Newsletter Summer 2021

Dear Friends,

Just writing to update you on how things are going in Argentina and our plans for the following year. The Lord has been faithful to us and the ministry in Argentina during the Pandemic. We have seen God at work in our lives and in our church. Much of the ministry for the last months has been online, but we could gather in reduced numbers for a time.

BIG NEWS! Starting Itineration July 2021

We are excited about the opportunity of sharing in your church. If you are interested in us visiting your church, let us know. You can write to us at [email protected] with a possible date, time, and how we can best contact you.

We are looking forward to being with you and sharing what the Lord has been doing in Argentina and our lives.

Baptismal during the Pandemic

It was so exciting to have a baptismal in January to see those who decided to follow Jesus. Also, to see new souls coming to Jesus Christ in the middle of the Pandemic. We are continuing to disciple them to follow in the steps of Christ.

School of Pastors and Leaders 2021
Online Success

In February, we held our annual conference for pastors and leaders. We had over 100 registered for the two seminars with ministry from a Pastor in California and Spain. It was an instructional and inspiration time for leaders from many parts of Argentina and neighboring countries.

Festival for the Family Creative ministry

It was challenging, but the ministry went forth with several service areas taking blood pressure, haircuts, manicures, help with documentation, exercise class, and kid’s corner. Many neighbors participated, and it was a significant outreach for the church.

Centro Cristiano Vida 8th anniversary and our mission’s convention

In March, our church celebrated the 8th anniversary of the church with a mission convention. We had an Argentine missionary family going to Croatia share with us about their ministry. We received our faith promises for the new year and an international dinner with our Life Groups preparing the food. So, thrilling to see how missions are growing at CCVIDA.

Inspired to Teach Church Planting online

So, joyed to teach from our book the DNA of Church Planting to over 80 students in three different opportunities. Many shared how they were inspired to plant a new church. We believe to see many new churches planted in Argentina and other countries. In fact, there were around 8 different nations represented in the classes. Thanks for praying for workers for our world to plant churches.

New Property and Church Building in Buenos Aires


We are continuing to raise funds for the new church property and building for the church in San Isidro. Our present facilities are not sufficient to meet the need. We are excited about those coming to Christ. We now have 70 units @ $5000. Still needing 130 units. You can help by sending your offering by using the enclosed envelope. Thanks to all that have helping to see this miracle a reality.


Thanks again for your most valuable part of the ministry of church planting. We look forward to sharing at your church starting in July through the following year. We are excited to be closer to our USA family; living this next year close by our son Stephen, his wife Courtney, and our Granddaughter Ellie will be a real treat.
Yours for the Harvest,
Rocco and Daiana Di Trolio

About Argentina
