I'll get to the point eventually

I'm kind of having a hard time thinking of something to write about. I could talk about how I went here and found all sorts of cute things, for $8.98 I might add. And then to Target to get this, in gray, and this cutie, in white. Oh my word I'm so excited for warmer weather! Where is it??

But that's really all I have to say about that and that's not much of a post.

So I was over at BooMama's, (well not actually AT BooMama's because that would have been quite the drive), but you know, at her BLOG reading this. And it got me thinking about my mission trip that is coming up in May. To Brazil. Or Brasil, if you speak the language. Which I do not. I do however speak a little espanol. And you know what? That doesn't help me one bit in Brasil. Because that Brasil country? How about it's the only one in South America that speaks Portuguese. Not very convenient for us spanglish speaking people, but apparently it's not all about me. Huh.

So, Daniel and I are going to Brasil with a group from our church. We are so very excited because we have been there before. Last October actually. And I have PICTURES!


The Brazilian dentist who went with us. He is talking to a whole elementary school (public) about oral health and relating it to spiritual health. It was so cool! Many kids prayed to receive Christ that day. The rest of us were in the back witnessing to teachers. The principal of the school accepted Christ later that day. God is good!


Here's Daniel keeping up with the Brazilians on the soccer field. Nice field, huh? The rocks added a nice bumpy element not usually found on soccer fields.

This is Christian Lady. No lie, that is her name. Isn't she beautiful?

We're looking forward to seeing friends we met last time and making new ones. The people are so gracious and inviting. We'll be going to some very remote villages to do street evangelism, hold worship services, play with the kids, provide free medical and dental care, and just show God's love to the people there.
We'd love to have you pray for us even now. We're having a fundraiser this week and we're praying for God to do amazing things there. Team unity, physical health, safety, and protection and safety of our families left behind are other prayer requests.
