Quick Update: New Opportunities

One of the great things about serving Jesus is witnessing Jesus work in the lives of others. We have two young men who were attending the church before the quarantine. Neither of the two were very faithful. God has worked in their hearts during the quarantine. I am able to talk with them 2-3 times per week and I am watching God work in them. Both are becoming faithful. Both are growing, both want to serve Jesus! I am watching both step out and serve, even during these time when we cannot have services. While some are discouraged, others are growing in Jesus! Please pray all those who we have been able to have an influence in their lives. I believe Satan is attacking and I believe God is working!

The Quarantine

We are still in quarantine, there are all kinds of rumors ranging from the country opening up in October to perhaps the first part of 2021. In quarantine or out, we are continuing to serve Jesus!

Blessings in a Quarantine

The quarantine continues and God continues to bless us! We have our three weekly online services (via Facebook and Youtube), our weekly youth Zoom meeting, and our bi-weekly church-wide Zoom meeting. We are so thankful for each of these opportunities. We are hoping to be able to resume the small prayer gatherings with a few of the youth. We are continuing to serve through the quarantine. 

Matías, one of the men training for the ministry, will be marrying Mica, a young lady from the church. This is the first relationship that God has joined together as a result of our church! This has been such an encouraging thing to see come together before our eyes! Please pray for Matías and Mica as they begin their lives as a married couple, and they serve Jesus together!

We do not know when the quarantine will end, but we are praying that we will be able to have some sort of in person service this month! Thank you for praying for us and the ministry God has given us. 

Serving Together,

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

Quick Update: A Video of the Gospel

The quarantine continues and so does the ministry. We have our normal services this weekend, beginning with our Friday night youth service via Zoom. Thank you for praying for the ministry God is building. God is continuing to bless. I share with you a great example.

A few weeks ago I had permission (from the government) to visit families in the church. Leslie and I went to almost every family with homemade goodies to a time to encourage and pray with them. We stopped by Leandro’s house. Leandro is a young Christian who is growing and wants to share his faith! He received us into his home and was grateful we stopped by. During the time together, he expressed to me that he wanted to make a video explaining the Gospel to his friends. It would be a way that they might sit down and listen to him. He asked me that when he completes the video, that I would look at it and give him advice. Yesterday he finished the video and sent it to me this morning. The video is 1 hour 15 minutes long! I had the privilege to listen to him go from verse to verse to explain who Jesus is, our spiritual state without Jesus, what Jesus did for us, and how to be saved.

This is such an encouragement to see the desire and the effort that Leandro has. Even though we are not able to have any type of services where we can meet, Christians like Leandro are serving Jesus! Pray that God uses Leandro to further His Kingdom as well as others in the church.

A Continued Quarantine and a Stronger Ministry

The quarantine continues and so does the ministry. God is at work and we are so blessed to see it! At the end of June the president of Argentina announced a stricter quarantine for Buenos Aires, where we live. We had permission to go to the church to pray with individuals, but not to have any sort of service. Unfortunately, we lost our permission at the beginning of July, but a few weeks later, the governor started a less strict phase of the quarantine, so hopefully we will be able to do more soon! The Wednesday prayer time at the church had to stop, but this has not stop God from working. I share with you two stories. 

A young lady in our church has been growing by leaps and bounds. She is reading through the Bible for the first time. In July she let us know that she was able to witness to her uncle for the first time. We have taught something we call “the hand”, which include 5 Bible verses that teach  how to be saved. She was so excited to be able to share her faith!

Matías and Brian are training for the ministry. Despite the quarantine they are studying and preaching in some capacity three times per week. It is a joy to see the growth these two young men are experiencing. God is at work, even during this quarantine. We don’t know when this will end, but either way we believe God will continue to bless all that is going on. 

Serving Together,

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