(Ecuador CNSAM). The first members of the 40/40 church planting team for Córdoba, Argentina have arrived in Quito, Ecuador.
On the evening of January 8, 2015, one missionary from the United States and four missionaries from Argentina arrived in Quito, Ecuador, where they will be trained over the next several months. Rachel Gilmore, Romina Celeste Calderón, Juan Ricapito, Ana Garcia, and Damaris Obando make up half of the 40/40 missionary team being deployed to Córdoba, Argentina. The rest of the 40/40 missionaries will arrive in the next eight weeks. The five missionaries joined their cluster support family, Aric and Kimberly Bidwell and their three boys, who had been in Ecuador since July studying Spanish.
During their time in Ecuador, the North Americans will be learning Spanish at NILI (Nazarene International Language Institute), and the Argentines will be taking classes at the Nazarene Theological Seminary South American. After training in Ecuador and Colombia, the team will move to Córdoba on May 21 to begin planting a church in the second largest city in Argentina. This is the 83rd church plant with Extreme Nazarene Missions.
