ministry pictures from Patagonia

I am really excited to share these photos with you! In a little over a month, we will be living and working here - the Patagonian province of Neuquén, Argentina. 

Here are some pictures of some of the ministry and missions that our friends and contacts are currently doing there. Soon, and Lord-willing, we will be doing it, too!

various Bible activities
Personal evangelism: sharing the gospel one-on-one

some believers in a little village called Cancha Huinganco,
200 miles up in the mountains from the city of Neuquén

oh, and remember that recent volcanco explosion? here's what it looked like on the road to Bariloche,
just 4 hours from our new home :)

We are beginning to see what Edgardo meant when he said that our mission mobile will be a tremendous blessing to have there... don't you think? And I just want to thank Chris N.! One of those many tents you gave us will come in pret-ty handy when we go to minister in these far, and I mean FAR off the beaten path places! I never thought I'd see the day my city-slicker husband CAMPED, but I do declare that God answers prayer and we may indeed camp after all. I can't imagine lodging is plentous, or even available, in these here parts.

Chris, I am back from China and so happy to stop by your blog and see what is going on. We are well and adjusting with our little girl day by day. Can you believe it?? You are really going to Patagonia!! I know you must sometimes think, are we crazy?? You have envisioned this and planned and prayed every step. God will bring the vision to it's fruition and He has a plan for good for you and your family! I pray the fire of desire for missions continues to burn in you by the power of the Spirit and you will remain confident, steadfast and passionate for your journey! :)Annie
