Christmas in Argentina
An excerpt from Christmas in Argentina
By Bonnie Gouge, Argentina
You have come to see and understand that missionaries have a unique lifestyle, being available at all hours of the night and day. Dads and moms are pouring themselves into the people of Argentina, impacting lives through daily living, teaching, discipling, and much more. The responsibility of teaching their children on top of missionary service is overwhelming at times. And so, there you are, in Argentina, making a difference in the lives of missionary children as you teach and shape them; making a difference in the lives of missionaries who are freed up for ministry; and making a difference in the lives of the Argentine people you have come to know and love.
As gifts are exchanged, you are thankful for God’s gift to you—His Son, Christ Jesus. You rejoice in the gift of a year in Argentina that God has given to you. And you are thankful that your life has been a gift to the missionary families and to the people of Argentina. You smile and wonder what next year will bring. When you are following Jesus, you never know!
You don’t have to just imagine Christmas in Argentina—you can be the gift for a missionary family. WGM Argentina desperately needs teachers willing to give a year or more investing in the lives of missionary kids. Will you ask God if this is the ministry to which He is calling you?
