Julio are you? Mistaken identity leads to baptism

The Facebook equivalent of a wrong number led Julio Burgos to Christ.
Burgos, who lives in Florencio Varela, about 90 minutes from Buenos Aires, received a message on the social networking site from a church member in Colombia, who had confused Burgos with a friend of the same name.
The two became friends on Facebook and, when Burgos became interested in studying the Bible, the Colombian Christian referred him to someone he did know in Argentina — Pedro Soto, youth minister for the Caballito Church of Christ in Buenos Aires.
Burgos visited the church and later was baptized. Now he is a student at the Argentine Bible Institute, a ministry training school operated by church members.
“He now is in charge of ringing the bell between Sunday services and Bible class,” missionary Joel Banks said. “He also has a thirst for learning God’s word and spontaneously serves others.”
