Pão da Noite

This weekend we had a retreat for some of the kids that come to the clubs. It was a one-night retreat in the same house where we host three of the clubs. We ended up with about 13 kids, and it was a ton of fun! We did a Bible lesson, a couple of crafts, heard a missionary story, played games, and ate lots of food (soup, pancakes, spaghetti, peaches, jello, and fresh, homemade bread).

The entire retreat was a ton of fun (although if I’m being honest, I didn’t love sleeping on the floor), but the most interesting part to me was what they call the “pão da noite,” which translated literally means “bread of the night.” This is basically what my little sister Addie used to call her “bed snack.” However, I’m here to tell you that this beats Little Debbie Fudge Rounds and Oatmeal Cream Pies hands down!!  I was so intrigued by the whole process that I decided to document it in photos and share it with you. I’m just sorry you can’t smell it and taste it fresh from the oven like we did!
