This week I partook of my first New Year’s Day in Brazil. I ended up staying at the Zone Leader’s house for the night which was cool because they have a “barbacue.” I feel the quotations neccesary because -in my book- a sawed-in-half oil drum really doesn’t count as a grill. Needless to say, the 5 kilograms of steak that we cooked that night were truly horrible.
The Zone Leader’s house is situated in between two cities so I got to watch to fire work shows instead of one, each of which lasted for 30 minutes; unfortunately, the shows were monumetally disorganized; Probably ten times I thought “Oh that was kind of a lame finalé… but whatever, I guess I can do without a big blitzing finish to christen my New Year” only to have the fireworks start up again 20 seconds later. That being said, It turned out to be a decent Felize ano novo.
We had 2 more baptisms this week as well which is unfortunatly a slugglish start to my 20 baptisms-this-month goal, but I’m always looking toward the future and thanking god for the blessing of participation in the first steps toward salvation of those two souls.
Anyway, other than that this week was relatively unneccptional.
Have a Great new year and Godspeed!!
