We are American Missionaries living in Brazil.
Our lives are full of constant contrasts and divided affections
We wanted Brazil to win the World Cup
We wanted America to do well
On the way to our 4th of July celebration with some fellow missionaries we stopped to buy Brazil flags to put on the side mirrors of our car.
We get to Grandma's house and make US flags out of Playdough, 4th of July sugar cookies and
US colored jello.
Over breakfast we hear a report from Daniel on American History.
We put on our most Red, White and Blue clothes, (All our Old Navy Flag shirts have grown too small:) and head off to our 4th of July cook-out with Hot dogs and Hamburgers and baked beans.
But at 5 o'clock Brazil is playing so we quickly switch to our Blue, Green and Yellow clothes and cheer for Brazil. Finishing off the night with a Brazilian style cook out!
