Well, we have officially entered the 'epoca de chuva' here in João Pessoa. Every morning, we wake up to pouring rain, and if we're lucky we get to walk in it all day as well! Early in the week, we returned home from an uneventful P-Day shopping trip to realize that we had lost the keys to our front door. Once the reality of the situation sunk in, the four of us calmly walked around to the bedroom window almost at the back of the house, pushed it open, and climbed in. For the next three days, we entered and left our apartment climbing in and out of our bedroom window! hahaha! Just imagine what a sight we made, four girls in skirts climbing in and out of a window! It's a good thing that the window is at the back of our house and no one from the street can see us!
Tuesday morning, my companion woke up throwing up, and one of the other Sisters woke up sick as well. The two of us healthy Sisters climbed out the window and headed to the Farmácia to buy some 'Dramin'. When we returned back to the house, I began to feel sick as well. So, I took some 'Dramin' and laid down to see if I could get feeling better by the afternoon to get out and work. Imagine - on a normal day I can sleep like a rock in qualquer lugar e em qualquer momento...add some medicine with a strong sleeping effect, and I sleep like a dead person. Literally, I laid down at around 9:00 am, and when I returned to conciousness, it was 7:00 pm!! Needless to say, my companion and I didn't get out to work on Tuesday. The next few days of walking in a constant state of 'soaked' because of the rain were perfect to recuperate! Yet, the Lord blessed us because of our diligence and sacrifice. On Saturday our investigator Josivan was baptized!!!
