Shawn & Emily Bateman in Argentina

Shawn & Emily Bateman have served in Rosario, Argentina, since 2018 and started Victory Baptist Church. Due to a recent increase in COVID cases and overloaded hospitals, all meetings have been prohibited in Argentina. The last time the Batemans were able to have an in-person church service was May 16. 

Despite the lockdown, Shawn and Emily have continued with one-on-one discipleship, counseling, and visitation. Praise the Lord, four people were saved this week! They also started a Bible institute just a few weeks before the new restrictions were put in place and continue to hold classes virtually.

This coming week, more businesses will be permitted to open back up in Argentina. The Batemans are praying that churches will soon follow. Pray with us that COVID cases will decrease in Argentina and quarantine restrictions would be lifted!
