We have entered into a partnership with Church Planting Argentina, a group of like-minded churches in Argentina. Each year a group of youth, parents, and other adults goes to Argentina during spring break to participate in evangelism campaigns with these churches. We break up into small teams with local church members and go into a neighborhood on the outskirts of Buenos Aires where the church is seeking to start a new church. We share the gospel door-to-door, or by appointment, or at special evening events. God has allowed us to see a new church start in one neighborhood, and we are currently working in a second neighborhood to help start a church there.
The people of Haiti have suffered political, economical, and natural disasters that have left this country the poorest in the Western Hemisphere. In January of 2010 a 7.0 magnitude earthquake devastated much of what little economic infrastructure did exist. There are still over 300,000 homeless men, women, and children. Over half the Haitian people practice voodoo.
In January of 2012, Bethel sent our first team to Haiti. We saw the physical and spiritual needs of the people and felt God calling us to be a part of His work there. We work along side Until The Whole World Knows and Our House of Hope Ministry in Port-au-Prince, Haiti.
