11 Mar South America: A New Partnership and a New Initiative Featured

The effort will begin with nine months in Buenos Aires, Argentina — part of the Southern Cone — at the invitation of Sebastian and Sarai Serra, leaders of the church there. Steve and Diane were part of two separate mission teams to Buenos Aires, and hope to connect with past members, build bridges in that city as well as provide added support to the Serras. In 2015 the plan involves the Browns returning to Nashville for three months before going again to South America to work with the churches in the Andean Group. In this phase, they will focus on training leaders, with a special emphasis on working with mature disciples with a goal of seeing elders appointed. To this point there are no elders in any of the churches in South America.
We are grateful for their inspiring example, with Steve dealing with MS and Diane giving up her work as a nurse practitioner. We are confident that the churches in South America will be helped by this new faith chapter in their lives.
