|We are getting desperate for snow, and have taken to even defrosting the refrigerator|
With rumors flying around from the United States about an impending blizzard, Faith and I are enjoying what sun and warmth we can get in our last month!

This week we continued our English lessons at the Irma Dulce center working on basic phrases such as “I am happy, sad, hot, cold, tired” and most importantly, “hungry”. On Wednesday mornings we now participate in a clay/mosaics class and are able to practice Portuguese while meeting people from the Santo Antonio community. Unfortunately I didn’t snap a photo of our clay creations, but it was probably for the best since my hands were by default covered in clay.

|Beautiful mass at Santo Antonio|
This morning Br. Francis Therese co-celebrated mass at the local parish of Santo Antonio in honor of Irma Dulce. Many of the co-ordinators and students from the Irma Dulce center were there to celebrate with us a lovely mass.
Speaking of the heat , last Friday we threw a “water party” for the children of alto which consisted of hosing down 20+ kids down with cold water with lots of jumping, screaming, and playing of soccer.
Best wishes from us in Brazil and were hoping you stay warm wherever you are!
