January – March 2011

Time continues to rush by while there is so much work to be done. I would like to take a few moments of your time to share with you some of the rich blessings God is doing and has done here in Argentina.

Since January and February are summer months in Argentina, the calendar was full of retreats and camps. Our youth was divided into 2 groups and attended camp with other missionaries a few hours away. Thank the Lord many came back with hearts stirred and decisions to serve the Lord. We then had a ladies retreat with Lighthouse and Berean (the newest church) and the Lord blessed with good fellowship and one salvation decision amongst the ladies. The men’s retreat also was a blessing with over 40 men who attended and were challenged to serve the Lord.

 The Berean Baptist Church is doing wonderful and just last Sunday held their first baptism with 9 baptized! Praise the Lord! The pastor will graduate from the Bible college this year and the Lord is using him in a great way to win souls and teach others. The pastor is now leading the young church into a building project on the land they have. It gives me great joy to see the church grow spiritually as well as numerically and have a desire to go forward for the Lord. Near the end of March we have plans to formally organize the Berean Baptist Church. Pastor Hernan and the people are serving the Lord and we are excited to reach this goal and see how the Lord is going to take this church to another level.

While preaching a youth camp in western Argentina, I met a doctor who told me that he could help me with my arthritis. My family and I made the time and traveled to have treatment on my hand for one week. Although I am not 100% to what I would like to be, I can say that for the 1st time in over 4 years that I am using my right hand – and that is a big blessing! I would be very grateful if you would continue to pray for my health.

We are about to start up Bible College again (2nd week of March) and are looking forward to seeing what God is going to do. It looks as if the Lord is going to allow us to see around 20 students this year, many of them being 1st year students. Our desire is to see the Lord use the Bible College to prepare young men and women for the ministry of the Lord. Please pray that God will raise up a generation of servants to go forth and preach His Word.

We ask you to help us pray as we  desire to start another church on the other side of our city. We will be starting Hope Baptist Church alongside a young man who has graduated from the Bible College and a first-year Bible College student. We are currently looking for a place to rent and working out details and the next time we write we will be able to inform you of how the Lord is blessing at this new church.

As always we thank you for your constant prayers and support! May God richly bless you!

Here to Serve,

Jeff and Mindy Bush and family
