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!
