 Christopher served in Bragança for 6 months and always talked about how he loved the people there.

Maracuja is Passion Fruit but I can only guess
that Doce de Leite is some sort of caramel.

I spy with my little eye....eggs, some sort of meat, seasoning.....
maybe ham and eggs?

Shoes from a hard working missionary.

Christopher said this is his 'I don't want to roll my
pants up and walk in the mud again' face.
It rains every day in the dry season and twice a day in the wet season.

I don't think the umbrella really keeps them dry.

I spy with my little eye....we think this is bologna with cheese and salsa.

Christmas in Bragança with Elder Magnere

(Anaconda) SNAKE! Everything is bigger in the Amazon!

Guarana Jesus. It's a soda they all love.
It has more caffeine than Mountain Dew

There is quite a story about these bridges.
He has broken a couple of those planks
and fallen in the water and mud.
Then he has to fix the bridge and

Notice that all the houses are on stilts?
That is why he walks gracefully across them. 

I finally found out when he brother came home
 from his mission in Brazil that that thing is not a
tennis racket he is singing into but an electric big killer.

Christopher loves the people in Bragança

You can't really see it but the bridges are there

A good game of chess on New Year's eve.

The burning of the tie for his 6 month mark.

I am so greatful for this family to have Christopher over for their Christmas FEAST!!
I'm making this photo xlarge because there is so much food that you have just got to see it all!
Remember if you are viewing this from the U.S. it is hot there at Christmas time

I spy with my little eye.... front right, the hugest grapes I think I have ever seen! Behind the fruit looks like Panettone.
Between the bottles in back middle I see a sweet little boy (o:
