JUNE 2019: Argentina
“People who do not know the Lord ask why in the world we waste our lives as missionaries. They forget that they too are expending their lives… and when the bubble has burst, they will have nothing of eternal significance to show for the years they have wasted.”
Wow! What a tremendous time to be living! Not because everything is
smooth and comfortable, but because of the many challenges we are
We traveled to the States for the Globe Missionary Conference in April, staying at the Launch Center, and participating at the Missions dinner where Humberto and I, among many other missionaries, were honored for our veteran service, what a memorable impact for us! Our children Nathalie and Sebas joined us for this trip. We met with friends, met new friends, and spent time with President Doug Gehman, sharing our work in Argentina. During the 18 days away from home, we rented a car, visited missionaries and friends in Miami, stopping with dear friends Bob and Ruthie in Orlando. Charity Chapel blessed us with meetings, meals, and fellowship. The Globe office staff is awesome and efficient. (I can’t mention so many by name but you are much appreciated). The trip inspired and encouraged us in our work here in Argentina.
What is happening in Argentina? With Humberto, we are traveling to a large pastors’ conference this month where a summit is planned to organize what is happening in our country. Abortion, gender education, and other issues are on the national agenda. From Cordoba, with a group of over 100 pastors, we are united to face these issues and others. There is a weekly prayer meeting of pastors held at our church property every Wednesday morning (for over 5 years now!)
We have organized training for 300 Christians on addictions, sponsored by the government project, but including a Christian focus. At our local church, Manantial de Vida, we are holding a conference on addictions for our neighbors and local schools.
Ariel is busy as a University professor and working towards his dream, to produce media content. He participated in the Buenos Aires ComicCon last month, as he was a scriptwriter for a series made in Cordoba called Hexian X which is being edited for
The Internet soon).
How can you help us?
Pray for us to know how to navigate our responsibilities and challenges with wisdom.
Pray that finances will be multiplied. We are working on tools and teaching to be available on the Internet. Funds for our local traveling expenses to events and conferences are needed. And if you can give, it would be to make a larger impact in Argentina.
Bless you! – Humberto and Evelyn Jiménez-Saint
