Here is the hospital where we will have our first baby in November! Yes, I’m pregnant!!!!!!!!!!!
It is only about half a mile from our house!
The gate to “the land of the Americans.” That is what the people in town call the New Tribes Mission Training Center in Brazil. Which is funny because there is only about 4 Americans there and the rest are Brazilian. It is only about 3 blocks from our house so we go there often.
The excitement of being new here has worn off. It is very hard not knowing what is going on all the time. One day, we played volleyball with the students at the training center and then it started to rain so a few of us huddled under two umbrellas and they were jabbering away and then all of the sudden everyone split and me and Stephen were left in the rain wondering where they all went! ha ha
We also have to do our own cooking which means buy groceries…this is very difficult when you can’t read any of the labels! I bought meat for the first time 2 days ago! They have a bunch of meat hanging there and you have to tell the lady what you want and she cuts off a hunk.
We have to do 40 hrs of language study a week. Only 4 of those are real actual class time. The rest we get by… listening over and over to the lessons, talking with people, watching Portuguese movies, and listening to sermons.
This is how we get around town! We have one bike. There is room for the baby on the front 🙂
Looking to God for strength,
Stephen and Amber Clement
