Who is here excited for another weekend?
Who of you have a good week?
My week has been kinda sloooooow but good. For me it's really amazing see how great things God has allowed me to live and this is more than enough for me to be thankful for.
Well, my last post was about one of my new friends I met on Adonia English Camp, Raquel. My new swiss-brazilian friend is such a lovely person, with a gorgeous beauty inside and out and has a beautiful heart for Christ and His cause.
Her parents are swiss and live here in Brazil for 20 years if I am not wrong. They live in a inner town called Barras (2 hours from the capital city of Piauí) and there they work hard to make God's name be known in that place. In the small conversations Raquel and I had during Adonia, it's possible to see her heart for missions she's just waiting on God's direction for the next steps (hard waiting but worthy!).
Before she travels to a missionary field, I invited her to come over for a weekend of relax and fun with me and my family in our simple but lovely house hahaha. Praise God she accepted the invitation and I think it was one of the funniest weekend I had lol.
As I said on the beginning, she's such a lovely girl but also a funny one! (I cracked up most of the times while we talk or when we were getting ready to go out hahaha).
Some of my friends made her weekend funny too (I didn't take any pic of Sunday night with my sweet friends while we ate pastel... my super bad!) and I'm so thankful for them and for the blast we had while she was here.
Check some of the pics:

Three of my friends, Raquel and I went to the movies to watch Frankstein and I never laughed so hard as I did while I was with them (and it wasn't because of the movie!).
We had lots of fun messing around one of the big stores at the mall and praise God nobody saw our ''weirdness"! hahaha

Last Monday (03/02) she left to a new time full of adventure and challenge.
It was kind sad to see her leaving (brazilians are sensitive, I'm worst than everybody when we talk about sensitiveness, I swear! hahaha) but see how peaceful she was about everything, even all the doubts about the unknown, makes things way better.
:: Camila and I sad 'cuz she's gone ::
The better part of all this is that we are going to be together soon!
But while we are not around each other anymore, daily prayers go out and skype comes to save! hahaha
I don't know if y'all have the opportunity to have such good and funny Godly friends as I do but I pray that God bless everyONE of those people around you who you call or consider "friend" and may you be a blessing to them today. Also, may you seek on Him wisdom to be away from ''fake and bad friends".
Hope you enjoyed this post and have an amazing weekend!
God bless you!
