Last weekend I went out with Wanne, Jenni, and April to attend a women's conference out of town. We left Friday at lunch and drove for about 3.5 hours into a rural area.

For those of you who would love to hear me talk in Portuguese.....here you go....
|during a break we learned (or tried to learn) how to tie head-scarfs|
|That afternoon we took a walk to see their village.|
|Wanne looking for a cell signal.....no success...|
|Their clinic/hospital.....it is all they have|
|These ladies asked me if I would take their picture|
|Wanne getting the coffee started on Sunday morning....Brazilian style|

|Our kitchen staff for the weekend|
Some of the sweet children in this village that came to see
what all the fuss was about at the Baptist Church.
|I learned something about bananas this weekend...|
Banana trees only product one stalk,
"cacha" in Portuguese,
in their lifetime.
|I felt as bad as I look!|
I had a big gash on my head and it hurt like crazy.
(My precious friend Jenni is comforting me!)
|John had to strap the door on it get home.|
|After a very bumpy 3 hour drive, I had a doctor check it in Quelimane.|
She said no stitches were needed.
Sheldon is checking it out, too.
|My poor head has had quite a bit of trauma in the last 6 months.|
