In terms of Kingdom work, I hate Januarys (or should that be Januaries?). It’s the big vacation month, and people disappear. The work nearly comes to a stop. I’m not condemning people for traveling, mind you, but it takes a bite out of efforts for the Lord. And then in February (sometimes it’s March) comes Carnaval. There’s a saying in Brazil that the year only starts after Carnaval. In some ways, that’s true.
