Fun Fact about Argentina

Ushuaia is the southernmost city in Argentina and has long been referred to as the southernmost city in the world. (Chile does have land that extends further south and recently claimed the military outpost of Puerto Williams as a “city” to try to claim the southernmost title. There is friendly competition between these two countries as they both are always trying to one-up the other.) Ushuaia is located along the Beagle Channel in the province of Tierra del Fuego and has a population of about 60,000 people. It is a big tourist destination with ski resorts and penguin colonies, although it also has an industrial port. The city was founded in 1884 and gets its name from the native Yaghan word meaning deep bay. The southernmost railway in the world extends down to this city.

Week in Review

Praise the Lord that Emma’s oral surgery went well and was less extensive than the doctor originally thought it needed to be. On Sunday, we kicked off a missions conference in Indiana with a wonderful morning service, international dinner, and Q and A time. We have already been extremely blessed by this church and are looking forward to the rest of the conference over the next two days. Sunday afternoon, we drove to an evening meeting in Illinois, and greatly enjoyed our time at this church and getting to stay with a sweet couple from the church. Monday morning, we drove back to Indiana for the missions conference and got to spend the day at the Creation Museum in Kentucky as a gift from the church. Please pray for us during the rest of the conference, and as we drive to Ohio later this week. Also, we are enjoying the cooler weather up here in the north.

For His Glory
