News of the Holy Work in Central and South America
Central & South America Coordination Center
Central and South America, also known as Latin America, has 34 countries: Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Panama, Cuba, Haiti, Dominican Republic, Jamaica, Trinidad and Tobago, Barbados, Greenwood, Commonwealth of Dominica, Saint Lucia, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Bahamas, Guyana, French Guiana, Suriname, Venezuela, Colombia, Brazil, Ecuador, Peru, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Bolivia, Chile, Argentina, Paraguay, Uruguay, Belize, Antigua and Barbuda. There are more than 10 colonies and regions still under the rule of the United States, Britain, France, and the Netherlands. Therefore, there is a total of about 40 countries and regions.
Since 1980, the gospel of our church has spread here. Under the grace of God, the gospel sprouted and rooted in some regions, so churches, prayer houses, and worship locations were established within some countries in Central and South America.
Last June, a worship location was established in Mexico City. Currently 15 members from China gather together in this location. Chinese from various provinces and regions in China have been populating in this city, and many of them are thirsty for the truth. Therefore, our believers who live in Mexico also often spread the gospel to these immigrants. Since it is hard to achieve evangelical and pastoral works without a fixed worship location and assigned workers’ assistance, during a workers’ pastoral visitation in June, all believers decided to establish a worship location in Mexico City. We hope that GA can assign workers over here, so the holy works can be smoothly carried out to glorify God’s name.
Current update of Dominican Republic: After church dedication in 2016, for the need of holy work, the members unanimously passed a proposal to rent another worship location in the capital of Santo Domingo. After renting the location, the equipment and facilities were provided by our believers. Thank God! We have one more site for spreading the gospel.
The holy work in South America proceeds according to the annual work plan. The spiritual quality of our believers is gradually raised up in a steady manner. Assigned preachers’ assistance to Argentina Church in May and June brought a great inspiration and encouragement towards Argentina Church.
Central and South America is considered a pioneering area, and many lands still remain unconquered. We ask God to send more workers to this place for spreading the gospel so all nations can receive salvation and the truth can be circulated to the ends of the earth, as the mission the Lord entrusted us for glorifying His name.
