GREEN is the “in” color now—at least outside it is! Rainy season has begun early this year and everything is already a glorious GREEN!!! After about 5 months of dry, brown vegetation and lots of dust, it is wonderful to have new green grass and virtually no dust! Everything looks so clean and fresh and beautiful!
One new piece of news is that we were asked by a young Brazilian couple to do some premarital counseling with them. Junior & Tatiana have both graduated from our Brazilian Bible School where they met while studying there. Junior is from a Christian family who lives in southern Brazil. Tatiana is the daughter of some of our Brazilian missionaries who have lived and worked with the Brazilian Language School (that is on the same property as our MK school).
They plan to marry in January 2007. We have only met with them a couple of times, but we are enjoying getting to know them better and trust that we will be a blessing and encouragement to them in this phase of their lives. Please pray for us as we counsel; this is a first for us and it’s also in Portuguese. Please also pray for them as they plan the wedding, grow in their relationship, and seek the Lord for His will in where to serve Him together.
We are into our second quarter of the school year now. Things are going well overall, and we keep busy, as usual, with our many and varying responsibilities. We appreciate your prayers for our day-to-day happenings.
THANK YOU for your care and part in our lives.
“For we are labourers together with God…”
I Cor. 3:9
We really are laborers together. We could not stay here without your support—both through prayers and finances. We really do appreciate YOU!!!
Because He keeps us,
