Friday was Valentines day here in Brazil.
It is celebrated very differently from what is done in the US.
Here in Brazil it only for couples, dating or married, children don't participate.
So our church had a special couples dinner, hosted by the young people!
Our special menu for the night was chili! Now chili is not traditionally used seasoning so it was a bit of risk. But one of our women loves to cook and she had a great recipe. As you can see from the picture, we cleaned up the chili, so I guess it was a hit!
We had a study from the Word and at time of games led by the teens. It was a great night of fellowship and lots of laughter. One of the games was hearing the stories of how our husbands proposed to us. It was lots of fun guessing who's story it was!
Happy valentines day from us down here in Brazil.
And by the way, me and my valentine just celebrated 17 years of marriage this month!
