Matt (our teammate) reminded me this morning that today marks our 6 year anniversary in Brasil. Six years ago today we got off the plane and began this fun, stressful, spiritually growing, frustrating, exciting, maddening, totally humbling, completely reliant on God work to help bring the Good News of Christ to the people of Porto Alegre.
Our whole team (and all our stuff) in the Porto Alegre airport, June 23, 2002.
There have been days when I've wondered why God chose us to do this, but many more days of praise and thankfulness that He allows us to walk hand in hand with Him as well as our teammates, our incredible Brasilian brothers and sisters, and our not-yet Christian friends.
We don't know how much longer God will ask us to stay here in Brasil before He sends us on another adventure, but we are very happy to feel His peace in knowing that we are right where He wants us to be right now.
