The idea was to go to Argentina for 1 year
After receiving so much from God and from his friends and family, Jim decided to leave Ireland and go to Northern Argentina for 1 year giving thanks to the Lord for all he had received. However, the Lord had a different plan for him. After arriving and experiencing the poverty, he had to decide between leaving right away or throwing the timetable out the window and accepting the Lord’s call to stay for much more than 1 year. Now 10 years later, Jim has since founded his own mission in Oberá called Vía del Señor (The Lord’s Way) and married Silvina, a wonderful Argentine woman. Jim and Silvina live half the year in Ireland and half the year in Argentina.
