Less than two years ago a group of students from Palabra de Vida in Buenos Aires decided to work together in Salta in the North of Argentina. One member of this team, Nicolas Gallo, became a Hispanics for Christ Field Coordinator this last year, and he and the missions team are doing some incredible things with minimal resources and in a short period of time!
Some of the achievements of this team so far have been forming the church-planting ministry ESEF (Building on the Foundation) – then launching their six-month discipleship program (CEDA), their two-year Center for Biblical Studies, and a community care/evangelism program called Salta Life, as well as various evangelistic outreaches, campaigns and youth events. They have also started two churches and purchased land to construct a building for the ministry.
The first week in August this ministry will send a team to Venezuela to share the Gospel and work with local pastors in a jungle region known as Delta Amacuro. For a taste of what this area looks like, check out the Youtube video from a eco-tour group called Wakajara . The vision of this team is incredible.
