~An Argentine Grill-out!~

 Our friends Leo and Caro invited us to an "Argentine Asado"  (Grill-out!) that was to be held the Friday before Easter!
Now, this was only the 2nd BBQ we had gone to here in Argentina.  You see, Argentina is known for their meat...and their grill-outs are FILLED WITH LOTS of MEAT!!!  They just KEEP bringing out the yummy meat, which they serve with a Delicious special sauce called, "Chimichurri"!
Earlier in the week we found out the address, where to go, What day it was, and what to bring, only we MISSED one IMPORTANT detail...WHAT TIME it started on Friday!!!  =)
I'm sure that Leo probably told Phillip over the phone, but Phillip somehow missed it.  I kept telling Phillip, "WE HAVE TO FIND OUT WHEN THE GRILL-OUT IS!!"  We somehow had in our mind that it was FRIDAY EVENING!
So, Friday morning, having been up late the night before, and slept in that morning, we had just finished brunch, and having family devotions, when the phone rang.
I said to Phillip, "If that's Leo, PLEASE find out what TIME we are supposed to be at the Grill-out!"
Well, it WAS LEO asking us WHERE we were!?!!!!!
You see, the doors of the club they were renting opened at 10:00 A.M., it was now nearly 11:00 and Leo said that they were going to eat LUNCH around 12:00!!!  Talk about PANIC CITY!! =)
 So, we showered, cut up our salad, got everyone ready and by 11:45 the girls and I were in a taxi to find the club where it was to be held!
Jesus really helped us and thankfully when we got there they were still cleaning up the grills and fixin' to start grilling the meat.  =)
~We had a DELIGHTFUL day with our friends.
Our family REALLY enjoyed getting outside and AWAY from the schoolbooks.  =)

 ~DEAR Caro and Leo gave Elijah and Noah some coats that their son had out-grown.
We were SO THANKFUL TO THEM AND TO JESUS...for it's turning chilly  here, and we didn't have room to bring coats for hardly any of us. =)  What a blessing these coats are being!~

What a nice group of people. That looked like a lot of meat but I bet it all got eaten. I'm glad you had a nice grill out. Love and prayers

How neat that you got to be at an Argentine Grill Out with your Chinese friends! Benji and I read about those when we did our little unit study on Argentina when you went last time. He didn't think he would care for that since he's not a big meat fan; but, he would enjoy the party! :) Please give Caro a hug from Aunt Nesi and tell her that Benji and I will be praying for her ~ pain is not a fun thing to live with but Jesus DOES help us! :) Love you and can hardly wait til you get home! :)
