Thursday night, Mark Blackwelder, director of FHU’s Graduate School of Theology, invited us to a picnic on their farm. Also present were Guilherme Luz, graduating this year, and his parents, Dionísio and Vilma, who came from Brazil for his graduation.
We’ve known this family for decades, since our time in Belo Horizonte. Dionísio and I talked at length about the work he was doing with the Nacional congregation and the end of his local support next month.
After the meal, the group sang songs in English, Portuguese and Slovak around the fire.
