The SPARKS

Church Planting Missionaries to Chile

We are the Sparks family! Please take a moment for us to tell you a little bit about us and how we can partner together to take the gospel to Chile!

Manuel and his wife, Mariela, have been going through discipleship lessons with me and Anna over the past six months. We have seen them grow in their walk with the Lord. Manuel let me know that he desires to be pastor or church-planter! We are excited about his decision and we will continue to train them for the ministry. He also plans to start taking classes soon at the Chile Training Center. Please pray for Manuel, Mariela, and their two children as they prepare for the Lord’s work. 

Recently we had a special Children’s Day service because it’s a nationally celebrated day. We had many visiting families and one of the highest attendances in our eight-month history. There were two professions of faith as well! The Lord is also working in the hearts of many others including an older couple that has been regularly attending the church.  Pedro and Erica are 60-years-old and have been married for 35 years. They have three sons. They live just a few blocks away from our church. Pedro has battled with drunkenness since his mother passed away seven years ago. They both need to be saved. Both have admitted that they are lost and need to be saved. She is about ready but he has some reservations. Please pray for their salvation. 

The second trimester of the Chile Training Center is going well. I enjoy teaching and watching young people grow in grace and their knowledge of the  Bible. Please pray for the 50 that are enrolled and for more laborers for the Lord’s harvest. 

We continue our search for a future, permanent property for Love Baptist Church. We are still praying and asking God to supply the funds to purchase something by the end of this year. If you would like to help out, you may send a check to Vision Baptist Missions (address below) noted: Love Baptist Chile. Thank you for your consideration.

I would like to invite everyone to Vision Baptist’s first World Evangelism Fellowship Conference in Alpharetta, Georgia, November 4 & 5, 2019. This conference will encourage you to do more to reach the world with the gospel. Please, sign-up at
