Month: December Year: 2010

Joy is love exalted; peace is love in repose; long-suffering is love enduring; gentleness is love in society; goodness is love in action; faith is love on the battlefield; meekness is love in school; and temperance is love in training.Dwight L. Moody


Dearest friends,

As we finish the year 2010, we can say Praise God! He has been faithful to us during the year and we anticipate many challenges for 2011, which is why Moody’s quote is so timely. We are always “in training”! But we continue to press on to what the Lord has ahead for us, as it is our joy!

The family photo below was at Sebastian’s high school graduation. This year he’s finishing his first year in Business Administration, and is already planning his future projects. Nathalie is finishing her hair dressing course, and is working part time with a Christian hair dresser from church, a work she thoroughly enjoys. Ariel is finishing his master’s degree in Cultural Management, which has led him to work on a project for blind people presented in November at the Córdoba University. Ari was invited to a Buenos Aires television show in September, in which he interviewed two great Argentine actors, Federico Luppi and Leonardo Sbaraglia, in the photo below with Ari (at the right), along with the poster of Sbaraglia’s last movie . Ari currently is working on cultural events, and hosting a live radio program.

To sum up the year 2010:
Humberto and I spoke at six marriage events in our city, teaching on subjects like Creativity in Marriage, Finances and Functional Families. Two of these events were held in city hotels, to reach new people. Humberto preaches several times a year at other congregations.  I taught at several events for women, mostly challenging them to live to their potentiality. I also completed two booklets for parents, and have started another one on Biblical women. We also had two weddings, like the photo with Roxana and Matías. On two opportunities I had the privilege of praying for the governor’s wife, and Humberto and I have also been with government officials, through projects that are being carried out in our city through a friend in the government. Humberto continues to be Secretary of the Pastoral Council in Córdoba, working on projects that bless our city, organizing pastoral breakfasts and events and such. We have organized several activities to bless poor neighbourhoods, visited children’s homes, and collected clothes and food to give to specific needs of poor congregations.

Argentina is famous for its “dulce de leche” jam, which is used for decorating cakes, to spread on bread, and such. Place 2 litres (8 cups) of milk and 3 cups of sugar and a teaspoon of soda in a stainless steel pot. Cook for one and a half hour (or more, until it thickens), stirring with a wooden spoon. Add a teaspoon of vanilla. Cool and enjoy! (To help the dulce de leche cook without burning, you can add some marbles in the pot while it is cooking to help with the stirring. But don’t forget to watch and stir during the process!)

We have a serious financial challenge for 2011. We pray the Lord may raise donors for this coming year. We are praying for a regular income of U$ 2,000 for us to be able to expand our work here and enable more projects to happen. But we thank the Lord for those who have continued to give and share!

So, be blessed as you finish your year 2010 and begin a new 2011, full of the promises and challenges from the Lord! And have a wonderful Christmas!
