Two Months :)

Standard

Wow!!! I’ve been gone for 2 months. I’m so sorry that I haven’t been keeping my blog updated. The internet here isn’t too great and it takes a very long time to load anything… But here is a little update. We have been visiting different churches every week and I’m getting to meet a lot of people. Everyone is so friendly and loving 🙂 We’ve been working very hard around the farm to get the Missionary training house together and get the Coopers all moved in.  This weekend we’ll be having a “Viglila” it’s all night prayer and fasting here at the Jubilee Farm. We’ll be having a service and going up the mountain to pray. If everything works out, Jessy and I will be going to stay with the Norris’ in Rio the beginning of next week and then flying to Manaus for a Children’s Crusade.  I’m so excited about the Children’s Crusade!!! Not only because it’s where my grandfather and my father were missionaries, but because there will be around 2,000 kids seeking after God. The whole reason for me coming here, to help Children. It might not be giving them food or a place to stay, but it’s giving them so much more. Something that will change their lives forever! So please pray that God leads us as we make the trip to Manaus. I’ll be posting lots of pictures as soon as I can! 

Much love, Olivia

Week One

Standard

Well first of all, Brazil is amazing. The people are great, the food is awesome and I’m having the time of my life. I’m so thankful that the Cooper’s allowed me to get adjusted to the time difference. I was staying up till 3 am the first few nights and could easily sleep till noon. Everything has been pretty relaxed this last week, but that’s all about to change… We have a 2 hour english class tonight, a 4 hour english class on Saturday, Church service Saturday night and a Children’s revival on Sunday. I know that God has great things in store for Sao Paulo, Brazil and I’m so happy that I get to be apart of it.

I’ll try to keep you all updated… It’s really hard to get internet here. I was trying to upload some pictures, but the internet is too slow.  I’ll try soon!

Three Days Away

Standard

I meant to blog the day I arrived in Miami, but I haven’t really had a chance.  It’s hard to believe that I’ve already been gone for over a week… it has went by so fast!  Anyways, I’ve been having lots of fun staying with the Hattabaugh’s.  I’m still on California time, so I’ve been going to sleep late and waking up super late.  I think they’re starting to worry about me. Ha! 

I’ll be flying to Brazil on Monday, June 4th. I’m VERY excited. Every time someone asks me about my trip, I get more and more excited.  I will try my hardest to keep everyone updated and post pictures.  I’m not sure how often I will have internet, but when I do, I’ll post. 

Keep me in your prayers, God Bless!

Update

Here is a little update on everything.

I’ve purchased my ticket to Brazil!  I’ll be flying out of Miami on June 4th at 11:00 am.  I’ve been looking for tickets to Miami, but since gas prices have went up I’m having a hard time finding them in my price range.  If everything goes as planned I’ll be flying to Miami on May 23rd.  Please pray that my Visa process goes smoothly and quickly. I’ve had a little trouble, but I know God has everything under control.
