Welcome to the first official For We Care (FWC) Brazil 2012 blog! As departure day, March 16th, is fast approaching I will begin to introduce team members to you on a regular basis. I will also, as details become finalized, present the project and random facts about Brazil, Florianopolis, and our travels to you. So thanks in advance for reading and your support.
First to be introduced...
Jeff & Anita Reichel
Hi! My name is Anita Reichel. I live in Trochu AB with my husband Jeff, who I happened to meet on this very missions trip 2 years ago. I work at the Red Deer Hospital as an RN.
Two years ago was my first time being in Brazil. I enjoyed my experience beyond a short introductions worth and therefore can simply say I am so excited about having the oppurtunity to go once again. I'm most excited to see what God will do and the doors He will open. I decided to go into nursing 9 years ago because I wanted a practical way to show God's love to others. I am passionate about this trip because that is exactly what we do, we practically serve the people of Brazil buy building and serving them in a way they are unable to do for themselves.
I (Jeff) work on the family farm and grew up in the Trochu area. This is my 4th trip to Brazil with FWC. I am especially greatful for my last trip where I met my wife Anita who I love very much.
I am looking forward to the beaches, warm weather and sun, but more so, seeing the Rehab facility completed to a self sustaining level.
We are so excited to be going on this adventure once again.
Please pray for each team member that is going as we prepare for departure, that our hearts would be open to the work God wants to do both in us and those we interact with while there.
To God be the Glory!
