The following is a story of birth; a church planted in Chile that is now going to give birth.
Antonio and Hélène Bascuñan are Fellowship International missionaries who have served in San Felipe, Chile, for the past decade. Chile is Antonio’s home country, but he spent many years living in Quebec where he met Hélène and raised two daughters. They pastored in Québec and spent two years in Medellin, Colombia on a short-term assignment (2002-2004) before heading to Chile.
I briefly chatted with the Bascuñans in June while they were on home assignment. It was heart-warming to hear their story of church planting in San Felipe. I’ll let the Bascuñans share their story:
“After nine years of hard work in the lovely town of San Felipe, we can say by the grace of God that His mercies on us were great when we look at our new church well constituted with a national pastor in place. Juan Torres is now leading the church accompanied by his wife and daughter. As for us, we have a new project!
“Some of you thought that we were retiring… not for now! We still have some years to give to our beloved Lord.
“We are currently on home assignment but will return to Chile to start a new work in Quillota (about one hour from San Felipe).”
The Bascuñans are available to share with your congregation about what God is doing through them in Chile.
Pray for the Bascuñans:
