After spending two years learning thelanguage and culture in Peru, the Holtsarrived to Santiago, Chile in early 2005 tobegan in the ministry.
Shortly after arriving, they made plans tolaunch Faith Baptist Church. What startedwith a Bible study with a lady and her twochildren, has now grown to a thrivingautonomous congregation of well over150 people.In 2010, with Chilean pastors we hadtrained from the ﬁrst church, we plantedtwo more churches. It is thrilling to seenew believers grow to maturity and striveto reach their own people with thegospel.
THE KEY TO REACHING ACOUNTRY IS TO TRAIN THENATIONALS TO REACH THEIROWN PEOPLE.
Chile Baptist College
As men surrendered to preach, we quicklysaw the need to prepare them for theministry. In 2009, we started the ChileBaptist College to train young men andwomen for the work. Currently, we have8 men preparing full-time for the ministry.The young men are taking 16 hours of classes a week in the mornings whilegaining practical experience in theevenings soul-winning, discipling,preaching, and teaching.All three of the churches are beingpastored by one of the men we trained.
In the spring of 2012 we will be returningto Chile. We pray that God will allow uscontinue to prepare people for theministry and to start multiple churches.
