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)
Lexi and Lucas, one of the translators.
Doing a skit for the children in a school.
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.
Love as always!
