'Many blessings' during Crestview family's trip to Argentina

The Feast of the Tabernacles is the Church of God’s celebration of Old and New Testament teachings, Sandra said.

"We keep all of the Holy Days in Leviticus 23 that Christ and the New Testament church kept," she said. "Feast of Tabernacles, to us, pictures when Christ returns to this earth; the whole lion-lies-down-with-the-lamb business."

Each day began with a church service, leaving afternoons free for sightseeing with the Dreadens’ Argentine hosts, along with explorations to vineyards and olive groves outside the historic city.

A team of translators ensured the "international" guests — those not from Chile, Argentina, Uruguay, Paraguay and Bolivia —  were included in all the services, dinners and entertainment.

Art Dreaden celebrated his birthday during the sojourn, receiving a special present when he exchanged neckwear with another man, adding a Tabasco-themed tie to others in his collection.

"To us, it's a time of the year when we get our batteries recharged, get our spiritual life on track, and find what's really important in life," Sandra said. "It's a time to rededicate our lives to what's really important."
