First, in case you heard on the news that there was a serious TRAIN WRECK here in Argentina...we are FINE and weren't on that train.
So far they are listing around 49 deaths and 550 wounded.
We do ride the train a lot but we have always taken a different line. All the trains here do seem to be pretty rickety though. Phillip reminded our family today while we were talking about it, that it sure does pay to be ready to go; one never knows what each day holds.
~PLEASE PRAY FOR THE HURTING from this wreck!
~My Grandma (nearly 105) is very low, and would appreciate your prayers, as would my parents.
~Please pray as we try to wrap things up here in Argentina, pack our suitcases for Colombia, give away, pack up to store, etc. One of our dear friends here has offered to keep some things for us while we are back in Colombia. PRAISE THE LORD FOR ANSWERED PRAYER...for that was one of my prayer requests months ago! =)
~A lady named Alice came to the Chinese church this past Sunday. After church she was talking to me and told me that her parents are elderly and that when they die she will have no one and and she is so lonely. I hugged her and prayed for her right there while she wept. If you think of Alice please pray for her.
~A couple weeks ago Phillip was invited to speak to the Chinese youth. This Sunday afternoon we have invited that whole youth group over to our house. Please pray that God will bless this effort to touch their lives for him.

One of the main things we wanted to find for our girls here in Argentina was a good piano and violin teacher. A few weeks ago we found 2 wonderful piano teachers for Kimberly and Sarah. (A lot of musicians do not like to teach their own children music...and I'm one of them. =)
WE TAKE A TRAIN EVERY WEEK TO THEIR LESSONS AND OUR STOP IS AT THE END OF THE LINE. (The train wreck here was also at the end of a line...when the train couldn't stop!)
~I made and braided a loaf of french bread to take to the piano teachers. They are a Mother-son team. The mother is like a sweet grandmother and teaches Sarah and the man teaches Kimberly.~
These piano teachers are very good and caring too. Our girls are very happy!
They also know a good violin teacher to recommend for us when we get back here, Lord willing. We are GLAD that Jesus has provided 2 wonderful piano teachers for our girls! God is AWESOME!~
