People who are dealing with difficulties in their lives, are having the opportunity to hear the message of hope in Christ in Argentina
Through 64 stations the Gospel is heard in 18 provinces of Argentina. Within the last three months Roberto has visited 45 radio stations, and praise the Lord, nine of them were added to our database. Some stations are located in large cities such as Cordoba, but most of them in smaller towns.
It means that 900 times per week, people who are dealing with difficulties in their lives, are having the opportunity to hear the message of hope in Christ. We praise Him because He is opening more outlets as Roberto visits radio stations, but since our goal as a ministry is to assist the churches with the proclamation of the Gospel, Roberto has been also contacting. A pastor from a church in the city of San Martin was very interested in our materials since his church owns a radio station. This station has played an important role in the church’s growth, therefore the pastor was very pleased to broadcast our programs that reflect a solid teaching and that includes an evangelistic emphasis in each program. Few months after they began to air the programs, Roberto received an invitation to preach at this church. The pastor explained to Roberto that as a part of their evangelistic emphasis they traveled two times per year to distant towns located in the border of Argentina, Chile and Bolivia, to share the Gospel in areas where there is no presence of Christian churches. The pastor considered that the CD’s with our programs would be a great blessing as they go in their missionary trips. Thus, Roberto provided them with over 50 Cd’s and other literature.
Ruben Ballesteros and his wife are another couple with a clear call to serve the Lord sharing the Gospel in desolate regions in the northern part of Argentina, areas where Christians are not willing to go.
When our missionary Roberto met Ruben and his wife, he encouraged them to use our materials as an evangelistic tool. As Ruben heard the programs, he realized that our Cd’s would be effective to not only share the Gospel, but also as a useful instrument to disciple new believers that do not have a church where to grow spiritually. Ruben was provided with several Cd’s to use them in their next trips. Argentina has a large territory and millions of people need to hear that salvation is possible through Christ. We praise the Lord because God is using Roberto as he seeks to expand the number of stations airing the programs over the radio or as he supplies with our programs to believers that are taking the time to spread the Gospel.
