Humberto was converted at the age of 21, and soon after felt called into the ministry. He works primarily with pastors, although he also teaches Bible students, ministers at marriage seminars to young people and military chaplains. He along with his wife Evelyn continue to work in the leadership in Cordoba, preparing materials for leadership, and others, to be used as the need arises.
Evelyn comes from a missionary family, having been born and raised in Argentina by missionary parents, Phil and Ruth Saint, who believed missions was for life. Evelyn is very familiar with mission life and work, having had to live between two cultures.
Humerto and Evelyn have been pastoring in the Assemblies of God, but have always had a burden for leadership and for their children. Together they feel that if the leadership is strengthened and encouraged, a whole congregation can be reached. This will allow the local church and ministry to grow and be able to do many projects, like: feeding children, reaching teenagers, evangelizing, etc. Humberto and Evelyn both know the difficulties of the ministry and know the (hidden) burdens and sorrows of pastors. Humberto has been part of the Pastoral Council of the city of Cordoba for the last 7 years: organizing retreats for pastors and wives, bringing the Focus on the Family Latin team to Cordoba in 2004, helping organize the yearly Fiesta del EspÃritu Santo that gathers 8,000 people in a covered stadium, preparing material for people to buy and use for their Bible studies. Evelyn writes regularly for the only national monthly Christian newspaper on family themes called “El Puente.” She also translates for visiting speakers from the States on different occasions. Humberto and Evelyn believe their main task is to equip, train, disciple and build up the local pastor or leader, just as they work on training and equipping their own leaders of their church congregation. They believe that the leadership’s purpose is to get the people to grow, be active, to fulfill their calling and to function in their gifts. A happy blessed leader can do so much more than a discouraged one. As teachers, Humberto and Evelyn frequently teach on family, raising children and marriage. At the present they have both started a 3 year course on family counseling to add to their present training.
