This past Friday, Alex Gulart and Cory Hodgson conducted their first Bible study in the border city of Posadas, Argentina. After a four-hour drive south to the Paraguayan city of Encarnacion, across the Paraná River from Posadas, they were joined by Alex’s friend Natanael who is currently a university student interested in ministering to Muslims. Natanael has some contacts at a university in Posadas, and they agreed to meet for a Bible study.
We met with Arnold, an influential student leader, and Patricia, who works in a café. Alex discussed some important ideas from the book of Hebrews and there was some great interaction. About halfway through the lesson, a young man named Emanuel overheard what was going on and asked to join the study. He had some great questions and was grateful to hear what Alex was sharing. After the Bible study we visited with a Christian man who is part of the Laotian community in Posadas and from there we visited a local Buddhist temple.
We are thankful for the contacts Natanael has supplied in Argentina and for his dedication to sound doctrine and evangelism. Please pray for our team in Paraguay as we seek to broaden our contact base in Argentina and continue to reach university students with the good news of Jesus Christ.
