I would just like to take a minute and introduce you to my new forever friends. These people have laughed with me (and occasionally at me, but lovingly ), cried with me, and called me out when it was needed. They have pushed me towards Christ and helped grow deeper in my faith. I 10/10 recommend that everyone find themselves a Portufam. My trip would not even have been half as good without them by my side aiding me in ministry and keeping me in line. Thank you all for loving me, being my friends, and never giving up on me. I love you Portupals! P.S. let's pretty please stay friends forever.
Over all, this trip was so amazing and life changing! God did so much in my own life and through my team during our time there. It was cool to see that when I leaned on him and relied on his strength instead of my own, how he provided for me in every area that I needed help. He stepped in where I was weak and was strong for me. I had an amazing team and we had an amazing week serving an amazing God!
Day 8: Friday was a very bittersweet day filled with laughter, tears, and an endless amount of hugs. We began the morning by worshiping with the PV Portugal worship band and even though the words were in Portugese, the heart could so clearly be heard that I was still moved to tears. For lunch I got to dine at the home of @nael_4 and @pali pv who served the most amazing chili and rice along with a fun Portugese appetizer! We also got to have many really good conversations and I wish I could have sat there and talked to them forever! The afternoon was filled with more shopping. That evening, the time we had all been dreading arrived, it was time to say goodbye. After many hugs amd tearful goodbyes, we loaded up on a coach bus and headed to the airport to return home. I was so, so sad to leave! Yet, I was also filled with excitement to go home and share all God had done in and through my team! Coming off the mountain was hard, but God has constantly reminded me that the sharing and caring does not have to stop when I leave Portugal.
