Argentina has a population of over 42 million, 86% of which are Roman Catholic. Argentina has a great need for the gospel. We may be able to satisfy their material needs until they die, but then it is all for nought if they do not know Christ as their Savior.
Psalm 49:8 says
“For the redemption of their soul is precious, and it ceaseth forever:”
Our goals while in Argentina are threefold:
1) Reach the lost with the gospel of Christ
We began our ministry in the greater Mendoza, Argentina area. Mendoza province has a population of 1.8 million people. 1.1 million of those people can be found in the Mendoza capital metro area (where we will be). There is a desperate need of churches that preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ and sound doctrine. Currently, their are the only 2 Independent Baptist Churches with an organized soul winning program trying to reach these 1.1 million people. Iglesia Bautista de Cuyo is one of these churches.
2) Start and build local New Testament Baptist Churches
We want to plant and establish Local, Independent Baptist churches in Mendoza, Argentina and its surrounding area. We can fulfill the Great Commission one person at a time. The Lord has allowed us to plant 1 church and we are currently in the process of planting another work in Tunuyan with another missionary that is currently working alongside us until this new work is up and going. Our goal is to plant 2 more churches once we come back from furlough in 2020.
3) Train nationals to continue the work.
Our goal is to train the nationals to reach their own people. This can be done by one and one discipleship and/or establishing a Bible college to teach them sound doctrine from the Word of God. The Lord led us to start Grace Baptist Institute in May of 2018 to train the nationals that the Lord has allowed us to reach.
To this end, please pray with us that:
- God’s power upon our ministry
- For people to be saved
- In our traveling on furlough
- For the prayerful and financial support of the churches
- For a smooth transition back home in the States and once again upon our return to Argentina.
We hope that you will add us to your prayer list as we continue to disciple the converts and reach the lost in His name.
