I think I’m part Brazilian now

I’m not gonna lie.  I love Brazil.  Part of my heart is there.  I’ve been there 5 times now and I love it a little more each time. 

Daniel led our mission trip there again this time and honestly, that’s pretty stressful.  The preparation for the trip was especially frustrating this time and almost made me dread going.  And now after the trip, I can’t even believe I said that!052

Daniel with Baby Daniel (yes, named after him!)


Damiana and family, including Baby Wendi



After our guys beat the Brazilians 3-0





Not quitting my day job to become a brick mason anytime soon



The cutest siblings in all of Brazil


Ok, maybe THESE are the cutest siblings




Sweet sisters




Our Brazilian daughter, Laura



Bailey sharing the gospel with witness bracelets



Encouraging the girls to use the bracelets to tell others about Jesus (and they did!)




“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth." Acts 1:8

Oh, I LOVE seeing these sweet, familiar faces! I am so sad that I didn't get to see them in person, but this helps =)

I'm so glad that you guys had a wonderful trip. I'm ready to go back!!

I started smiling when I read your title. I am sure you feel that part of your heart is there after all of the relationships that you have developed and the neat things that God has done through you to help those that are there. I am glad you had a good trip and COME ON!! Be a brick mason!! :)
I'd love to hear about your news sometime! I did hear that things are in progress... that's soo exciting! :)
