Already Burnt??


We have been here less than a week and I already burnt my feet.
Ok so I burnt them while I was fishing in the ocean on Sunday morning.

That's right the first Sunday here I went fishing and Lindsay slept in.
The Community Church holds church on Sunday evenings here.

Fishing was really fun and I caught a huge fish. Ok so maybe it was a small fish

Things have been going great with helping the Ministry so far. I have spent most of my time these last few days at the Cafe/Print Shop downtown Carpina (about a mile away from where we live). I was able to bring down my desktop computer and my laptop so we are using them in the Print Shop.
Roberto (the guy who runs the ministry Print Shop) and I spent a lot of time making the place look proffessional by getting the computer ready for the Print Shop to use. The Print Shop is also a Internet Cafe. Tele said that it is the only one in Carpina with laptops and a wireless network (we brought one down with us)!

The Cafe Impresso/Print Shop is a new ministry about 4 months old that has already been a huge blessing down here. Tele and workers here are able to witness to the customers and it is also a blessing for communication with churches in the US. They have high speed internet so we can use a program called Skype to call telephones in the US from our computers for cheap. You can also call computer to computer. If you want to talk to us get www.skype.com. Our user name is JeffRoyT or just search for Jeff Turner.

Lindsay has been helping out at the International School and will be taking over for Rachel Winzeler in August as a full time teacher there. She has been enjoying it a lot.

Both of us our starting Portuguese lessons this evening. After Brazil wins their first game of the World Cup (playing right as I speak)!

Thanks for the call. I appreciate it a lot. I'm glad you two are doing alright. The room looks nice and the Cafe looks beautiful.

I'll see about getting a skype account sometime soon and I'll let you know about it.

Hi guys! It was great to hear from you and see some pictures. Hey Jeff, did you throw the little guy back or did you eat him?

No real updates here.

I love you and I'm praying for you!
