Argentina

A year ago we had talked with our home church pastor, Mostyn Roberts of Welwyn Evangelical Church, about the possibility of him visiting us in August 2013, to minister the Word of God to various Reformed Baptist churches, with which we have built contacts over the last few years. He gladly accepted the invitation and the church kindly paid his air fare. If you had been with us, you probably you would have been struck by two things, the difference between each church and the churches’ isolation, due to the immense distances we had to cover — 2300 miles.     We drove from our home...

Heartcry in Argentina

Heartcry in Argentina   There are various reasons for expecting that a meeting in Argentina dealing with the doctrines of grace would turn out a complete failure. Firstly, there is much ignorance on this subject, among churches and church leaders; and even a lack of interest in historic Christianity.      Secondly, the speaker chosen for this meeting was an unknown pastor from Peru. Thirdly, the place it was held in was a rather run-down mission hall on the outskirts of a Buenos Aires suburb, a considerable distance from the nearest main railway station (a last-minute change forced on the organisers by the original hosts).     ...

Missionary Spotlight-Sola Scriptura in Argentina

On 31 October 1517 Martin Luther nailed his 95 theses to the door of Wittenberg Church – and Sola Scripturabecame the battle cry of Protestant Europe and the dread of every Roman Catholic scholar. Once again this battle cry has been sounded, but now in the southernmost part of Latin America – Argentina. ARBCA missionary Don Donell organised the first distinctly reformed pastors’ conference in the Cordoba province, and the first for many years in the city of Buenos Aires. The conference focussed on the doctrine of Sola Scriptura. In Argentina millions live under the spiritual tyranny of Catholic traditions and pagan superstitions. The Bible...

Missionary Spotlight-Argentine

 God has been faithful to our small mission work in Argentine. We have come to realise more clearly than ever that God saves people ‘where they are’. Their sins and ignorance, and the consequences of previous bad teaching, must be handled with a gospel spirit. If you think it should be easy to maintain ‘the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace’ with only two new converts in a nine-month-old mission – well think again! Our enemy does not sleep!   Jealousy   In December there arose such envy and jealousy between the two converts that I was sure it would put a...

Missionary Spotlight-Argentina from the interior

Iam a Reformed missionary living in Villa Carlos Paz. This is a city in Cordoba province, a nine-hour drive into the interior of Argentina. I am now seeing a different kind of Argentina – a nation whose landscape is as varied as its people and culture – from the one I studied (or envisioned) before arriving on 11 September 2001. It is also different from the one I experienced when living for 10 months in the grand city of Buenos Aires. Questions The fact that we arrived from a country ‘under terrorist attack’ to join a people who had been under siege from economic and...

Missionary Spotlight – Argentina in crisis

As the news headlines over the last 18 months testify, Argentina’s major economic crisis, unresolved for five years, has come to a head.   Tensions climaxed in December 2001, when Argentina had five different presidents in 10 days, and 26 people died in street riots. But this is not the Republic’s real crisis. Hopelessness   The Falklands War of 1981 ended a horrendous chapter in the lives of many Argentinians. Up to then the military government had carried on a ‘dirty war’ against its own people, with the systematic disappearance, imprisonment, torture and death of nearly 80,000 people over seven years. However, almost from the...
