Last week we were once again privileged with the presence of a team from Fellowship Baptist Church. I say “once again” because this is the third time a group from this church has visited us, under the banner “Fellowship of Christians United in Service” (F.O.C.U.S.). This time Pastor Daniel Comings (aka, my kid brother) brought down a smaller group (three people), which made for more individual contact and greater mobility.

The group arrived on Monday the 20th, and jumped right into their activities. The week they spent with us was quite full, so the report will be divided among several posts.

Here’s a short overview of their first two days with us. (Photos courtesy Daniel Comings)

Arrival, safe and sound, but tired, at the São Luís airport.

Lunch was at the home of one of our dear Ebenezer couples, Pedro and Rosa.

Getting into the swing of things.

At night, pizza washed down with the pride of Maranhão – Guaraná Jesus.

One of the advantages of a small group…meals with the family!

Sunday morning gave us the opportunity to see some sights.

Any similarity is purely coincidental.

Like uncle, like nephew.

Sunday night, church with no translator, giving them a real cross-cultural experience.

Stay tuned for more adventures in the following days.
