Missionary of the Week: Eduardo Buldain; Field Coordinator, Hispanics for

eighteen that Eduardo heard God's call for his life, to serve Him by planting
churches. For more than thirty years, Eduardo has been doing this all across
Argentina. He has taught church planting at Word of Life Bible Institute in
Buenos Aires, Argentina, and mentored many young pastors. In Buenos Aires,
pastors are being prepared at the Pastor Training Center, which Eduardo
founded. They have been training pastors since 2010, equipping them for
ministry and sending them out to serve in churches across Latin America. Pray
for Eduardo and his ministry through Hispanics for Christ. To learn more about

Pray for the Persecuted Church: Pakistan
Aliza, a 1-year-old girl, lost her foot as a result of an injury suffered in the Dec.
17 Quetta church bombing that killed 11 people and seriously injured 50 others.
Four suicide bombers approached the Bethel Memorial Methodist Church during a
children’s Christmas celebration, but only one bomber managed to set off his
explosives at the church entrance. The vigilance of church security personnel
prevented the bombers from entering the sanctuary and causing more
casualties among the 400 believers inside. Pray for the complete healing of
Aliza’s wounds and for her emotional well-being, and pray for her parents as
they care for her and nurture her faith. Also pray for those who lost loved ones
and for the others injured in the blast.
Please continue to pray for the Search Committee as they continue their
search for a permanent pastor at GBC. Pray that God will be preparing the
person that we need.
