Argentina, Days 8 & 9

Friday & Saturday, October 5 & 6, 2007
Dear Friends and Family

We leave today. All week I had planned to have a piece of this delectable chocolate cake that they set out for breakfast. Wouldn’t you know, on this last day they didn’t have it! I substituted with a small chocolate tart.

Because of differing flight schedules, we leave Mar del Plata in stages. How odd it feels to say good-bye to some and not to others. Reminds me a bit of camp when I was a kid. We’ve exchanged business cards and e-mail addresses. We feel God would have us stay connected with some.

Our schedule for the day includes a 6 hour bus ride to Buenos Aires, a 6 hour wait at the airport, a 10 hour flight to Houston, TX, an hour rush to go through customs and meet our next flight, and a 2 ½ hour flight to Mpls/ St.P. Oh my!

So, why did we have to go all the way to Argentina and spend all that money? Mostly, because we felt the Lord say, “GO!” We felt God would teach us (which He did), give us more Kingdom connections (which He did), and impart to us the faith and grace to make the next steps for our personal lives, the church, and the city (which He did). We’re still digesting a lot. Pray that we don’t get indigestion!

Loving you and looking forward to being with you again,
