We're almost there, ...At the airport at Sao Paulo, we met our other 2 team mates, Kevin & Steve from Miami. Kevin will help to present at the event which will be held this Saturday at the Capela da Graca church in Londrina.  Steve is the videographer.  
We landed in Londrina at 4:00 p.m. & were picked up by the church greeting committee of about 10 people in 4 cars who drove us to our hotel, most spoke some English, some only Portuguese, but the "Bem Vindo (Welcome)" was understood by all.  We had just enough time to take a quick shower, then head to the church for the Kid Stuff program, then the regular service. 
What a thrill to see that our God is all over the world!  To hear our North Point music in Portuguese was truly a memorable experience!  The Kid Stuff program, the church service for the children, was so professionally done, the acting & music so engaging.   
After the service, we then went for dinner to a pizza place with a group of about 30 people from the church including the "speaking" pastor, Eduardo, & his family; Paulo & Kelen, the singers & band members; cast members from Kid Stuff & friends.  
The pizza is not like American, it is thin crust with many different toppings, no sauce, but cheeses, chicken, beef, vegetables.  The waiters come around with different varieties & you take whichever ones you want to try.  They also have dessert pizzas, some with ice cream, some with fruits.  Of course we had try a little of each.  Everyone was so happy to have us there & were all very eager to practice their English.  By the time we got back to the hotel it was around 12:30 p.m.  What a great first evening & very comfortable bed! Boa noite!
