Before going on furlough, we had missionary friends that have been on the field for multiple terms who told us it would be wise to take a quick trip back to the field to check on the church, encourage the leaders and the church family, and to try to take care of any problems that may have arisen during our absence.
Leslie and I arrived to Argentina yesterday morning to do just as our veteran missionary friends have counseled us. We have just over two weeks here and our time will be been filled with lots of many ministry opportunities. We started our annual “Spiritual Growth Conference”. It will continue tonight and will end on Sunday. We will be hosting a class during the following week for the church family. I will be teaching on biblical stewardship for the week. We also have a baby dedication service the next Sunday. So far we have two families who will be dedicating their children to raise them for Jesus.
There is so much to do and so much to be thankful for. Pray for us as we encourage the leadership in the church, teach Bible truths, and give counsel on how to continue to advance the gospel.
