(Chile CNSAM). On Wednesday night, February 7, 2015, the Rev. Alessandro Polonio was installed as District Superintendent of the Los Lagos District in Chile. The previous superintendent was the Rev. Alfredo Veloso, who died on January 10, 2015.
After a process that took several days of meetings and consultations, General Superintendent Dr. Jerry Porter announced through Dr. Christian Sarmiento, Director of the South America Region, the decision to appoint Rev. Polonio as District Superintendent.
Brother Alessandro Polonio, from Brazil, is a SAM missionary assigned to Chile as Integral Ministries Coordinator (CIM), a ministry he shares with his wife Cristiane, and accompanied by their daughters Rachel and Sarah.
At the installation service, there were performances by the churches that make up the district. The event was full of excitement as it also included the presence of our beloved sister Francisca “Panchita,” widow of Pastor Alfredo Veloso.
Brother Jaime Diaz Tolman was appointed assistant to the district superintendent.
We pray and trust that the Holy Spirit will guide the new superintendent, his assistant and the Church of this vast district to continue making Christlike disciples to the ends of the earth.
