We were so excited to have a vision team from Tennessee come and spend a week here with us. They had time to meet people, learn about life here, the culture, and the beliefs of the people. They also got to know us pretty well, too. We can't wait for the first team to arrive from their church!

Our first church team arrives to Salta today! We're so excited for another group from Denver Baptist Church in Denver, NC to work with us again. It is always so much fun when they come visit and so I'm sure this group won't let us down! Here's a bit of what we'll be doing this week:
- Visits and evangelistic movie in the plaza in El Carril
- A 2 day trip to San Antonio de los Cobres for visits, teachings, movie, and encouragement to current believers.
- Work in San Luis with the church plant
- Free day somewhere in between, and eating lots of beef and empanadas!
Please pray for us as well as the 4 members of the team this week. Specifically pray for:
- Traveling mercies
- Health- that we would all stay well and not encounter any physical ailments.
- Boldness- to teach people something new about the gospel that they may have enver heard before
- Protection from spiritual warfare
Thank you, in advance!!!

We're excited that the church in San Luis is headed to San Antonio de los Cobres again. This will be the church's 2nd mission trip already! It's exciting to see that they are willing to go and minister to others and tell them about the Lord. Please pray for this one night trip as they go to share in a very dark place.

Thank you for all the prayers for the mission trip to San Luis. It was a great success! The group went out and met several people in the town and made contacts. Later on they showed the Jesus Film and had a great turnout. We are looking forward to the second trip they'll take in March!

Today a group of about 10 people from our new church plant in San Luis left for San Antonio de los Cobres, a town about 4 hours away. This is the first mission trip for these members as a new church! We are so excited for their willingness to already go and tell others about the Lord.
Please keep the following things in your prayers:

His heart, His hands, His voice – through praying
Jesus tells us in Matthew 9:38 to pray to the Lord of the harvest to send out workers into His harvest. We must join our hearts with God’s in praying for every language, people, tribe and nation to hear and receive the Gospel. Thousands of people groups have never heard the Good News; God calls us to faithfully intercede for them. Would your church consider adopting a people group to pray for? And please pray for us and other Southern Baptist missionaries who are sharing Jesus in dark places. Your intercession helps us to walk out the Great Commission.
His heart, His hands, His voice – through giving
Christians may have different talents and abilities, but we all come together to form the body of Christ. Southern Baptist missionaries can’t carry the Gospel to the ends of the earth without your support. Through your giving, we are freed to concentrate our time and efforts on engaging the unreached with the Gospel. How much will you give to reach the ones who still do not know? Think about what you spend on Christmas gifts for family and friends. Then consider giving your biggest gift to God through the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering. The 2012 goal is $175 million. What role will you play? Give here.
His heart, His hands, His voice – through going
For 160 years, Southern Baptists have been faithful to step out of their comfort zones and go around the world with the Gospel. But even today, billions of people remain lost. The church was given the Great Commission, and we must take responsibility for helping reach the unreached people groups of the world. Would your church consider partnering with Southern Baptist missionaries and sending members to touch lost people groups with God’s love? The work is hard, but the reward is unspeakable. Come join in God’s global mission! Learn how you can go here.

When our summer interns, Ryan and Angie were here, as well as the team from their church, they were able to visit Potrero de Uriburu with Joe. They showed a movie in the local school, and took a few toys for the kids there. A few weeks ago Joe was able to go back with a local pastor. This pastor already knew some people there which helped Joe to have a connection. The week after, he returned to have his first bible study and with adults
and kids, around 15 attended.
The brick house in the background is where they live and where we held the study.
We are trying to take advantage of the next month or so in going to this place because once summer/ rainy season hits, it will be impossible to go there because the river bed we cross will go from dry to raging river. In total we've gone for about a month and a half. The people are open and have interest in learning more.
There's one man, Ernesto (in the picture above), who said he's interested in being trained so he can teach and train others! We're amazed by this because it's very uncommon here! Please be praying for Potrero de Uriburu and the people there.

2012 Lottie Moon Christmas Offering
Jesus tells His disciples in Matthew 16:24-25, “If anyone wants to come with me, he must deny himself, take up his cross, and follow me. For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life because of Me will find it.”
As followers of Christ, we must be obedient to Him, whatever the cost. We must be His heart, His hands and His voice in the midst of a world filled with unreached peoples. We are part of the task to fulfill the Great Commission. And although we Southern Baptists have been praying, giving and going for 160 years, the task is far from finished. How will you be involved this year? Check with your local Southern Baptist Church or go here to give and become involved.

We had our first official service as "La Iglesia Biblica de San Luis" (The Bible church of San Luis) tonight! It was such an overwhelming feeling to say we are finally a church in a place we've worked for over two years. We're thankful for the ways the Lord as blessed and used the work we have done in this area.
Over those two years, we have worked, as well as used several US teams to assist in evangelism, encouraging local believers, prayer walking, outreach, and host evangelical movie nights.
As we move forward as a local church, we're anxious to see what the Lord will do in and through us, the local believers, and in San Luis. Also, please continue to lift up the pastor and his wife, Torrico and Ana, and their 4 children.

We really enjoyed having Scott and Matt come join our summer interns, Ryan and Angie, to work as a team from their church, Centerpoint. During their week here they helped with outreach and evangelism, and built a small house, for a man who was without a home, in the mountains. They were also able to show an evangelistic film in a mountin school, and travel to a high mountain town, San Antonio de los Cobres, to encourage a small group of believers. That trip was the hardest because it's so high in altitude. We all ended up making a trip to the hospital to suck in some extra oxygen (which ended up being pretty funny)! We're thankful for their hard work and service and can't wait to see what God does as a result of this week!
Here are some more photos from the week:

The team from Centerpoint got here and jumped right in to the work we had planned. They have already been able to see many places and help in the work that's been taking place. Angie got sick the second day of their trip, so pray she will continue to feel better. Here's some of what they've been up to.

A few weeks ago, Joe, the two interns, Ryan & Angie, and Parker took a drive into one of the valleys where we work. They went with the hope of finding someone to talk to in one of the small villages. It has been difficult to enter places without some kind of connection to a national. However, God went before them and opened a door. Two men who live in the village of Chorillos were there and spent time talking with Joe. He explained that if they were ever interested in studying the Bible, he would come back anytime. After visiting a bit more they said, "can we have a bible study right now?". That never happens! Joe quickly said yes and had the first study with them. For the last few weeks they have continued to meet and study together. Please pray for these two men to comtinue to have an interest in the Bible!
