When a small group from Grabill Missionary Church (Grabill, Indiana) decided to adopt Nathan, Christina, and Marco Duran, World Partners staff in Argentina, they couldn’t have guessed how God would use their modest resources to build His Kingdom in Buenos Aires! The small group’s Christmas offering was initially expected to offer some extra funds to the Durans’ first Christmas celebration in Argentina, but a few unexpected complications resulted in the gift being sent after Christmas. Meanwhile, Nathan and Christina realized that God was telling them the money was not for them; He had another purpose for it.
Juan* is one of the men in a group Nathan has begun ministering with in Buenos Aires. The group meets weekly to pray and encourage one another. Juan had been going through a hard time financially. During one of their gathering times, Juan asked for prayer because several unexpected bills had come to light for his family, and they didn’t have the money to pay them. The group prayed together for provision.
Soon afterward, the delayed Christmas offering from the Grabill small group arrived, and the Durans knew God was asking them to give the money to Juan. When they did, everyone involved was excited to learn that the amount of the gift was the exact amount of the total of Juan’s family’s unexpected bills! What a joy it is to see God use his people to bless one another!
