Yesterday we had a day off and we needed some time to relax after a long and hard week. One of the few disappointing things that happened this past week was that we were scheduled to speak in a school on Tuesday through Thursday, but when we arrived Tuesday morning they told us that they were having tests all week and we could not speak there. They did not mention this to me when I called to confirm 2 weeks and again last week. One of the frustrating things about working in the schools here in Brazil is that some of them are not organized at all, and this causes us problems. We have to organize the event with the school, with the church we are working with, and then with 2 interpreters for each day we speak. When a school changes the schedule, usually they do it without any notice and then we have to scramble to reorganize everything. Sometimes we have to reorganize 2 or 3 times. But it is still all well worth it to join God in what He is doing to reach out in His love to help people to have a reconciled relationship with Him.
Anyways, yesterday we went for a long walk on the beach to relax, and we also went up to Ilha de Porchat in Sao Vicente to take some pictures. Here are some photos to enjoy.
