Pastor Gary Underwood (pictured) from the Delaware, Ohio, Grace Brethren Church and his wife, Jennie, are off on a trip to Argentina. You can follow their progress by clicking on http://underwoodsinargentina.blogspot.com/ Here are a few introductory comments from the blog they are keeping.
Welcome to Gary & Jennie’s trip blog, travel log, and journal updates for our trip to Buenos Aires for short-term missions. The people on the left are Dave & Ruth Ann Martin, missionaries with GBIM (Grace Brethren International Missions) in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Long-time members of our church, Dave and Ruth Ann sensed God’s call to full-time missions work in the late 1990s, and have been serving Christ with a team of missionaries there for a while.
Jennie and I will update this blog on a regular basis throughout our trip, or as we are able.
A trip like this has been “in the works” and planned by our missions team at Grace for several years. We’ve wanted to send a pastor/leader from our church overseas as a way to encourage and help missionaries, research future opportunities, and also to keep our hearts focused on God’s worldwide command to “make disciples” (Matthew 28:19-20).
