Outreach – Bariloche Day 5

After the new year break, we are now back in the church again, working as much as we can. Today most of the team helped out in the kitchen to make and sell empanadas, a specialty similar to a meat pie but much smaller, very common in Argentina. Miguel and I helped the pastor move a number of wooden walls that ranged in heaviness from a three-person to a ten-person wall. Some of them were too big to go through the main door, so we had to lift them over the top of a wall first and then carry them around to the back of the church.

After lunch the team went out visiting and I stayed back at the house to pray and prepare. In the evening Karley preached and we also performed a skit for the church. It was Karley’s first time preaching in Spanish, as she had always been translated before this, and it went really well. Everyone could understand what she was saying, which was encouraging.
