We had just arrived from our home assignment time and we got word of a big event coming up for the Argentina Central District: the San Antonio de Areco pic-nic.
This is an annual event that gathers the churches from the Argentina Central District for a day of fellowship, sharing, amusement and evangelism.

In spite of a night forecasting a wet day, the day started with a wonderful sunshine. From different parts of the district, buses and private cars began to arrive. Of course, the indispensable asado (barbecue) and choripan (sausage in bread) did not miss the event. As for us, in the good Portuguese way, we took some sandwiches and chips...
After many games, including a soccer tournament, of which our local church in Altos de Pilar came out as champion, we had a great celebration service with the presentation of the gospel. Many people received the Lord as their savior in this day and are now being followed by their local churches.
