Safe arrival in Argentina

March 21, 2010 2:17 pm

We arrived in Argentina on Wednesday morning of last week. We had a good trip with no surprises. All our bags arrived safely and at the same time we did. A wonderful answer to prayer.

Bro. Jeff Bush picked us up from the airport and took us to his house to rest and recover from the 10 hour overnight flight. Bro. Bush is the missionary we will be working with in one of the ministries we will start here. He graciously allowed me to preach and share my heart and goals with the church that night.

Thursday and Friday were spent looking at houses. Lord willing we will sign a rental agreement on a house on Monday morning. Because of the time of year and the dynamics of the town we are in there is quite a bit of competition for any available rental properties. We are praying to get one house in particular. However it is not a sure deal until papers are signed and money exchanged. Please pray that we will get the house the Lord has for us.

Saturday we met some Deaf in town and learned a few signs to get us started. The biggest thing we learned is that the sign language really is as different as we expected.

Thanks for your prayers through this first week. As busy as the week has been it has gone quite well. Praise the Lord.

Prayer requests for Argentina move

Here is a list of prayer requests that I passed out to a group of friends this weekend. These include a couple of immediate needs as well as short term needs as we arrive in Argentina.

  • Wisdom in packing
  • Safety in travel
  • Finding a house quickly
  • Learning the sign language quickly
  • Learning the public transportation
  • Wisdom in juggling the 2 different ministries (deaf church and deaf ministry in the hearing church)
  • Churches that have had to cut back financially will be able to take us on again
  • More churches and individuals to take us on as a missions project

Gifts and support can be sent to:

Baptist International Outreach
PO Box 587
Jefferson City, TN 37760

Indicate that it is for us or put our account number (567) on the check.

The above address is the new mission board office address. You can still use the old address for a while, but please start using the new one as soon as possible.

We will leave on Tuesday March 16 at 3:00 from the Ft. Walton Beach airport. We appreciate your prayers and friendship as we move into this new phase of ministry.
