Just in case some of you don't know exactly what we'll be doing in Brazil this week, here's the basic rundown. After flying all day and night on Saturday, we'll arrive in Recife early Sunday morning. We'll spend Sunday preparing our classrooms at Kids Place, then end the day with dinner and a church service on the beach...and early bedtimes!
Monday-Thursday looks basically like this:
Mornings: VBS at Kids Place for about 80 children
Afternoons: visits to the favelas (slums) and running an eye clinic for adults at Kids Place
Evenings: team dinners, time with Recife's VFC missionaries
It all looks like black and white schedules and itineraries at this point, but soon we'll be able to color in the picture with faces, sights, smells and activities. All of the preparation we've been doing will turn into actual service -- a shift we're all eagerly awaiting. We look forward to sharing it all with you...starting tomorrow!
