Christmas & New Years Greetings!

January 4th, 2021

The Family

First off, I want to thank you for your faithfulness in praying for us over the past few years. In the same way, God has been very faithful and present in our lives.

On a personal update, Daiana and I were married on September 14, and we are excited for this new chapter to serve God together as we grow in our marriage. Daiana has been a wonderful addition to the church team and I believe her gifts will be used greatly in ministry. I am excited to announce the coming birth of my first grandchild to my eldest son, Stephen and his wife Courtney. Stephen is in his second year of Graduate School in Princeton, New Jersey. Courtney has launched her own floral company and is doing very well. My younger son, Christopher, is now living in Houston, Texas working in international business after a yearlong academic fellowship in Brazil.

The Ministry

I continue to Pastor Life Christian Center in San Isidro. God is blessing the church with new people coming to the Lord. A few highlights, this year we opened our Café Vida to the public and completed our first year of English classes at our Academy with 3 of the students from the neighborhood.

I also traveled this past year to Bolivia, Colombia, Mexico, Costa Rica working with AG, Four Square Church and Baptist Church and teaching on the importance of Church Planting and Discipleship as well as promotion of our books. A highlight was that we released “Take Courage” a Devotional book in English by my late wife, Ellen. You will want to get a copy!

The Need of Miracle

Many of you have become aware of our need for a new church planting center and church building for Life Christian Center and the incredible opportunity we have to meet that need. Several have given towards this as we our church continues to grow quickly and need space to see God’s promise unfold over San Isidro. We are currently in two services and will have too soon go to three. The property we are negotiating is a block away from our current building. It is a ¼ of city block in the heart of San Isidro, Buenos Aires. We need to raise a million dollars. No possibilities for loans in Argentina. We need 200-unit offerings of $5000. We currently have 30 and still need 170. Would you consider taking one or more of those units?

Thanks again and May God bless you for your continued prayers and support of the ministry in Argentina.
