Getting ready to head North to the Southeast

We've been back in Porto Alegre for less than two weeks, and we're getting ready to head back out. Things are slowly coming together, but we don't want to make any long-term commitments to anything here until we know more from our mission leadership about whether or not they want us to stay in Porto Alegre.

We're leaving tomorrow for a week or so of meetings in Southeast Brazil (a thousand or so miles North of us - hey, we're in the deep South here). The first two days will be at a hotel with the other Team Leaders, and then the rest of the week will be at the Word of Life Camp in Atibaia, São Paulo with the other missionaries working with Portuguese Speaking Brazilians in our area of Brazil.

We know that there is a lot of change going on, including changes in structure, leadership and strategy. Hopefully, after this next week we will have a better idea of what leadership sees as the future for our mission in Brazil.

On a good news note, we got a phone line today - we're still waiting for internet, although now that we have a phone, all of the local internet providers are peppering us with phone calls telling us that they are the provider for our internet service that we don't have and that we can't get it if we don't sign up with them RIGHT NOW! - it's hard to know who is telling the truth.
