Under a blazing sun, the 300 people who came to this party, were filled with great emotion, as they listened to testmonies, took part in praise and gave God the glory for the great things He has done here. Once again, this lovely park left its mark on many hearts, all because one man, GWI founder, John André, dared to take a risk to make a difference. Ever the visionary, he believed in the potential this beautiful park could have to build up the church in Buenos Aires. Now, so many years later, hundreds of thousands have escaped the swirl of the big city to meet with God at weekend retreats and camps in this peaceful park. Countless lives have been transformed through the Gospel, churches enjoy holding training seminars and everyone delights in the many outdoor activies.
Omar Abal, Director of El Sembrador, explains, «This 40th anniversary inspires us deeply as we remember the many lives that have been touched by the Good News of Jesus. For years, El Sembrador has been highly important to me personally. Why? I have a strong desire to serve and encourage the churches in Argentina. This park is a holy place where believers can experience fellowship with God.»
