To Brazil!

On Tuesday, May 15, we’re scheduled to board a plane in Lansing, MI, at 8:20 p.m. and arrive in Sao Paulo, Brazil on Wednesday. This is the culmination of many answered prayers (concerning packing, shipping, plane tickets, visas, travel, sharing our burden for Brazil, and open doors to minister.) We thank all of our friends for the support that you have shown us since we started on our deputation ministry. We give the Lord the glory for all that He has accomplished- "Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it."

Now more than ever we need your prayers.

PRAY for traveling mercies on our long flight Tuesday & arrival in Brazil on Wednesday.
PRAY for our family transition into a new culture and for our language studies. (Myla already knows Portuguese. She’ll make up a word and insist, “That’s Portuguese!”)
PRAY that we’ll have a close with the Lord & be sensitive to ministry opportunities.
