Remembering July 4th in Argentina...

The pies, for which Walt peeled 21 apples, even said July 4th and U.S.A.
Jen, thanks for the 4th of July and Father's Day box. Everyone loved the red, white, and blue.

"Why are you wearing levis?" I asked Walt.

"Because it's the 4th of July," he replied.
Most of the Sr. Missionary Couples for the South America South Area even dressed in red, white, and blue, for our 4th of July pot luck indoor bar-b-que and party yesterday.

We had a patriotic program, then some played games,
and most of us watched "Chariots of Fire." Walt and I were surprised that so many had not seen it. We watch it several times each year. Remember when Eric Liddell, the Scottish racer would not run on the Sabbath in the 1924 Olympics. He quoted one of our favorite scriptures: "But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint." --Isaiah 40:31
Then as he was ready to run in a different race which was on a different day, the American medalist Schultz handed him the scripture: "Those who honor God, will God honor..." 1 Samuel 2:30 [Thanks, Janiece for giving us the reference.]

1 Samuel 2:30?

I enjoyed the voice clips of the pledge.

Hope to see you soon!

Is there anything you would like me to bring you from the states?
We arrive in B.A. on 23 Julio.

See you soon!
