Our trip around the world continues. This country is the largest one in South America, and the fifth largest country in the world. It’s flag is readily recognizable by many people in the US, as there are cultural fingerprints left in various areas here.
Our friend, Gustavo shares a little more about his country of origin.
What is your country of origin?
I am from a very ethnically diverse country called Brazil.
What is the primary language(s) spoken?
The primary language spoken is Portuguese.
Olá! Tudo bem? Which means “Hello! How’s it going?”
We have a lot of different fruits and vegetables. Many of them are not available in the US. But my favorite food is called Pamonha. Its made from grinding corn into a nice sweet paste, adding a few ingredients, then cooked inside the corn husk in water.
What 3 things do you want/wish people knew about your country or culture?
Brazil is a wonderful country. It has amazing natural resources and very friendly people who despite all the social economic problems, always find a happy way to go about life.
How can people pray for your country/culture?
Please pray for all the people who don’t have access to education and culture and end up being manipulated by the greedy and corrupt politicians.
Please also pray for the children who don’t have access to opportunities of any kind as many start working really early to help with finances. They end up never going to school and often times end up living a life of crime.
