We returned to Brazil for our “next season” in August of 2012. And guess what? Those first years that we spent mostly in “sowing in tears” really did turn into a season of “reaping with joy”!

And this time, we had learned an important lesson about unity and we were growing. Blessed trials that force us to grow!
