~Our Last Lord's Day in Argentina~

This morning since most of our things are packed up... you can imagine getting ready for church was a little hectic.  It sounded like "Sunday Morning Scramble!"  You could hear "Has anyone seen Mary's shoes?" or "Where is that Chinese Hymnbook that we borrowed from the church, we need to take it back this morning" etc. (Mary only has one pair of shoes that fits her now...but here they are selling BOOTS for the coming winter, so I'm waiting 'til we get back to Colombia to buy her more shoes.)
~In church we all prayed for little Fabricio the baby boy who is to have heart surgery on March 26th. (He's also anemic.)~
~After church they had our family come up front and several prayed for us.  It was a special time.~
~Several brothers and sisters praying for us.~
~U. Charlie knew how to win little Mary so she'd let him hold her...he gave her candy. =)~
~The pastor (with the backpack) was talking to several kids including Sarah and Elijah.~
~Caroline and Me.  We had a good hug and cry when we said goodbye.  I told her that I now have another SISTER...who is Chinese. =)  She and her family have been such DEARS to us.  They are keeping our things for us.~
~Caro absolutely L.O.V.E.S. our Elijah.  So here, she was telling him goodbye for the umpteenth time. =)~
Thank you for your prayers for Elijah and Mary. They still have their colds. 
Plans have changed and we are leaving for the airport at midnight on Tuesday night.  (We'll just "camp-out" in the airport all night.  Our plane leaves at 6:45 A.M.) Please pray that at least the babies can get some sleep.  We have left a message for our landlady to come at 11:00 PM to see the apartment and give us our deposit back.
THANK YOU FOR PRAYING that we can get it all done!  (Packing the last few suitcases, weighing them, packing the last couple of boxes to store here, cleaning the apt. last minute, etc.)
