Last night Staci and I had some friends over to paint Easter eggs with! "Pascuas" is the Castellano word for Easter and they have different traditions here. Painting eggs isn't one of them. Neither is hiding eggs and finding them! So, naturally we did that too!

Decorating eggs!

The finished products!

I hid Staci's Santa in the stocking haha!

Belen searching for eggs!

Staci finding eggs left and right! She was like a lil kid in a candy shop!

Coti with (almost) all the eggs!

Of course afterwards we were hanging out and it got to be dinner time (most people eat dinner around 8 or 9 or 10) and we were like, lets eat eggs! Coti whipped up some "huevos rellenos" for us! 


It was a great evening and it was fun to share our traditions and it gave us a little taste of being home! This weekend is going to be full of celebration! On Friday we have a special Friday Servive, then on Saturday night we are having an all church movie night. THEN on Sunday we have our Easter Service followed by a potlock! Should be a full and fun weekend!

Happy Easter everyone!

Christ is RISEN!

weekend revival.

Thank you all for praying for the campaign that the covenant church's in Argentina put on this last weekend! There was a great turn out and so many volunteers and work got put into it being a success! I know that God used it to His glory and purpose as we saw new believers enter the kingdom and many who rededicate their lives to Christ!


There was a tent to the left of the stage with intercessors who prayed throughout the 3 day event!
What an amazing demenstration of "pray without ceasing!"

A lively group that was in the back worshiping and dancing!

The group from our church that prayed in the liberation corner!
The young man in the middle with the uniform on started the Portal of Hope church that
Fabian and Patricia are pastors of! 

Being a former techy, I know that these guys need props for 
all their hard work behind the scenes!

The kids corner! Making it a great event for the whole family!

Selling yummy foods!

Recruiting for Scouts kick off!

Twas a beautiful weekend full of joy and encouragement! I am honored to have been able to be a part of it!

prepping the predio.

This weekend is the Northern IPEA's (Evangelical Covenant Church of Argentina) big revival! The church has been working diligently to get the Predio ready and Staci and I were in charge of creating all the name tags for the pastors and volunteers working the event!

Last weekend we spent Saturday tarde (afternoon until dark) and Sunday manana (morning) helping mow/weedeat and rake up the grass at the Predio.

This is a phenomenon here that I have been wanting to document but hadn't gotten the chance until now. To cut large areas of land, you don't see tractors or riding mowers, or.. mowers for that matter. You often see lines of workers with weedeaters attached to them wacking off all the long grass! Thus, that's what happened last weekend as well! And of course, you have the grass baggers like us with their rakes and bags following close behind!

It was a long process, but it was nice to have the physical labor! And we were right at home since we had a lawn care business the summer before last! Who knew that it was just training to be a missionary in Argentina ^_^

The dedicated weedeaters!

 Raking away!

The bags of grass, not including the additional 10 from Sunday morning!

Putting up the sign!

I am a little late posting this! Last night was the opening night of the conference! I'll post pictures and send out my monthly update telling you how it went as soon as I can!

Bless you all and thank you for your continued prayers!
