Argentina

Missionary Spotlight Update: Eric and Kristi Stanton

The Patagonia region of Argentina is plagued with high divorce rates and broken homes. But missionaries Eric and Kristi Stanton know that in order to have healthy churches, it’s vital to have healthy individuals and families.

That’s why they are praising the Lord for the opportunity to use marriage enrichment resources to train key leaders. These leaders, in turn, are beginning to gather small groups in their homes to share the truth of God’s Word with other couples.

Like the Stantons, ask God to work mightily in the lives and homes of people throughout the region, saving those who are lost and restoring marriages.

Most Argentines consider themselves Christians because of their Roman Catholic heritage, but the Stantons realize they do not know Christ. So the missionaries are training believers and sharing Bible study tools and resources as they cast the vision for believers to share Christ with their families and neighbors.

Pray the Stantons would see Argentines moving farther into Patagonia, carrying the gospel to those who have not heard.

Teaching God’s Word in a Diverse Environment

Diverse Environment

In a city of 14 million people from almost every ethnic and religious group, Kevin and Laura Baggett persevere in their efforts to teach the Word of God. Buenos Aires, Argentina, is defined by diversity, which challenges the Baggetts and their 2 children, Cylia and Lucas, every day.

Laura Baggett paints a vivid picture: “In one city block, you might encounter a successful lawyer on his way to a meeting, a homeless child asking for money, a Peruvian woman buying vegetables from a Bolivian teenager, a talented Argentine playing an instrument, an immigrant from Senegal selling jewelry on the sidewalk, an elderly woman walking to the Catholic church carrying a picture of a saint while whispering a prayer to Mary, an Orthodox Jew dressed in a black suit and hat stopping by his business, a Muslim woman covered by her hijab walking closely with her children, an atheist university student waiting on the bus boasting a T-shirt with profanity, and an agnostic taxi driver wearing a red ribbon to ward off evil thought.”
