Corrientes is the capital city of the province of the same name.  It is located in the northeastern section of Argentina on the boarder of Paraguay.  It is an old city established in the 1500’s.  It is a large city also with a population of over 358,000 people. This is around the size of Cleveland, Ohio. The province of Corrientes has a population of over 992,000.   Before the Spanish conquest, the area of Corrientes was inhabited by the Guaraní people.  You can read about them here.

The city sits on the Paraná River.  The name Corrientes literally means “currents” in Spanish.  It sits across the river from its twin city Resistencia. I wrote about that city here. 

We know of at least two national pastors in the city of Correintes, and an another one that is located in the province.  I’m not sure if there are any missionaries there or not.  Pray for these pastors ministering here.  Pray that more men would be trained and sent out to establish more Baptist churches in this needy area.
