7 Weeks and Counting

We have 7 weeks left in formal language study. Can you believe that? We can't. We are so excited about heading to PoA, but at the same time there is so much more that needs to be accomplished in that 7 weeks. Yikes! We are just going to keep plugging away and doing all that we know to do to help us acquire this beautiful language. All the while, we are asking God to work in us and help us to understand and be understood. God is doing a wonderful work in us and I think I can safely say "ALL" of us. We are facing some tough opposition but God continues to show us his faithfulness and grace toward us. We are so thankful that we serve the one true God of the universe who knows all and is all we need. We recognize that without him, we have no ministry and we are willing to do whatever it takes to make his name known among the Brazilians. Please pray that we will be found faithful in doing what he has called us to do. Seven weeks is such a short period of time in the scheme of life and we must take advantage of every opportunity, so please pray also that we will be good stewards with our time and energy.

Thank you all for continuing to lift us up before our Father's throne. We know that he hears the prayers of his people and we have felt his hand upon us.

Seven weeks! How exciting! I can't wait to hear stories from there! The opposition you face is there to let you know that the battle is WORTH IT!

Hey! I've been trying to reach you all by e-mail with no success. It says it can't be delivered! Do you have a new e-mail address?
