November 2009

LAR Costume Party
The Lar Project had a Costume party and dance for the students, and each class had a theme, such as the Flintstones, or other cartoon characters. I came in a Brazil T-shirt and said I was a "Brazilian" but the other teachers didn't go for that - so they 'made' me wear a Minnie Mouse costume, because she was American!

Area Directors visit Vila Andrade
The WorldVenture area directors, Jim & Corinne Thorp, came for a visit to Vila Andrade, and they had a good conversation with the Project Director, Marissa (shown below), as well as getting to see the daily routine and sitting in on an English class. Of course the kids loved having their pictures taken too!

Children's Church
This month I taught about missionary John Payton. Below is an opening exercise about the 'Land of No Elbows' - the kids had to figure out how to eat without elbows. The point was to serve each other the food, and learning that God wants us to show love by helping others.

Small Group
My small group is halfway through the Truth Project and we enjoy lively discussions and being challenged each week. Our Pastor's wife celebrated her birthday this month, so we had cake for her.

Happy Thanksgiving!
Wishing you and your family a blessed Thanksgiving day!
