Update on Last Night's Radio Broadcast

Thank you to each of you that prayed for me last night.  I wanted to give you an update on how things went and a few follow-up prayer requests. 
First of all, let me give you a little brief history on the radio station.  Gustavo began a radio ministry several years ago in Buenos Aires as an outreach tool.  After moving to this area, an owner of a local FM secular station in Dina Huapi, heard of the experience Gustavo had and asked him to do a morning show.  Gustavo agreed on the condition that the program would focus on Jesus.  In a short time, they began airing that program twice a day.  At that point an FM station from Bariloche (Christian), requested the recordings and began to air them twice a day.  He has now set up his own simple studio in the bathroom of the small store he owns.  Both stations put him on the air at no cost to him, and frequently give him the whole night of programming, or even Saturdays.  This is something only God could have done.
God has given him favor with local authorities and government officials in Dina Huapi and surrounding areas as a result of his ministry.  He not only reaches out through media but also through personal contact with those who write in while he is on air.  Just last night a couple wrote in asking that he come to give them counsel on their marriage as they are having marital problems.
God gave me the opportunity to share the message He had laid on my heart from Sunday on Matthew 5.  I was able to share my testimony and about our calling to the Patagonia during the interview with Gustavo.  But perhaps the greatest blessing was for me to see Gustavo's passion for sharing Christ with people and how he cares for those in the listening audience.  He has a real desire to see a church started in Dina Huapi and to minister to families.  Here is a man who is using everything he has for Kingdom purposes.  Please pray for him. 
Today, I received a very humbling request from Gustavo to pray about having a weekly 30 minute spot for Bible study over the radio.  I am blown away at this possibility.  Please pray with me for God's direction and leading.  To God be the glory.
