Another year is in the books, and what an amazing year it has been! We have added another child to the family. God has moved us to transition from our work in São Paulo to start a new work in the northeast of Brazil. We have had to say goodbye to all of our friends there in Guarulhos. These are exciting times, but definitely challenging ones as well. Through it all, you have supported us, prayed with us, and sent notes and letters of encouragement. Many have allowed us to come by your churches while we are in the States to update all of our supporters about the new area of our focus in Brazil. Thank you for your faithfulness!
I would just like to give you a brief recap of what the Lord has done this year through our ministry, both in our main church and in some others that we have helped to start:
• Over 1,200 people were saved out door knocking.
• Almost 100 were saved in church services.
• Over 20 were baptized in our church.
• Four new families were discipled and became very involved in the ministries.
• The church in Guarulhos took on their first 2 missionaries for support by Faith Promise.
• We held surveys in 3 major cities in the northeast of Brazil and have the potential to start churches in each of them.
• We held evangelistic campaigns in 4 cities in Brazil, with many, many salvation decisions, some baptisms, and folks added to the church.
We praise the Lord for every soul and for the open doors He provides to further the Gospel. Thank you so much for partnering with us to reach more souls in Brazil. Our desire is to see God do even greater things in the coming year as we plant a church in the northeast of Brazil and begin training several men for full-time Gospel ministry.
Please keep us in your prayers. We will be traveling in the U.S. for a few more months, trying to meet with each of our supporting churches to update them on the vision for the northeast of Brazil. We thank God for each of you. We are honored to represent you on the foreign field.
Declaring His glory,
