Last week we were super busy with the four day weekend for Reformation Day (Día Nacional de las Iglesias Evangélicas y Protestantes) on October 31st and All Saints Day on November 1st. As an alternative activity to Halloween, our church hosts an overnight for the youth that is filled with games, food, and devotionals. This was our second year participating in "Pactoween" (a play on the church's denomination which is Del Pacto) and we had a great time. Missy was in charge of all the food, and though we were pretty busy making all the purchases leading up the event, we enjoyed ourselves thoroughly.

Everyone arrived Monday afternoon and we played games and took Once (the Chilean light evening meal) then had a small devotional and played a Swedish night game. Then we made a big bonfire and everyone brought snacks to share while our friend Pastor Cesar spoke. We didn't stay up there overnight, but we left late and returned early so as to have the breakfast ready.

We had a devotional time in the morning, followed by a talk by Pastor Luciano, then lunch and a rally -- which is one of those games where you have groups and go to different stations to perform activities -- followed by some soccer and Once.

Long few days, but really great to hang out with the youth for an extended period of time outside of church. And the predio (the camp we stayed at) is just plain fun!

Hope you had a great 31st, it's springtime here so it didn't feel too much like Halloween, but we enjoyed it all the same!
