We have time to send one more quick update as we prepare to head back home. Well, we are actually on our way home now, in a delayed kind of way. We left our host home at 2am this morning, got delayed in Santiago thanks to fog, missed our connecting flight in Panama City, and now on a late flight tonight to San Francisco. Phew! We are scheduled to land at midnight tonight, then make our way through Customs, grab an Uber to my car, and then a 2 hour drive back to Rocklin. Lord willing, we’ll be there by about 3:30-4:00 am!
Team Chile had very busy days at the end of our trip. The photos are from our trip to southern Chile and the Pawenche people. On Saturday Mario and Miranda visited and served at a hospital in Santiago. Saturday evening they were at a church youth service. Both are staying with host Chilean families and are loving time with the local people. I (David) spent the day Saturday teaching Chilean and Argentine pastors. The experience was so rich and varied for us all! Construction, pastoral care, home visitation, youth soccer, youth Bible Studies, and closing out with Youth services.
Thank you for your prayers and support as we served the people of Chile! We look forward to sharing more photos and stories in person soon!
-David, Miranda, & Mario
