We just purchased tickets for Arequipa, Peru!
That’s right! We are doing our diligence to begin language school, and prepare for ministry in Spanish speaking South America!
After much counsel and advice from my pastor, and the leadership of Vision Baptist Missions, we want to get ahead of any potential delays in the coming weeks and begin training as soon as possible.
We are not yet certain when Argentina will open it’s borders to Americans, and there are mixed reports ranging from a month to six months. With that said, we are excited about the opportunity to be involved in ministry on the mission field and look forward to God using this time in our lives for His glory!
It has been 18 years since I have been in Peru, and I look forward to seeing some familiar faces, reminiscing on old times, and seeing familiar places. Please continue to pray with us as we take any step we can during these uncertain times! We are continuing to pay for our house in Argentina, and will now be paying for a furnished place in Peru; so please pray with us about this additional cost. However, He is worthy!
I had this thought as I was typing this announcement: to us, these days seem unprecedented, and uncertain; but I’m thankful to know that the Creator of this universe is not caught off guard, He is not at all surprised, and His will will be done to accomplish that task of world evangelism! May God’s name be magnified by our lives and actions as we take the gospel to the uttermost parts of the earth!
Thank you all for you faithful love, prayers, and support for our family!
Your Missionaries to Argentina,
