We are headed to the Formosa Region of Argentina near the border of Paraguay where Carlos Radi serves as the District Superintendent for the Pueblos Originarios District, working with the native peoples of Argentina.
The church of the Nazarene has a clinic, a missionary school and a church in the town of Formosa which will be our home base while in the country.
To make the logistics of traveling with large teams a little easier, there is a good possibility that we will fly in and out of Asuncion, Paraguay, which is just across the border from Argentina about three hours from Formosa. This three-hour trip across the border will be logistically easier than the fifteen hour trip from Buenos Aires.
Formosa (Spanish pronunciation: [foɾˈmosa]) is the capital city of the Argentine province of Formosa, on the banks of the Paraguay River, about 1,200 km (746 mi) from Buenos Aires, on National Route 11. The city has a population of about 234,000 per the 2010 census.
Formosa is the hub of the provincial industry, that processes the product of its natural resources. The port that serves the Paraguay towards the Paraná River is the main transport means for the provincial production.
Notable sights of the city include the Nuestra Señora del Carmen Cathedral, the Government House, the Torelli Botanic Forest Garden, the Provincial History Museum (Museo Histórico Provincial), the Estadio Centenario football stadium, the Guaicole fauna reserve, the shore of the Paraguay River, the Isla de Oro Island, and the Central Square named after José de San Martín.
