So we did this, instead:
I had made some peanut butter chocolate squares for our class, but since we didn't get to eat it there, we ate it at the restaurant. I gave some to the waitresses, and they liked it so much, they asked for the recipe! (Thanks, Ashley!) I never imagined that baked goods could be such a viable ministry-for me, anyways. There are many talented and renowned cooks back home in Canada who use this gift for baking and cooking in opportune ways, and I admire that.

Jake and I got to visit Ministerio OASIS again yesterday, the counselling part of MAEB, and Kathy Bacheller showed us her house that is in the process of being built.
We enjoyed being out there, and I was able to chat with the secretary, Karine, and hear more of her story, how God has worked in her life and brought her here.
Jake and I decided to take some pics too...

|Karine and I, a few weeks ago- I think I've gotten a bit darker, don't you?|
Being in Brazil has really taught us how to take things in stride. If you show up somewhere and no one is there, or they're late, you don't worry about it. I've actually felt less stress because of this, for, if I'm a little bit late, I know that my Brazilian counterpart won't mind that much.
