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.

 

The command is simple- to go and make Christ-like disciples in the nations. We are part of a global denomination that believes in sending people from around the world to spread the Good News of Jesus Christ

The Oregon Pacific District is the strongest mission-giving, mission-sending district in the Church of the Nazarene. While there have been many teams from local churches send teams throughout the years, there has not been an NMI sponsored, District-Wide Work and Witness trip for quite some time. We are excited about coming TOGETHER ON MISSION to spread the Good News of Jesus Christ to the great people of Argentina

We hope to engage in four areas of ministry while in the country; Evangelism, Construction, Leadership Training, and Medical. Specifics about projects are still being planned and more details will be posted as they become available.

Whether you are a veteran at Work & Witness or you have never been out of the country, this trip is for you! With the variety and scope of the projects, there is space for people of all skill levels with all different giftings. The main requirement for the trip: to have an open and willing heart!

The cost for the trip will be $2,500-$3,000 and will include: airfare – transportation, lodging and meals in country – administrative costs – insurance – fun day excursion to Iguazu Falls. Extra spending money is suggested but not required ($250 would be plenty)

While we are looking forward to having a great group of people from around the Oregon Pacific District go to Argentina, we realize that physical travel is not always possible for everyone. However, there are opportunities to be a part of the team through financial contributions. There are two directions that your money could go…

1. Project Funds – We have a goal as a district of sending $25,000 for project finds which would cover everything from building materials to evangelistic and pastoral resources and medical supplies.

2. Individual Participant Sponsorship – We encourage everyone to be involved in supporting the work of missions, and a great way to stay engaged is in supporting a local individual with funding for their participation. The cost can be a significant hindrance for many willing participants but the support of individuals and churches in providing funds can greatly ease this burden. Additionally, you gain the benefit of knowing precisely whom you helped to send and can request a follow-up report after the trip. Check with your local church missions director to connect with someone in your area and encourage them with fundraising help.

 

The most important aspect of our trip to Argentina is prayer. Perhaps you are unable to go or to give financially, but we would invite you to pray for the trip. Pastor Darin Olson from Junction City will be bringing leadership to this important part of our trip. Throughout the months leading up to the trip, he will be communicating different prayer needs that you can add to your prayer list.

 

If you would like to be a part of the Juntos 2020 prayer team, I would invite you to email Pastor Darin Olsen at Juntos2020Prayer@orpac.org to be added to our prayer information updates.
