DAY ELEVEN - Ladies Tea

Saturday was the first time in six days that I did not have to start my day by putting makeup on my face!  Mercy me, you ladies have a little more sympathy from me when it comes to having to start your day with that as your routine.

The day began with two wrestling practices.  Those of you who know Dr. Latham's ministry are aware that he uses the sport of wrestling to reach young people and has seen many families saved and added to his church.  At 66 years old, he is still going strong and has shown a great love for young people.

In the afternoon Mrs. Latham hosted a Ladies Tea at the church.  She had over eighty ladies in attendance.  The meeting lasted about two hours and everyone seemed to have a good time.  The men had the honor of being servers and working in the nursery.  The Herbert's once again provided the great music for another event.

We had some entertainment tonight as we went out to what amounted to a dinner theater.  There was some traditional folk dancing and great food.  They had some kind of acrobat swinging wooden balls on a string all around the room.  I don't know what it is called but it was pretty impressive.  By the time we arrived home it was nearly midnight which means our special Sunday breakfast is going to arrive far too soon.

Praise the Lord Erick woke up feeling better this morning.  Jodi Herbert has been fighting a cold.  I assume that visiting a foreign country exposes you to a variety of irritants, germs and such that your body is not used to fighting.  Add that to fatigue and you have yourself a combination that lends itself to people easily getting sick.  As a testament to all the good food we have eaten, we are all very happy that dysentery has not been on the list of problems for us!

We counted over 80 ladies and daughters.  They just kept coming in and we kept setting up more tables.

Famous dinner theater in Porto Allegro where they bring out all the meat on a stick and slice off whatever you want.  They had every kind of meat you would see on the menu at the best restaurants and it was "all you can eat".

We saw figurines of this guy in all the shops.  He is either Brazil's Marlboro Man or some kind of historical figure.
