"Give thanks to the Lord, call on his name; make known among the nations what he has done, and proclaim that his name is exalted." Isaiah 12:4
Successful trip to Tucuman

Last month I went to Tucuman to speak at a theological conference, along with two others who also work for Seminary Carey, pastor Sam Masters and pastor Juan Leyton. Tucuman is 6 hours north of Córdoba by car, and is the 5th largest metropolitan city in Argentina. We were invited by Raul Oliva, who is a pastor of the church which put on the conference. Several years ago Raul was preaching a false gospel, with a focus on temporary blessings in this life.  God convicted his heart of this, and decided to change his teaching and the church changed, with many members leaving. In one of our conversations, Raul told me he was so grateful for us to visit him, as he sometimes feels like he is alone.  In fact, although "theologically sound" churches are in the minority, and often hard to find, many  pastors and leaders are starting initiatives to work together to plant more sound churches and to be able to form a network for sharing resources.

Interested to know about the life of our students at the seminary?
Here is a video I made with Alejandro Grande. His story is very typical of our students.

Upcoming annual conference in October: "The work yet to be done."

Every year near the end of October, our Seminary holds an annual conference. This year's conference will be focused on missions, with the motto being "The work yet to be done." This is our biggest event of the year, so we have been busy these days getting ready.  I will be speaking at one of the sessions to young adults, with the topic being specifically about the need to reach university students. We have a special invited speaker coming from the United States, Dr. David Sills, who is a professor at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. 
We thank God for our healthy baby girl, Lucy.
 

Thank you!

Scott and Sofía Jackson
