The Lord is doing wonderful things here in Argentina and we are glad to have a part in it. Since you have a part in us, there is fruit that is abounding to your account.
If we think of fulfilling the Great Commission in terms of war, there is much ground to be gained in many theaters across the globe. My family has been deployed to the theater of South America to the strategic battle ground of Buenos Aires, Argentina. The enemy tactics include confusing the gospel message with Catholic traditions and Charismatic health and wealth prosperity gospel.
We recognize that to win our country and beyond, we need to establish strong forts (churches) for every 50,000 people. Specifically, that means we need about 15 more forts here in La Plata, 95 in Southern Greater Buenos Aires, 230 in all of Greater Buenos Aires and over 700 in all of Argentina. We understand that this is long term trench warfare that needs support and reinforcements from back home. The specific areas we are focusing on are: Recruitment, Communications, Training of Soldiers, and Building Forts. (Evangelism, Radio, Bible College, and Church Planting)
Thanks to the grace of God, we have been moving forward on all fronts, with a special emphasis in the Bible College training soldiers for the Lord’s Army. I am happy to report that we have 33 students enrolled in the first semester of 2015! Please pray for these students, myself, and the other teachers as we train to fight the good fight.
Joshua and Jennifer Smith are in Buenos Aires, Argentina to plant churches, train national leaders, continue teaching in the Bible College and expand the Radio Ministry.
