100 years!

Yesterday my brother sent me a link to a website of the Argentine branch of the denomination my parents ministered with 40+ years. Recently the 100 year anniversary celebration took place in Rio Cuarto its birthplace. He knew I would love to see the photo-review and read the story.
A century ago a young couple and their two little girls, four and two years of age, arrived in Argentina after weeks at sea. Now there are at least 20 churches in Argentina, missionaries in other neighboring countries, and thousands who have followed Christ as a result of their obedience.

I have so enjoyed the Candle in the Corner giveaway (see my sidebar, BTW it ends today so get onboard!). Every day I looked forward to becoming acquainted with yet another young couple spreading light and love in another area of the world. All of them young. (Well maybe with the exception of my brother and SIL, but their zest for life places them in the young-at-heart category.) It is very exciting to imagine the fruit of their labor 100 years from now!

Another memorable 100 year milestone took place in August. I didn't hear about it till more recently. Theda Krieger, the founder of Child Evangelism in Argentina, celebrated her 100th birthday. My parents tell me that she was the one who led me in my first prayer to invite Jesus into my heart.

My worshipful response is found in Ephesians 3:20-21.

wow! I did love reading about it on Kim's blog.

So wonderful that the woman who led you in your salvation prayer turned 100! Is she in good health? Still living in Argentina?
