Thank you for praying for our trip. We are here in Carpina in the Northeast part of Brazil! We traveled for five days by car. It was a long but good trip. We got to see so much or Brazil. The highlight was one day at the beach in a town called Aracaju. Even Lady our dog did fine in her cage the whole time.
Carpina is in Brazil but it feels like a different country to us. The accent is so different, the customes, the food so we are adjusting. Up here there are no blond tall people so I stick out like a sore thumb. Even Rogerio and the kids have a different look.
Our new house is right in the center the city. We can walk everywhere. Our house is like an upstair apartment but big with four bedrooms and four baths. Our dog now is an indoor dog and gets to go out on a lease with me to run on the sidewalk. Different is not bad or good it is just different.
Our kids are all in school. Rebeca will go in the morning too because I will be teaching all morning. I will have 3rd/4th, 5th/6th, 7th- 9th, and 5 year old English classes. I have some planning to do. It is an International School so the kids are all learning English in various classes during the day with Portuguese subjects too. They are at school from 7:30 to 4 so it is a long day for them. Tiago was excited today because he was going to try Karate.
Rome Community Church from Bellingham WA will be arriving on Friday August 5. They will be with us for a week. They will be going to the schools with Rogerio to start up his basketball programs.
We are believing that God sent us here even though it may not always be easy. Ephesian 1:19 says” and what is the surpassing greatness of His power toward us who believe. These are in accordance with the working of the strength of His might”
PS We do not have our internet hooked up yet so communication is not very good but look at Rogerio’s ministry blog for some pictures
