My Summer Teaching Brazilians in Canada

One dream summer for me would be to drive across Canada. There is so much to see there in nature and in urban settings. This summer I will be teaching English for Brazilians living in Winnipeg Canada. Unfortunately due to COVID-19, the lessons will be via Zoom not in person.

Brazilians are so much fun for me to interact with. I studied Portuguese for one year just so I could interact better with my Brazilian friends. One such friend lived in my city while she and her husband were both working on their Masters Degrees. They now live in Winnipeg where the husband is working on his Phd.

They have Brazilian friends there who expressed interest in English class. My friend told them about me, so this week we will begin lessons.

I looked it up on Google Maps and found out Winnipeg is only a 10 drive from my city. If the COVID-19 thing clears up by next summer, I plan to drive up there. Perhaps that will be the beginning of a dream summer for me.

It is exciting for me to see how God fits things together for us. He connects dots for us to complete the big picture. When I first me my friends when they lived in my city, I had no idea it would lead to teaching their friends in Winnipeg. Jesus knows our future because he is eternal. He does not have the boundaries of time.

Thank you for reading, God Bless.
