American and Native Christian Gaúchos

For your viewing pleasure, here's a picture of Cam and I in our native Gaúcho clothes after church on Sunday, in honor of Semana Farroupilha, the week when Gaúchos celebrate the war of independence from Brazil in the 1800's.

Here are some photos of some of the native Gaúcho worship services we attended last week.

Cool site. My wife and I have recently submitted our application to the IMB. We also have 7 and 3 year old boys. Any advice for someone on the beginning end of this journey?

Dear Jody,

My biggest word of advice would be to slow down and enjoy the process. Most of us get so stressed out through the application process, appointment, and language, that we miss the enjoyment of seeing God bless us and teach us during the frustration and hard times. If it is God's will, it WILL come together - we don't need to push it, we just need to stay in close with HIM and let HIM do the work
