    Argentina - Evangelising through Education

    by Benito Bongarra

    It all started 83 years ago, in a neighbourhood far from the centre of Buenos Aires. My father José Bongarrá, then a 17-year-old boy, began to spread the word of God in the vicinity of Villa Real; he started preaching in a 2 m² seed depository, which had been lent to him. The following week he had to look for larger premises. The work started growing: initially he rented a room and then had to build a new meeting place. In 1940, an autonomous Brethren Assembly was established. In 1945, José dedicated himself to working on the monthly Christian magazine, Pregonero Christiano (Christian Announcer) and then, in 1947, to a radio programme, Christian Meditations - all by His grace alone.
