Dear Pastors and Faithful Prayer Partners,
March has flown by and we are only picking up speed! As we continue looking for the place that God would have us to start our church, we are narrowing down our options of buildings for rent. I’m truly excited about all the possibilities in the area of Ezeiza and believe God is going to do something great!
I’m thrilled to report that I had the privilege to preach my first entire service this last month. We are so humbled by the kindness and support of Iglesia Bautista Fe, and cannot show our gratitude enough to have them as our church as we learn and adjust to Argentina. Patrick and Leslie Henry have done an absolutely phenomenal job mentoring and teaching these believers and I know they are ready to have the Henry family home!
I am continuing to make contacts in our area as well. On three different occasions, I’ve been able to present the gospel to those asking questions about Baptist beliefs in comparison to Catholicism. Its amazing to me how God opens these doors of opportunity, then provides the words to say in the moment we need to say them!
It has been our privilege as well to host Jason Holt, missionary in Santiago, Chile for a few days. He helped me tremendously as we surveyed Ezeiza and showed me good locations to start our church. He was also a blessing to Matias and Eric, Patrick’s guys at Fe.
Likewise, Ashlee and I hosted another guest for a couple of weeks; Karen Patterson. I had never met her previously to this trip, but she reached out during covid, before
we arrived, and told us of her desire to visit and serve. She was a great blessing
and had a tremendous attitude of service to the folks while she was here!
If you are interested in planning a missions trip to Argentina, it would be our pleasure to host you and your church group! Please reach out any time with questions and I will do my very best to answer and help plan any future missions trips!
Thank you for your continued love, prayers, and support.
Stephen, Ashlee, Peyton, Eli, and Neyland The Underwood Family
