At South, we take the Great Commission - to go into the world and make disciples - seriously! South supports missionaries throughout the world under the oversight of the Missions Committee.
Currently the Missions Committee is responsible for the oversight of:
1. Denis and Robbie Ruiz; Puerto La Cruz, Venezuela
Denis and Robbie Ruiz returned to Venezuela in February 2003 after 15 years in Baton Rouge. Denis is originally from Caracas, Venezuela and worked in the ministry in Caracas from 1979 to 1987. Robbie grew up in the mission field as a "missionary kid" in Vincenza, Italy. Denis and Robbie will be working with the congregation in Puerto la Cruz, Venezuela which is a sister city to Barcelona, Venezuela
2. David and Ana Guaicara; Barcelona, Venezuela
David Guaicara became a Christian at South Baton Rouge in 1983. He and his wife (Ana) were an active part of our Spanish Ministry. Both of them are from Barcelona, Venezuela. After graduating from LSU they returned home and began to worship with the Church of Christ that had previously been established in that area. In 1992 David began to work full time in the ministry with the local congregation. We feel it has been a tremendous blessing to our congregation to be involved with the mission efforts in this region of Venezuela for many years.
