Here’s a quick update with our first team photo. Orientation has continued to go well. So many inspirational people here at camp, specifically the long term missionaries giving up their lives to serve in Burundi, Thailand, and France (including 2 families with 6 little girls among them). Team building is continual and today we had a little lesson on some Portuguese phrases. We were also able to skype with Marjorie and Otto, the missionaries we’re going to serve. They told us what our Sunday will look like after arriving early in the morning – lunch at church (meals together in Portugal are more than just a meal, but a fellowship) and then a another service in Loures. Diving right in! It looks like we’ll also be focusing on building friendships with the youth and engaging in sports and activities with them, as well as working at the new church plant.
That’s all for now!
