It's not what you may think...
On December 4, Johnny invited the men of the church to our house for breakfast. It may have been a bit early for some but it seems that they warmed up to the idea, no complaining heard!
After breakfast, they had a time of prayer and planning as the next two months were considered. Pastor Ed and Jan Alexander are on a short furlough during this time so Johnny is interim pastor.
Then in the afternoon there was a bridal shower for Jéssica, one of our young ladies at church. There were about 45 ladies and children that attended-a wonderful opportunity for me as I gave the devotional about "the give and take of marriage" and stuck in a salvation message at the end for the benefit of the several unsaved there from Jéssica's family.
Here are several pics to show the fun that was had with the bride. Let's start with the hair and nails...
Of course, she was interrupted by needing to answer her cellphone. Did you know that Brazil has more cellphones than it does people?!
Then they dressed her with, um, a certain type of paper...
...considering which, I thought the end result was pretty good, don't you?
Time to open the many useful gifts...
...and there's always a time to eat! Lots of salgados and doces for everyone.
I made the punch but we had lots left since we had prepared for 70 people! It was taken advantage of by the young people at their meeting which took place after the shower. No food goes to waste!
At the end, Jéssica handed out the little lembrancinhas to all who were there.
