Hopeful Thoughts

Present Whirlwind

What a week it’s been!

Sunday was out last team meeting before our departure date for Argentina.

Monday night we got the keys to our new rental house and began the process of moving in. This meant LOTS of cleaning, as the house has been inhabited by college students for the last few years. We cleaned until 2:30 in the morning!

Tuesday was official moving day. With lots of help from these guys and some dear friends, we were able to get nearly everything out of the apartment by midnight!

Wednesday I returned to the apartment to finish cleaning and get the last little bit of stuff. I had to tutor part of the afternoon, but spent the rest of my day lining the kitchen cabinets with contact paper.

Thursday was supposed to be designated to catch up on details for Argentina. I had to attend a Substitute teacher orientation for 4 hours in the middle of my afternoon. It is now nearly 2:00 in the morning and I’m at least packed for the trip. There are still a few plans that need to be fleshed out. Please pray that my lessons come together in time.

We depart Friday evening for Buenos Aires. We will be leading four Sunday school classes to train the teachers and parents, doing child evangelism around town at local churches and hopefully the orphanage, and anywhere else the Lord leads us. We will also do a little bit of Bible Training, Titus II, and some “home improvement” type projects.

Please continue to pray that God would be glorified in many ways. Please pray for the team members and the members of the churches we will be working with. Please pray for personal things for team - physical, financial, and emotional needs. Pray that we would be flexible and would wholly depend on God for making sure everything happens as it should, and be quick to give Him the glory.
