Brazil Trip 2001

We give God all the glory for this trip!  The missionary Abel family that we stayed with down there was amazing. We learned so much just from watching their daily lives.  We all have hopes of returning to Brazil; maybe some as full-time missionaries in the future.  Please pray for missions!

Here we are singing a song that we learned in Portuguese for a youth night.

This is a skit that Jesse and Lidia did for the youth night.
We did two kid’s clubs in two different churches.  We presented the wordless book story along with a glove illustration.  15 kids came forward at each place.  We praise God for the beautiful simplicity of the Gospel.

Sarah and I with two kids from the orphanage.  The kids were adorable.  Sarah changed her plane ticked to be able to stay and work there.

This is us painting a house in the little village that we were staying.  Don’t you love that shade of blue?…

I got some on my shoe…
….whatever shall I do?….
…stop it! stop it!  and I mean it!
….anybody want a peanut?…

Tom is awesome, but one day he decided to try to drown on us.  He got to be carried away by all those nice guys and ride in a great ambulance, though.  We’re so glad he was ok.

We had the opportunity to be involved in a big Youth Camp over Carnaval.  It was a great time of meeting new friends, learning more Portuguese and never having a dull moment with the schedule of activities.  A week of memories….

That’s All Folks!  To God be the glory! ~  luke
