Hello everyone! I know it's been a couple of weeks since the last time I posted, but I wanted to fill you in on what's been going on around here lately!
The big thing of course right now is that we're in the midst of Holy Week. We had an excellent Palm Sunday service last Sunday. We then moved ahead to Maundy Thursday, where we reenacted the scene where Jesus washes his disciples' feet and then moved to a final supper together after which we celebrated the Holy Supper and stripped the church of its ornaments and glory, ending in prayer. Good Friday came with a solemn service at 3:00 PM, the hour when Jesus gave up his spirit to his Father. Tomorrow we are looking forward to celebrating the Lord's Resurrection and feasting his eternal life in the church and in our homes. All good times!
Unfortunately, our mission to the Parana River communities, scheduled for today, has been derailed and we'll have to find another time and way to do it. We are still scheduled however to head North this week (we leave Thursday) to spend a couple of weeks with the Wichi tribes in Northern Argentina. I am very excited about this trip, and I'm going to be spending the first part of this coming week making sure I'm ready, including buying Gluten-Free food and a decent sleeping bag.
I will probably be out of touch during those weeks given the inconsistency with which I will have internet access. Some astute person will probably say, "David, hasn't your internet access been rather inconsistent so far anyway?" The answer to that is that yes, it has been inconsistent, but my hope is that after getting out of the (proverbial or literal) bush that I will have a more stable and reliable internet connection set up here in Hurlingham from which to work. Please, please, please pray that this is the case!
I wish you all a blessed Holy Week, and a joyous Resurrection Sunday!
