Finally all together after picking up Nathan and Sara at the airport!
Our first Sunday night worship as a complete team! We followed this by our first team potluck. We are expecting more of those to come!
An evening with Zane and April and one of our Portuguese teachers, Julianno, and his girlfriend Anaua. We had dinner and learned a couple Brazilian card games. One of them was the exact same as one of Wes' grandfather's favorites, Hand and Foot.
At Brent's Birthday Party! His party was a fantastic Brazilian churrasco (Brazilian barbeque)!
Our first Niteroi Survey Meeting--A committee from the team has been compiling data about each of the neighborhoods in Niteroi and last Thursday night they presented the material with requests for where we go from here. Pray for God's guidance as we make this incredible decision.
We had the wonderful opportunity to visit a local orfanage this past weekend. We got spend lots of time playing and talking with the kids there. It was a wonderful blessing and we are going to go back each week to spend time with them. Be watching for video footage of our time with these kids!
Wes loved getting to play soccer with the kids!
Our most recent church visit--We took the boat over to Rio and enjoyed a wonderful time of worship with one of the Churches of Christ there. It was a blessing to see how they worship and seek to serve the Lord and allow His Word to guide their lives.
