URGENT!!! Missionary and wife robbed at gunpoint in Argentina

I just read this on Austin Gardner’s blog. Jeff Bush is a great friend of mine. Read below about what happened to his family and how you can help.


I just got off the phone with missionary Jeff Bush in La Plata, Argentina. They were just robbed in their home at gunpoint. If you remember Mindy is pregnant. Two thieves met them as they opened the door to their garage and home.

They put a gun to Mindy’s head. They stole their wedding rings, engagement ring, both laptop computers, camera, cell phone, jewelry, all the cash in both dollars and pesos that they had, which was about $1,000.

The thieves went into the house. They grabbed the necklace around Mindy’s neck and were going to jerk it off but were kind enough to take it off as they held the gun to her head.

There were two men and with two guns. They were told that if they report this to the police that they will come back and steal the baby, Alexandra.

This is a horrible set back. They have lost down to their wedding rings. They have been held at gun point, they were threatened. The $1,000 was money that is needed for ministry needs this week and must be taken out in cash so it is gone.

They are ok. That is the good news. Mindy, Jeff, and the girls are all ok. But this will be a scare for the family as you know.

Will you pray for them? Would you consider giving a love offering to help get their rings, their computers, camera, etc.

If you want to send a special offering you can send it to
