Barr JohnstonsThe Barr Johnstons in Northern Argentina write with news of 26 people baptised after coming to faith.

There continues to be more evangelistic outreach in the Juarez area than in Salta. In Juarez, 10 new believers were baptized on Sunday 27th February… Please pray for them all, that they may grow in their faith and witness to others, and that the Lord may bring many of these friends’ relatives and workmates to know Him. Vicar Narciso is also evangelising and teaching evangelism, and is already thinking of preparing more possible baptism candidates. Pray for him in all this.

In Yema Vicar Tuqui is preparing 8 new believers for baptism, and in Quemado Vicar Juan is preparing another 8. These are the first 8 to be baptised in Quemado, though many more there have made a profession of faith in Jesus, and each Saturday they come regularly to meetings lead by Vicar Juan. The problem is that it is the first baptism, and many are fearful of it, which is not surprising, as this isolated village was full of superstition when we started regular meetings in about June 2001. The village is the centre for many who live in isolated houses where they look after their cattle. Some of these have also come to know the Lord. Please pray for Juan and the team he takes with him, which includes Sylvio and Juan’s son Cristian.
