After an intense, busy but fascinating few days in Argentina, I’ve finally found space to write my first blog update, so here goes.
After recovering from the 13 hour flight we spent the first full day learning about the history of Argentina, the present financial and political climate, and the Anglican Church. There will be much to share about the political and financial situation and its impact on daily life when I return. Suffice to say there’s much anxiety and fear about levels of crime and violence. But the people of Argentina are resilient and optimistic and I experienced that in the people I have met.
90% of population still have some vestiges of faith, enough not to abandon it.
