Since our arrival in the US we have become accustomed to answering questions about the Summer Olympics in Rio. As we live roughly two thousand miles from Rio de Janeiro, our answers have been limited.

We do have colleagues, however, who serve in Rio. The Patefield family – Nathan and Dawn – serve with Baptist Mid Missions in Rio. Recently they sent out a prayer letter which not only gives a great overview of the current situation of the city, but also gives details about how they are taking advantage of the great evangelism opportunities there.

Download their prayer letter here, and remember to pray for them now that the Olympics are officially upon us.
