Back from Brazil

Just a couple days ago, Meg and I returned from Brazil. Here she is in the historic part of Sao Luis in Northeastern Brazil (my kind of field trip!). We traveled with four other ladies from our church and visited a missionary couple we know there. As part of our trip, Meg got to sing to a few hundred people, and we provided a children's program while the moms were in seminars.

I was very impressed with Brazil. They have so much more going for them than the people of India (my main point of reference for life outside the US). I saw no homeless, no begging children, and no roaming cows. They even have garbage pick up! But there is still a lot of poverty and a real need for better education in all areas. We were thrilled to get to go on this trip and do what little we did.

Now I'm back home, playing catch up in several areas. Thanks, Duska, for taking care of the give away while I was gone. I missed you all.

Nice little trip! I have friends who are missionaries in Joa Pessoa. It's in the northeast also. Someday we will go visit them! I would love to hear more about your trip!

What a wonderful opportunity for both of you and Meg. Kayla loved her time in Brazil and didn't want to come back home. Welcome back home!
