U.S. Independence Day - in Brazil

     Although, as I mentioned in an earlier post, Brazilians have no reason to celebrate on July 4th, we were excited to be able to get together with a few of the other American Missionaries on the evening of Independence Day.   We really enjoyed the good fellowship and of course the excellent food.  It was quite chilly (probably around 60 °F).   But we enjoyed sitting around a nice bonfire and pit-barbecue. 

The women prepared a lot of amazing American food - hamburgers with all the toppings, potato salad, baked beans, and deviled eggs, plus all kinds of deserts.  (I didn't get a picture of the deserts.  Sorry, I didn't quite have photography on my mind when I was looking at Apple, Strawberry, and Pecan pies!)

     After we ate, we sat around the camp-fire singing patriotic songs and the children sang the National Anthem for us!

     It was a real treat for all of us!  Though we love this new land that God has called us to, we are so thankful for the way God has blessed our homeland!
