"If you keep doing what you've always done, you'll keep getting what you've always gotten." (source forgotten by Sister Burch)
Samuel knew what he needed to do. But he was left without much help or instruction. His first two attempts were utter failures, so instead of giving up or trying to keep entering the city the same way, he changed his tactic. He had to make a change to see a difference. So he was proactive and used his creativity to think of a solution. He climbed the wall.
If we want different results, we have to be different and try different things. So I am using all the creativity I can muster here in Campo Limpo. Sister Barboza and I are adjusting our focus. We are climbing the wall. And we are seeing changes.
Our focus is on FAMILIES. And we are teaching a family that is so spectacular. When I met them, they were familiar to me. I felt so strongly that it was not the first time I was talking to them. I felt instant love for each one of them. For Caroline, for Michael, for Rafael, who happens to be seven feet tall and has dreads down to his waist. Yup. I was meant to meet them. This family has been jumping from religion to religion their entire lives and has never found the answers they've been searching for, until one day God crossed our paths.
I am so so so feliz. And I love you all so so so much.
