Night of the temples

foto-0004With the success of “Night of the museums,” the government of the city of Buenos Aires held a “Night of the Temples” on the 17th of December. From the 19th until 2 in the morning, one could visit 50 different temples to learn more about their beliefs.

 

In this time we were present with a stand in the congregation of San Pablo in Belgrano. From that location we were able to share with 75 people who visited our folder on “What do Lutherans believe and teach.”

 

We presented historical videos of our church, different versions of the Bible, and had a talk about the 500 years of the Reformation.

 

They are activities that are an opportunity to share our faith in the one truth, that is Jesus Christ.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!!

“Defeating the giants”

Through the Joel project, we came to school number 686 Arroyito, Misiones. There, 21 children were able to learn about biblical history “
based on 1st Samuel 17:1-50. It was a wonderful experience with the children of the the 5th grade, who spoke of how to face the giants of disobedience, annoyances, fights, ect. always with the help of God. Thanks to the teacher; Verónica, for allowing us to work with these children!

Visiting Santa Rosa

We would like to share our visit to the city of Santa Rosa (capital of the provence of Pampa) with everyone. Pastor Ewado Beckmann lives near there, who was the CPTLN director in Argentinadscn2434 between 1970-1986. Pastor was invited especially to celebrate our 70th anniversary in Buenos Aires last July. He could not come however due to health problems. Due to this, we have been left with goals of holding a public recognition for his work over many years with our ministry. Therefore, Sunday, the 11th of September after worship, our chaplain was able to recognize and honor pastor Beckmann in front of his congregation, friends and family. It was a joyful moment for everyone. It was a great surprise for him and he remains very thankful for those moments lived. We pray God continue to be with this faithful worker.

Elva

14100439_10209999401204252_5200537319450069106_nElva has been with us from the mission in the neighborhood of Independencia, a neighborhood inhabited by very poor people who have many socio-economical problems:  Poverty, violence, drugs, and alcohol. Together with her husband, they are the pillars of the congregation and they carry out the work together with the pastor of the congregation of José León Suarez. More than twenty years ago, a group of youth came to the neighborhood to work missionaly and they found some people like Elva and her family, they opened their doors for spiritual needs. So through them came, our Bible course “Towards a new life.” Many of those who took the course are still there, working and worshiping God. The same goes for Elva, who is actively involved in the church, and also is active with us today. First as a volunteer and for a while as a secretary of our board. Elva is a woman of faith who is always ready to serve. We thank God for having her with us!
