Back in Brazil

Hello Everybody,

I've made it back to Brazil. I must say that my time in the USA was quite good! Thank you to all who helped me get there. The conference for School of the Bible was amazing. I really felt the prescence and care of God during that time as well as hearing all the news from other School of the Bible teams around the world. It was really blessed.

During the other weeks it was great to see friends and gain some new supporters. I also shared the vision and news of our work the past couple of years in four churches. As well as serving a Brazilian meal in one church for and interesting way of sharing about the ministry God has for us here.

Please pray for us as we continue to prepare for the next School of the Bible. We are working on reforming the bathrooms and preparing a space for a dormitory in the classroom building, as our ministry location is attempting to host 60 students this year at one time because of the Nations to Nations DTS that will be happening at the same time as the School of the Bible. So that can be a challenge. Perhaps I will be communicating some needs concerning that these next few weeks.

I already miss the good American food, and the conveniences of American life I had during those weeks, but we have a job to do here. Pray for us these coming weeks that God's anointing can flow in this next school. That all can be excellent as we work to reach this nation.

USA Trip coming to a close

My trip here to the USA has been a good experience.  And I'm about to travel back to Brazil on Wednesday.  I must say the School of the Bible conference was a great time.  God's presence was strong and it was like heaven seeing everybody.  God I believe re-energized a lot of us.  I'm very excited about what God will do through School of the Bible around the world.  School of the Bible teams joined together from South Africa, Nicaragua, Brazil, Wisconsin, Texas, and Jamaica.  We encouraged each other with prayer and fellowship.  It was really neat to see the work that God is doing around the world with other teams. 
I think God is expanding what the wants to do and bring about these next few years.  He wants people to understand his Word and to apply that truth to real life.
Also I've been visiting churches here in Minnesota sharing about the ministry God has called us to down in Brazil.  In Grand Rapids I shared in a number of churches as well as serving a Brazilian meal to those wanting to get a good taste of Brazilian culture.  And I've been able spend Thanksgiving with my family which was a huge blessing.  All my parent's children were together for the first time in a number of years.
Thankfully we have connected with some old and new supporters.  And that God provision and blessing is coming about.
