Brazil---Week 3

This week in pictures

VBS with preschoolers through 4th grade in the mornings
One class making animal puppets

Hayes helping another class

Carol (local missionary's daughter), Evelyn (translators's 8 yr old), and Jusarra (next door neighbor/friend in Pelo Sinal) making puppets with Jusarra's preschool class

Isabel (our translators's 13 year old) getting ready for a skit

Vovô Carlos (missionary we are working with) and Jillian (It's taken 2 1/2 weeks, but she loves him and will go to him anytime---even over me or Daniel.)

I'm washing some of Jillian's clothes.  A local friend of ours is actually washing our clothes in her washing machine when we need it. But sometimes I wash them like this. Hayes thinks this is the funniest thing ever.

From top left: Julianna (local pastor's daughter), Hayes, Becca, Jillian, and Evelyn playing dominoes. Jillian actually stayed like this for about 5 min., just watching.

Aftermath of Hayes's run-in with a tree.

Spirits have been high and we have all had a great week.  Harper has led a teen Bible study in our house every morning this week and a women's study is starting on Monday.  The plan is for Pastor Carlos to continue these after we leave.  This is a totally new concept for the people of Pelo Sinal, so we'll pray for encouragement and for the desire for God's Word for them.

One more week here!  Praying it's a great one!
