Opportunities for ministry abound when the Women of Grace USA Go team heads to Corrientes, Argentina, in September, according to Miriam Pacheco, team leader.
The team leaves September 4 and returns to the U.S. on September 16. The main focus of the team is to help missionaries Alice Peacock and Kevin and Holly High build relationships at the new mission point in Corrientes. Team members will help English language students practice by conversing. The team will also be helping with children’s ministries in low income communities.
“This is an opportunity to see missions up close and hands on,” says Pacheco. “It will not only be life-changing for the team members, but also for her home congregation as she comes home with a new appreciation for the work missionaries do and with a renewed urgency to help her church family fulfill their part in the Great Commission. We also desire to encourage our missionaries and help them in any way needed.”
Alice, Kevin, and Holly have been working with the Argentine national church to reach Corrientes with the Gospel through planting churches. “Although Grace Brethren missionaries have been in Argentina many years, the outreach in Corrientes has been for only a few years,” stresses Pacheco. “We will be working with their contact-making ministries of English classes, Bible studies, and ministering to children in impoverished areas.”
Corrientes is in northeastern Argentina, 600 miles north of Buenos Aires and very close to the Argentine borders with Paraguay, Brazil, and Uruguay.
Women of Grace USA has sponsored women’s ministry teams in the U.S. to Urban Hope in Philadelphia, Pa., and internationally to Mexico City, Mexico; Buenos Aires, Argentina; Montevideo, Uruguay; Central African Republic; Prague, Czech Republic; Trinidad; and Belem, Brazil.
