ASOCIACION CIVIL CRISTIANA CONGREGATIONAL
Rev. Teodoro Stricker and his wife, Teresa, have served the Congregational Church of Jardin, America, for 30 years. Concerned with the plight of the thousands of poor Spanish descendants living in poverty on the outskirts of the city, Rev. Stricker began mission work ten years ago to bring the gospel as well as social concern to these people.
The Mission’s primary goals are: To bring the life changing news of Jesus Christ to all people through preaching the Gospel, to share the love and compassion of Christ through spiritual nurture and material assistance, and to help families become self sufficient and gain self-respect.
Rev. Stricker and members of his church have started five mission outposts around the countryside to help meet the spiritual and social needs of the community. On any given week, three to five hundred children and adults attend the worship services, Sunday Schools, and community outreach programs offered by the mission. Partnership Children are available for individuals and churches to support. A monthly gift of $40 will help these children with basic needs as well as help with job training which is greatly needed. Each Partnership Child will correspond with their sponsor over the course of the year.
A new church building, measuring 12 by 18 meters, has been completed. God’s Garden Project is a community garden where residents are taught how to grow fruits, vegetables, and raise livestock. Teaching self-sufficiency is the goal of the Garden Project. The Argentine Mission has opened a medical clinic to assist with medical needs of impoverished and elderly. Rev. Dr. Harding Stricker, son of the mission directors, serves as the clinic physician.
