Experiencing a 6th Year Celebration!
One of the churches here in La Plata celebrated their 6th year anniversary! Iglesia Bautista Berea (Berea Baptist Church) was started by a missionary friend along with Hernan, a man he trained. Pastor Hernan has been the Pastor of the church from the beginning. I was able to attend the anniversary service in August. I heard the testimonies of brothers and sisters in Christ who experienced God’s love in their lives. I saw a short video of how things all started in that neighborhood. I saw how things have grown considerably in the past 6 years. It was a blessing to see and an encouragement to know that we will be training men like Hernan and planting churches just like Berea. We are honored to be here in Argentina to carry out God’s great work!
What is Dia de los Niños?
I remember asking my parents why there is a Mother’s Day and Father’s Day but there is no “Kid’s Day” when I was a child. My parents would respond, “Everyday is kid’s day.” Well, in Argentina, there is a “Kid’s Day”, and we experienced it in August. Our children had a great day, but more than that I saw how the church we are going to while in language school (Iglesia Bautista El Faro) used this as an opportunity to invite friends to a “kermesse” (carnival) in celebration of Dia de los Niños (Kid’s Day). It was a great day for the church!
