And the answer is…

What would you carry with you when you go to Brasil?

Hmmm… let’s see…

  • I’ve got one Fender electric guitar, brand new, and I don’t even know how to play
  • I have two computers. Actually I have two hands, so it kinda makes sense
  • I’ve got lots of clothes for little kids. In fact, I have very little room for clothes for me.
  • I have an old “gringo” who can’t speak Portuguese
  • I’ve got enough underwear for 8 days but only 2 pair of pants and 5 shirts
  • A Yuengling University baseball cap. I didn’t know that Yuengling was a type of beer. Every missionary needs to be wearing a beer cap!
  • I always pack a TIM sim card for my phone. TIM is the Brasilian equivalent of Verizon or Cingular. AT&T charges me $3 per nano-second if I use their sim chip while in Brasil. Just for the record, I have a São Paulo registered cell phone number.
  • And, finally, I have a bag of chocolate-mint flavored, activated, microfine charcoal — I don’t leave home without it!

  1. You think you got room for a cute little munchkin and her mom????

  2. Leave the gringo, take more shirts.

  3. U mean 2 old gringos 😉 haha, yet one can speak Portuguese lol

  4. Ummmmmmm Dude, if you can’t find anyone to claim the Fender, I need one! Hey! Why can’t I be somebody’s mission field? File under Old, poor, former ministers who love to play guitar but can’t afford to buy one anymore. LOL!

    Leave the mint stuff at home this summer. Just plain old, gritty, waterered-down, chocolate-skim milk tasting charcoal will be fine. Question??? If it has mint, would my tongue be green or black?
