Buenos Aires, Argentina

Félix Antonio Vargas may be best known from the film “From the Dark,” which chronicled his life before he found Christ as his Savior.

Recently, General Superintendent David W. Graves, in jurisdiction for the South America Region, and Louie E. Bustle, Global Mission director, named Vargas as field strategy coordinator for the region’s Central Field (Bolivia and Paraguay).

Vargas isn’t the only new field strategy coordinator as Manuel Lima was chosen to lead the new Brazil Northwest Field.

Lima and his wife, Lidia, currently serve on the Amazonas District in north Brazil. Lima began his ministry in 1986 and was ordained as an elder in 2004. Prior to serving on the Amazonas District, the Limas served as pastors for 24 years in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Manuel Lima also served as district superintendent when the district had 12,000 members.

Both Manuel and Lidia Lima were raised in pastors’ families. Their five children, Lucas, Raquel, Pedro, Mateo, and Cayo, have been a great help to their ministry by actively participating as part of the team.

Vargas, born in Colombia, is married to Liliana. The couple has three small children, Daniel José, Juan David, and Laura Sofía. Liliana witnessed to Félix while he was in prison. After his release Félix came to know the Lord.

Félix’s first ministry was as a cell group leader in the House of Prayer Church of the Nazarene in Cali, Colombia. After attending the Nazarene seminary in Quito, Ecuador, he and his family moved to Paraguay where they have been serving since 2009.

Prayer is requested for these new leaders as they make Christlike disciples across the South America Region.
