Usually, our Bocaiúva Grupo has "Integração" activities at the church on Thursday nights. But some of the members changed that for the June 4, and planned a going-away barbecue for us at Dani's house. We were told that it would be just for a few select friends. We were concerned about not including everyone, but were pleasantly surprised to learn that many of the people had come. Brazilians do love their churrascarias! It was a fun evening, with lots of hugs & kisses. We were told
when we came one year ago that we'd stay there our entire 18-month mission. Our transfer took us all by surprise. Our leaving early made it even harder to say good-byes to these very special people.
