Brazil Tomorrow

Friday February 26, 2010

The day we move to Brazil! We fly out of B'ham at 2:30 on Friday and arrive in Sao Paulo at 7am Saturday (they are 3 hours ahead of CST). Then, we have a 4 hour drive to our new home. Please pray for us as we experience the craziness of traveling with a 4 month old (as of today) and lots of luggage, a car seat, and stroller.

Next post will be from Brazil!

Did you know we have a website? Steven created a great site for you to know what's going on in our ministry. Please check it out and let us know what you think. He writes a lot more in his blog than I do. So for pics come to my (emily) blog and to read go to Steven's blog. Check it out here: Brazilian Urban Church Movements

My cousin Gerri enjoys taking pics. So when she came over with her family on Saturday I asked her to bring along her camera. Thanks Gerri for the pics!

Time to Go

Our Visas have been granted and our plane tickets have been purchased! We are set to fly out on Friday February 26th at 2:30pm from Birmingham and arrive in Sao Paulo at 7am on the 27th. From there we take a 4 hour drive to language school (where we will be the next year).
So glad to be going, but I would be lying if I said I wasn't scared. Not scared like freaking out just silly fears. God is reminding me of his promises and showing me in his Word how faithful He is. I am thankful to be reading through the OT currently because I get to read about God's grace and faithfulness. I am confident God will give much grace to me as I take the next step in following him.
