Argentina Mission Team Update

Taking a lunch break and little rest before the afternoon of street ministry and the evening service. This is a group of kids we ran into going home for lunch, pastor Gregg challenged them to all come tonight to service and if they do we will buy them pizza! They seemed thrilled. Pray with us that they do come, each teen reached has a family that can also be reached for God and this church! - Melinda Nickerson

One of our days with the children at the plaza or what we call the park. Had so much fun. -Elizabeth Mier

Day 1 walking to first service and Evangelist Greg bringing the Word in such a powerful way but you know he can't leave out the facial expressions. Jonah shared his testimony as well. -Elizabeth Mier

Our time evangelizing in the near by neighborhoods. Proud of everyone and their willingness to serve where they are need and they have all gone BEYOND. Proud of our team especially my husband who was willing to be a clown. Lol! -Elizabeth Mier

For those of you who are interested, our team had a great day here at los lomitas Formosa Argentina. We had some workshops this morning, street evangelism and a great children's ministry time at the local park! Hopefully it will all pay off and we will have a full church tonight for the new church we are here helping to plant! Pray that many people will come to know our Lord and Savior this week and many seeds will be planted for generations of Argentinians to come!god is faithful and he promises that he will bless our efforts and his word will not come back void! So help us celebrate the many souls that will be forever changed this week! -Melinda Nickerson

Ecuador Mission Team #3 Update (Day 6)

Day 6:

My apologies for getting this to you so late. Our power was out yesterday afternoon and all night.

Yesterday started out in the most amazing way! We had a baptism of a young lady that has been a believer here for a little while. One of the team members read the story of Jesus' baptism and another team member had the privilege of baptizing her. It was absolutely beautiful!

In the afternoon, we had a Bible study with a very new believer, who accepted Christ on the March trip. We were all amazed at the wisdom
that came from her in such a short time. You can see that God is moving in her. We again shared the story of Joseph. We did not know this but, she is facing a lot of struggles with her sons and jealousy between them. The perfect story to share! Again, The Lord guiding our steps. She even said that she knew these struggles were because she'd accepted Christ and Satan was not happy about that. See the wisdom I'm referring to?! We had a sweet time of prayer, discipleship, and encouragement. We showed her a way to present the gospel using a colored soccer ball, similar to the bracelets. We call it "football gospel." 🙂 Pray for her and that these boys will settle their differences.

As I mentioned earlier, the power was out, but that didn't end our study. We had 16 studying and praying in the dark! After the study, we walked with flashlights to a restaurant that was running off a generator. And it was BUSY!! There were 17 at dinner, and all of us were able to sit down to dinner and enjoy sweet fellowship together.

This morning, the musicians are playing and singing with a local church for their worship service, then we will begin to prepare for our movie night while saying many goodbyes.

Pray for the movie tonight. Pray that lost people will turn to Christ, that broken marriages will be healed, that the Spirit will speak through us to minister to them. Pray for comfort for the team, as goodbyes are always so hard! We love you all, we are praying that everyone had a blessed Sunday, and that no matter what language we are worshipping in that God will be so glorified for He is worthy! -Julia Roberts
