Greetings from Brazil

I can not believe that I only have 42 more days before I return to the states! I should be sorting, trashing, packing and cleaning right now, but this is much more fun. Besides it is on my list of things to do so I am at least getting something checked off the long "to do" list.

So why the title "Joyful Heart?" Because even though leaving will be sad, I want to focus on having a joyful heart. Grateful for the eight wonderful years, God has allowed me to serve here in Brazil and thankful that I can look forward with joy to what God has planned for me in the future. On this blog I hope to post thoughts and photos related to the process of leaving my life and ministries here in Brazil and returning to life in the states.

This cool photo was taken by Ron Greenwich at one of our favorite places to take volunteer teams for those wonderful ocean view photos.
"OK"...back to work for now...more to come...
