We started our mission conference yesterday with a wonderful service! We have a missionary from Peru preaching the conference. This is such an exciting time for our church. Last night we focused in on the need around the world. We currently support two missionaries as a church and our hoping to be able to support more in the coming year. We will continue the conference with a service tonight. During the service we will focus in on the need here in the country of Argentina. We will end the conference on Sunday where we will be focusing in on the need in the southern zone of Buenos Aires, where we are located. The need is great but the laborers are few. Pray with us that God raises up men in Argentina to advance the Gospel around the world!
Biggest Attendance Yet, Baptisms, and Upcoming Missions Conference
The ministry God has given us here is continuing to grow and we are very thankful for the opportunity to serve Him in Argentina. We had a wonderful October where we had our biggest attendance yet! We had 3 people baptized during one of the services, all 3 of which are in discipleship classes! Our Mother’s Day service (Mother’s Day was October 20) was a big success. We were blessed to have several mothers and their families who attended the service. We currently have two young men enrolled in our Bible college. Both men are growing and are involved in every service of our church. We are thankful for the way the Lord is working!
Our big event this month is our Mission Conference. Faith Baptist Church currently supports two missionaries (a young Argentine man who is a missionary to Burkina Faso and a Chilean family who are missionaries to Ecuador). We will be focussing on the need in Buenos Aires, the other provinces of Argentina as well as the other countries around the world.

Today is a very hot day here in Argentina. We are enjoying the springtime. Tonight we will have a spring bonfire for our youth meeting. We look forward to this special time and our youth group is excited as well! Argentina will elect a president on Sunday. This will almost certainly cause problems in the country. We are praying God uses this time to draw people to Him! We look forward to coming together on Sunday and praising our God and learning from His Word on Sunday. Although we do not know who the new president will be, we do know the King of Heaven!
This Sunday is Mother’s Day. Although it is different having Mother’s Day in October we believe it is a great opportunity to have a special service! For our church, everything starts tomorrow. We will have a special ladies fellowship on Saturday. These fellowships always are a blessing. Sunday morning we will have a Mother’s Day service. We have gifts for every mother who comes as well as a prize for one special mother! We have passed out many invitations and are praying for a big day! Pray this way with us.
Tonight we will have our youth meeting. The Lord is working in the hearts of several who are attending. We are hoping for a wonderful service where we can learn more about how to serve Jesus!
We have had a lot of rain lately but we should have a beautiful weekend. We are anticipating great things from our God!
