If every Sunday were Pentecost in Argentina, with 3,000 people saved each Sunday, how long would it take for the entire country to be converted? To answer this question let’s do some math. First–what is the population? That answer will be different depending on who you ask. Estimates are from 41 million to 44 million, so lets go with a conservative 42 million. Of course, some are already saved in Argentina, and there are estimates that even 6% to 9% of the country’s population are evangelical Christians. So let’s say that all the evangelicals are saved and say that is 3.5 million people. That still leaves 38.5 million people left to be saved, and to place that population size into perspective it is the equivalent of the combined populations of the states of Alabama, Tennessee, Georgia, North and South Carolina, Virginia and West Virginia.
Two hundred and forty-three years is the answer to our question. By the way, this is how long it would take to reach the current population and it is not taking into account population growth. Jesus said in Luke 10:2 “The harvest truly is great, but the labourers are few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth labourers into his harvest.” Will you pray today that God would raise up more laborers for the field of Argentina?
