April 2020 Missions Letter

Falling Back Into The Routine

In March we started the seminary back up from Summer break. We have three students who are training in the Bible College. We also had our annual Levi’s Banquet which was a huge blessing. Please be praying God continues to work in the hearts for those who attended. We have two men in particular that are on the cusp of really giving their all to Jesus. Dario is married and lives far away, but wants to serve Jesus. Eric is single and lives very close but because of his work schedule, he is not able to be at church faithfully. Both men want to serve Jesus, but are facing challenges that keep them from doing so. Pray that God works in them. 

This month we will have our Easter services. The week of Easter is a great opportunity to invite people to church. Some seem more “open” during the Easter weekend. We will also have our Missions Director, Jeffrey Bush and Mission Board President, Austin Gardner with us at the end of the month. They will be preaching in the services and teaching in Bible College. This will be a special blessing for our church and other like-minded churches around the area. 

Serving Together,

Patrick, Leslie, Lily, Piper, Ivy, and Isla Henry

Quick Update: The Quarantine Continues

I type this blog post from my home where I have been since March 20. We are under a national quarantine. Only one person per family is allowed to leave and that is only to got to a local store or pharmacy. The military police are out and stopping people to confirm where they live and where they are going. Over 8,000 people have been arrested during this quarantine for breaking the quarantine rules.

Although we are not allowed to hold services that does not stop us from filming are three services per week and sharing devotional thoughts each day. We are also in contact with members and faithful attenders of our church during the week. Two of the young men training for the ministry are a part of each filmed service and are reaching out to the church family as well.

At the posting of this update, the quarantine is scheduled to end on Wednesday, but the news is reporting that President Fernandez will be extending the quarantine, but nothing is official yet. Thank you for praying for us.

Quick Update: Quarantined

Last Sunday was our annual “Levi’s Banquet”. We had a wonderful service with over 60 people in attendance! We  shared the Gospel with many visitors! We had a fellowship afterwards, the Lord blessed and it was a great day!

Last night we had a wonderful mid-week service. We took a part of the service and dedicated it to what the Bible says about faith and fear. While we were in the service the President of Argentina announced that a mandatory quarantine would begin at midnight. We ended the service only to find out that it would be our last service of the month. The quarantine is enforced by the military police. Everyone must stay in there homes with only a few exceptions. As I publish this update, I am sitting on our couch at our home. I would usually be at our weekly Friday night youth night. Our services will be broadcasted online on Sunday. We are also sending out daily messages to our people. This is not exactly what we hoped for, but because of the threat of the Coronavirus it is the way we must do ministry for the rest of the month. Please be praying for Argentina and Faith Baptist Church. This is a great opportunity for us to show our faith to those who are living in fear.
