Brazil!



My youngest daughter recently went on a mission trip to Brazil.  She had a blast, and has changed her life's goal from moving to Laguna Beach to moving to Brazil...it's always changing because she loves an adventure, and rarely backs down from a challenge. 

She went with a large group of high school students from our church.  She made a lot of new friends...the Brazilian team they were working with along with some translators.  What is so cool, is that they are all friends now on Facebook.  I think Facebook will allow some friendships to last a lifetime, that would otherwise have been forgotten.  

Here are just a few snapshots of her trip.  The bonus was she personally prayed with a Brazilian woman, who came to know Christ as her personal savior!  That's an experience Lexi will never forget!

 Some of the group at the airport.


 I think this is in Miami...pretending to be Harry Potter. (going through the wall to catch the train to Hogwarts)


 Her team


 Lexi and Lucas, one of the translators.

School children.



It's photos like these that remind a mom that her prayers for safety were not wasted! 


Near the camp where they stayed.



A few days after getting home, she got her braces off, got her hair highlighted, and came home from Walmart with a fish and named him Frank.  It never gets dull at our house.



Update soon...
Love as always!

It's wonderful to hear about kids serving God in missions. My girls are going this summer to work with a group called Surfing The Nations.
Loved the photos!
Blessings,

The mission trips my sons took really shaped their lives--I know she must have been really blessed by the experience.

What a wonderful post! How awesome to see Lexi's life touching lives for the Kingdom. Sounds like she had an amazing and everlasting experience.

She is such a beautiful girl -- inside and out! (LOVE her hair!!!) And, YES, she looks just like YOU! So pretty. Give her a hug for me.
