Argentina: 'Mateada' missionary

Nazarene Missions International of the Central Argentine District organized a training event called “Mateada” Missionary in May with the purpose of transcending the culture like the Argentine mate (a traditional drink), providing ministerial resources, and communicating a vision for cross-cultural mission training.

Approximately 50 participants attended the event, held at Seminario Teológico Nazareno del Cono Sur, including local NMI leaders, pastors, and those called to participate in Maximum District Missions.

"The hope of this event was to enrich ministerial missionary growth in the district by taking advantage of various forms of communication and joint training," Priscila Soria said. "Let us pray for this ministry so that they continue to receive God’s guidance."
