After visiting Mexico, Guatemala, Panama y Peru during the last week, P. Ron & Sh. Dervilla Ward and P. John Seo visited Bolivia, Argentina and Brazil encouraging our coworkers with the word of God. P. Ron delivered his inaugural message (a shortened version) 11 times in different chapters with the translation of Sh. Dervilla into Spanish. Also they had deep conversation times with missionaries, local and next generation leaders. The conversation with Brazilian younger leaders lasted more than 3 hours and finished after midnight. The trip to visit the seven countries in 12 days was very hard. But they could complete their mission trip successfully by the grace of God. P. Ron and Sh. Dervilla returned to Chicago while P. John Seo went to Venezuela on Sep 16. P. Ron and Sh. Dervilla will leave for Africa on Sep. 20 to join the four African regional conferences. Please pray for their trip to Africa to support the conference and encourage our leaders.
