A Warm Welcome

The church gave us a nice surprise when we got here.  Someone just sent me a photo of the event, so now I can share it with you.  While we were still in the States they had asked us for a family photo.  They blew it up and hung it on the wall so they would all remember to pray for us.  During the first Sunday service we attended, they introduced us to the congregation and presented us with the photo and a hammock (over my shoulder).  
The kids were especially excited.  As you can see, Jonah held the photo up and Andy danced.  

The people in the photo (from left to right) are: Marisa Signoretti, Joanne (John's mom), us, Osmildo Braga, his wife Marta, their kids Jonathan and Catherine, Marisa'a daughter Andressa, and Marisa's husband Roberto. 


  1. Hey! Ever since you left a voice message on Luke’s birthday, I’ve tried skype calling, chatting, and skype calling your cell phones (today) to no avail. Do you still have Skype access? Is this email still up? Do you have a new email address? Bobster
