Matt and Helen Pope serve at Iglesia Providencia in Chile's capital, alongside mentoring local pastors.
Santiago has a population of over 7 million people but only a tiny proportion belong and serve in churches clearly proclaiming God’s word. At Iglesia Providencia, Matt is helping the pastor teach and train the church family to become a church-planting church. He also works with other pastors in the city, helping them to train their churches likewise.

Our life has changed since our last prayer letter. It has changed a lot because Chile has changed a lot!
We are happy, safe and well but all is not well in Chile. What started as a protest over a rise in metro fares escalated quickly into general unrest. In the last month over half of the metro stations have been burned down (including the ones near our house) along with churches, a university and many supermarkets and businesses. There are daily protests which stop the now very limited public transport, meaning travel home can sometimes take three hours!
