September was pretty low key, with regular meetings, discipleships, etc. However, October was packed with many things: We traveled to the province of CORDOBA for a conference, so we took off a couple of days before we needed to and had a mini family vacation. We thoroughly enjoyed spending time with each other just relaxing and having fun. We were thankful that our church family back home did well for themselves on their first Sunday without us. It’s always great to know they can do it on their own, even though they did say they missed us.
After our mini vacation, we headed into the capital city of Cordoba for a yearly CONFERENCE which we usually attend, to listen to good preaching, meet new missionaries and pastors, and fellowship with others serving in the southern cone of South America (Chile, Argentina, and Uruguay). The host church put on a wonderful conference, even feeding those who attended at no cost! They were truly a blessing to everyone in how they served. And of course we left thoroughly blessed and encouraged to hear about all God is doing in and around our little corner of the world.
We celebrated MOTHER’S DAY once again this October, here in Argentina. This was the second Mother’s Day event we planned, and we were so very encouraged to have 28 mothers and daughters in attendance! Almost all of our women were present, including four brand new visitors, who heard the Gospel message! Please pray for these women: Florencia, Milagros, Liz, and Lucia to come to know the Lord as their Savior. Also, for Miriam, the mother of one of our youth, who comes to special events, but has not yet made a decision for Christ.
