A big event will take place next month in Argentina. The G-20 summit is a meeting that involves the top 20 economies of the world, including India. It will be held in Buenos Aires on November 30th and December 1st. On a side note, a private meeting will be taking place between President Trump and China President Xi Jinping. The meeting will be about the recent and escalating trade war between these two nations that represent the two largest economies.
We spent a lot of time traveling in September, visiting supporting churches, and we had the opportunity to be in a missions conference in Jackson, Georgia. We also purchased our plane tickets. We fly out for Argentina on November 28th! We have two birthdays in September. Ian, our oldest, turned 12, and Caroline turned 8. They are both great blessings to our families.
The city of Rosario is the city that we will be moving to at the end of November. It is the third most populous city in Argentina, but it has the highest crime rate. This year there have been well over 90 homicides in the city. Most of the homicides center on gang violence.
