We hope all the mothers had a blessed Mother’s Day around the world. Here in Chile, we also celebrated Mother’s Day with a special Sunday morning service. We honored 10 mothers who joined us for the service. Out of the 10, six countries were represented: Chile, Ecuador, Peru, Venezuela, Colombia, USA. It’s amazing to see the diversity in our church and city. It makes me think about how amazing Heaven is.
Soon we will be thanking the Lord for six months of our new church plant, Love Baptist. God continues working in the hearts and lives of the people. Many are becoming more and more faithful to services and activities. Several are getting involved, serving in various aspects of the ministry. Some who have been discipled are now discipling others. We are constantly creating more ways to get every person involved in the church. In June, we will hold our first monthly workers’ meeting. We are very thankful to be a part of so much that God is doing here in Santiago.
Eleven men from our church attended the annual overnight Mens’ Retreat. There were around 90 men from 14 Chilean churches who took part. We heard challenging messages, as well as, enjoyed great food and fellowship. Missionary Jason Kenney and Hope Baptist Church did a wonderful job making it all happen.
I was able to spend four days in Argentina with my good friends, Patrick Henry and Jason King. Our pastor, Derik Lawrence, also made the trip from Georgia to preach the organization service of Faith Baptist Church in Buenos Aires. Patrick and his family started Faith a little over two years ago. The Lord has blessed their efforts with a good group of believers who love the Lord and are making an impact in their community. Many have been discipled and are serving in the church. They also have some young men who are training for the ministry. I look forward to seeing the Lord continue to work in Argentina.
