Brazil Gardening Day 1

This is the day that the Lord has made we WILL rejoice and be glad in

That is what we said as we left the hotel this morning. It was raining
and the traffic was slow.

We finally made it to the colony and prayed that all the dirt and
grass would arrive. You cannot begin to know how happy we were when
the trucks started to roll in.

The first load of dirt and all the grass arrived. Praise the Lord. The
experienced gardeners had a blast at the nursery discussing where to
plant and what to plant!

Most of us just stood back and let "professionals" decide.

We also got to visit some of the ladies in the colony had the joy of
listenng to Mrs Dalva sing to us.

The Director of the colony assigned 3 men to work with us and it took
awhile for them to realize that women can work and haul brick and dirt!

We climbed on the van tonight muddy, tired, hungry but really happy
with what was done today.

Tomorrow another truck load of dirt will arrive and we will start
planting grass.

Barbara Swanson did the devoitional tonight and talked about praying
and speaking with boldness. Please pray for us to be bold as our days
here are few.
