(Argentina CNSAM). October 3, 2015, the Church of the Nazarene in the Capitán Sarmiento province of Buenos Aires, Argentina celebrated the reopening of its doors in a new church building. Framed with great joy and a spirit of unity, they celebrated the newly renovated facilities on 1047 Urioste Street.
This event was held to announce to those living in Capitán Sarmiento that the Church of the Nazarene is there to serve them and give glory to God, just as the missionaries Cochran and Hendrix dreamed back in the 1930’s. Everyone in the area knows this Church of the Nazarene since it was the first church in the town that was not Catholic. In January 2017, it will have been there 85 years.
A Work and Witness group called the Protagonists was in charge of organizing the event which included a time for entertainment, games and prizes for the children. The event concluded with blues-rock band “Vida y Vuelta” and a message from the Word of God by Rev. Esteban Durán.
All of those in attendance brought a nonperishable food item to benefit the orphanage Nuestra Señora del Pilar. The orphanage director publicly thanked the group for all they did and emphasized the joy that she saw on the faces of the children as a result of the care received. The twelve children from the orphanage who attended were also moved by the event being held for their benefit.
It was an amazing evening where everything was done with love, and God was there.
* The Protagonists are a team of men and women of any age who promote and focus on social service with a Christian vision.
