The last few weeks have been filled with travel and activity. Paraguay hosted the CIID conference (Interamerican Conference of the Church of God). There were representatives from over 13 countries in Latin America!
Here are the Paraguayan representatives in their typical dress.
It was a five day conference packed with workshops, networking, worship services, good food and fellowship. We led a session on "Integral Mission." The next CIID conference will be held in Nicaragua in 2013.
On the tails of the CIID conference was our South American missionary conference in Montecarlo, Argentina. Sometimes you get so used to serving others, that you're not accustomed to being served. The local church treated us so well with local food (can you say BBQ). The missionaries came from Haiti, Colombia, Bolivia and Belize and the Ecuadorian group missed their flight. We had some meetings and time for site seeing as well. After being to the Iguazu Falls 89 times (not really, but at least 20 times) we finally got to see them from the Argentinian side and were we ever impressed!
