Couple's Retreat

Hey! I finally get a chance to try my hand at the blog! Antonio and I just returned from our annual couple's retreat. Our theme this year was "Two In One". We had a great time and were edified spiritually. We also had a lot of fun as you can see by the games!

The food was awesome! Here is the breakfast table with many of the fresh fruits in season; watermelon, papaya, mangoes, pineapple, acerola cherries and cachews!

And speaking of cachews, we eat the fruit and throw the nuts away! (because they are in a very acidic covering that can only be burned off in a special oven).

Besides Antonio and I (Lawanda), two other couples went from our church in Pedra 90. Here is Rafael and Geane. They are expecting their first baby in April 2008.

The other couple is Adilson and Lucimar. Here he is "trying" to make his wife beautiful by applying her makeup and fixing her hair while blindfolded!

Can you guess what the camp director (Peter Doolittle) and his wife (Zirlene) are doing? NO THEY ARE NOT! They are unwrapping a candy using only their lips!

For most of the ladies the highlight of the entire retreat is the "serenade" and declarations of love made by the men at 1:30 am outside of the ladies dorm! Make plans to join us next year for our Couple's Retreat on the 1st and 2nd of November, 2008.
