To all our incredible friends and family,

We just had our second year anniversary party as LA COSECHA here in Saenz Pena.  We had over 100 people at church last Sunday and we baptized 5 people with at least 3 who are very close to taking that step as well.  The Lord has been great to us this last year.  We have seen people come to Christ, seen miracles in families and bodies, grown deeper fellowship and unity in the church, developed maturity in the believers and much much more. Below are some pictures of the anniversary church service and the baptisms.

Even though we know that this next year will still be a year of hard plowing, we are expecting great things from the Lord and are going to attempt great things for Him.  Here are a list of dreams for the year 2012:

-Multiply House Churches

-See the church grow to a group steady over 100 members

-Implement a city wide Training Course for the evangelization of children (we are looking to do this in February)

-Implement a school for the family to educate and develop strong, intelligent, bible based families (this should start in June)

-Start ‘Harvest Institute’ to develop pastors and Church Planters

-Remodel the building we are in by midyear to start a pre-school in march 2013.  Estimated Cost is around 50,000.00 dollars

-Get a newer vehicle.  Used cars are expensive here, but retain their value well.  To get a real good utility vehicle we would need 10-15,000.00 dollars.

-Do monthly evangelism efforts (besides the continual oikos -sphere of influence- evangelism)

-Put on a  great summer camp

-Have a powerful youth worship retreat

-Develop the worship band

-See the leadership team in Samuhu really take the reins of the church and take it to a real place of strength and growth.

-Many many salvations

-See many leaders developed in Saenz Pena

-and all the many surprises that the Lord has in store for us

We want to thank you all for the many ways you support us.  Without your involvement we couldn’t do all that God has set before us here.  God bless you as you bless our lives and the people of northern Argentina.

Anthony, Jessica and Ezekiel and Esteban
