God use each of the speakers, the music, and the testimonies, for His glory!
