Ministry name/ organization you are connected with:
Sebding church; First Baptist Church, Baxter, MN
Agency that receives and receipts our support: Central Missionary Clearinghouse, Houston, TX.
Location: Isidro Casanova, Buenos Aires, Argentina
Background: I (Barry) am from Minnesota, and Diane is from Wisconsin. We arrived in Argentina in January of 1988, and have been in Isidro Casanova since 1989. We began the Iglesia Bautista Calvario in June of 1989, the Baptist Bible College in 2004, and minister mainly in these two ministries.
Ministry highlights from 2016: We began planning a new church plant in a neighboring city of González Catán with our son-in-law and daughter, Ben and Rachelle Metzger, along with four other families from our church who live in that city. Also, in October our intern pastor, Leonel Escobar, was called to pastor a sister church in a city about 45 minutes from us. It was a joy and privilege to ordain and commission Leo and his wife Claudia to the pastoral ministry in Bella Vista.
2017-2018 Ministry Goals: We desire to begin services in the new church plant in González Catán in June. We continue to pray and seek to make disciples of Jesus Christ and train more brothers and sisters in Christ for the Gospel ministry.
Specific Prayer Requests: Pray for us as a family, that God will help us all to stay concentrated on growing in our love for Him and for others, and that we would all walk with God. Please pray for our church, that we would all do the same as we seek to serve God here in our city as well as have a missionary vision for the rest of the world.
Thank you so much for your faithful prayer support and financial support to us!
