Hey guys! Sorry that I haven´t been able to update as often as I would have liked to this week! There was only one computer at the hotel and as you can imagine it was the hot spot!!! So, sorry about the delay in writing!
The week was awesome, as you can imagine. I think it may have been the best week I´ve spent with a volunteer mission team-- and I have worked with many!!! Everyone was united and worked well together. We did home visits in the community, had many activities for the boys of the orphanage, built a bakery and a dorm, presented the gospel to the Brazilian carpenters, and much more! There is way too much to tell! I was personally able to help lead three ladies to the Lord! This week was a real blessing from God.
I was especially glad to have many young people on the teams that came down-- including my good friends Laura and Chip. Also, three of my friends from my Sunday School class, Ashley, Greg, and Matthew. It was a blast to be with you all! I think Laura and Chip are already planning their next visit!!! :)
Lucy and Luis even made it back to Feira in time to work with us the entire week! It was really good to spend time with them. The other translators were Keith, Deborah, Morgan, and Christa Jefferson, Anne, Jeter, Mark Anderson, and me.
To the team---It was sooo good to work with all of you!!! Thank you for a wonderful week!!!
I can´t wait til tomorrow when I go back out to the orphanage to see how the boys are doing. They were all in tears as the team was leaving on Friday.
Pray for Linda and Eddie as they make plans to fly to Forteleza on Wednesday. Pray for Anne and I as we look for a place to stay-- yet again! God is faithful and I know he will provide-- again!!! We have to be out of the seminary on July 1. Thanks for your prayers!
