Missions in Argentina (AR07)

by Moon Choi

This year, Lighthouse has the privilege of going back to Tucuman, Argentina to assist Pastor Jorge Ahualli and Iglesia Biblica Misionera from July 12-26. Team Argentina consists of sixteen members, led by Pastor Patrick Cho, who are diligently preparing through various meetings and also by reading For the Sake of His Name by David Doran.

“It has been a helpful book because the principles come straight from God’s Word and the author upholds a strong view of God’s plan for missions work to be done through the local church,” said Pastor Patrick. On top of that, they are undergoing specialized evangelism training as they anticipate encountering Catholics and responding to the “easy-believism” gospel. They will also be planning more specific events, such as evening programs held at the church. They are even preparing by shaping up physically, preparing for four days of door-to-door evangelism and a packed schedule that requires them to sleep late and wake up very early.

Aside from evangelism, the team plans to serve Pastor Jorge and IBM by any means possible, be it through helping with music, providing books (as resources are limited in Tucuman) or even cooking.

The goal of all this is centered around Christ and having the gospel preached accurately from the Word, not only in Tucuman but in the surrounding barrios.

The sixteen members of Team Argentina will not need only monetary support but just as importantly, support through prayer. Please consider partnering with the Argentina Missions in this capacity (specific prayer requests found below).

Needs for Prayer:

    – The sixteen team members to be God-honoring.
    – Pray not only for these Lighthouse members but also for Pastor Jorge, IBM, and all the Argentineans that the team will encounter.
    – Pray for the relationships between the interpreters to be good as well, as many of the solid interpreters from last year will not be joining the team this year.
    – Pray for the monetary needs of the team, as the entire team needs to raise around $40,000. (That’s a big number!)
    – Pray that God would use this team and Lighthouse to fulfill its vision to plant churches and world evangelization.
    – Please keep the team in your prayers during their preparation and after they leave for Argentina!
