Pastors and Leaders’ Conference in Peru
In the second week of October, I had the privilege to participate in my third straight annual Pastors and Leaders’ Conference in Arequipa, Peru. It was great to see several missionary friends and many other familiar faces from all over Latin America. My missions mentor, Pastor Austin Gardner, was used greatly during the week and encouraged us to do more for the Lord as if we knew His was return was imminent.
Exciting News: Plans to Plant Our 2nd Church and Others in Our Team
The Lord has laid it on my heart to go ahead and plant another church by faith with the help of two young men who I have been training for the ministry at Love Baptist Church. We have already begun looking for a property to rent for what will be our second church plant in as many years. Please pray for God’s leading in the right location here in Santiago.
Lord willing, there will be another two or three churches planted by some of the Chile Training Center graduates in 2020. John and his wife, who have served alongside us since the start of Love Baptist, will be planting a church here in Santiago after the first of the new year. Another young man and his wife from Faith Baptist plan to start a church in the south of Chile around September 2020. Also, one of the Chilean pastors who recently went to the conference with us in Peru is burdened to plant a church with one or two training center students from his church in the community where he grew up that has a great need for a good church. Please pray for these men to be able to start these other churches here in Chile.
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 can 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 https://visionmission.eventsmart.com/events/world-evangelism-fellowship-2019/
