This month has been very eventful to say the least. We have seen the Lord bless in some very miraculous ways and we are very excited to see what He will do this month as well.
In our first few weeks of trying to raise our SetUp fund the Lord has already provided $7k of our total need. That will cover our housing deposit, which I will pay July 11th, and part of our airfare to move the family August 13th. What an amazing blessing from the Lord.
I was also able to lead a young man to Christ on the 4th of July, which is also Cassandra’s birthday. We were returning from our “Birthday Date” and started a conversation with our Uber driver as always. We began to tell him why we were living in Costa Rica, to learn Spanish so we could share the gospel and start Churches in Argentina. I told him it was the greatest job on earth to tell people that Jesus loves them, & that He died for them to forgive their sins, as well as show them that they could know for sure that they will go to Heaven when they die. He answered “oh, I don’t know that.” I asked if he would like to know, to which he responded ‘yes”. I then began to share with him the Word of God and a few moments later he bowed his head to asked Christ to save him. It was the simplest Gospel presentation ever but he was ready and God did all the work. We were so grateful to be a part of God working in that young man’s life. Please pray for Christian as he begins a new life as a believer and pray we can get him plugged into a good Church before we leave.
We still need to raise $18k more in less than 2 months! If you would please pray about how you might be able to give toward these needs. We are so grateful for all of your prayers and support!

Impact Patagonia News:
We have a newly designed website dedicated to Impact Patagonia which will give you more detailed information about our Church Planting efforts, the need & our vision to reach Northern Patagonia’s Lake District with multiple Church Plants, as well as introduce you to the Team that God has put together so far.
One of the most important jobs of a missionary is to train National Pastors how to Plant Churches. The best way to do that is to work together Planting Churches side by side as a team. The Lord has already provided us, while here in Costa Rica ,with an Argentine Preacher with a heart to reach his country through Church Planting. We will be working together planting the New Life Baptist Church in the Summer of 2020. You can find out more on our new site @ impactpatagonia.com
