After leaving Brazil, Brother Sam traveled to Argentina, arriving on Monday, April 18, in Posadas, the capital city of the Misiones Province. There he met with a group of pastors and church workers interested in our organization. He said the meeting went well.
Then, on Wednesday, he went to Obera, Misiones, to encourage one of our newer groups. He said they are struggling to find a suitable place to worship as the people in the area do not accept home meetings. Another purpose for his visit was to strengthen their foundation of sound doctrine. To this end, teachings and training sessions were held all day Thursday and Friday followed by church services in the evenings.
Thursday evening’s text was taken from Matthew 11:28-30 where Jesus admonished all to take upon them His yoke, which is easy, and His burden, which is light. It was brought out that Christ’s yoke results in such things as joy, righteousness, and peace while the yoke of the world yields sickness, trouble, and sorrow. A good altar service followed the meeting.
Friday’s service focused on the origin, purpose, and doctrines of the Apostolic Faith Church with a time for questions and answers. Brother Sam said many were hungry to know more about salvation, the ordinances, and marriage, as well as other topics.
Brother Sam leaves Obera encouraged, noting that the group leader, Nelson Bubans, and his wife, Carmen, “are committed to following and promoting the true Gospel—something much needed in their area.” As he now leaves for Peru, he requests that we keep them in our prayers.
