A few days have elapsed since the last entry in this blog. I realize that some of you have come to depend on this space for all your Brazil and missions-related news. With that in mind, the following is a summary of the important news from the period of my absence.
Raindrops Keep Falling…
The heavy rains continue in northeastern Brazil. This article gives details on the damage caused by the flood. Pray for our many missionaries in this area, as well as for the Brazilian believers themselves.
Strike(ing) Force
The Federal Police in Brazil are on strike. This is, of course a major problem. Of particular interest to us is the fact that the Federal Police have jurisdiction over the airports, several of which we will be visiting in less than two weeks.
Our Activities
Since our arrival in Florida, we have been busy with preparations for our upcoming trip to Brazil. The date (the 20th) is approaching quickly, and we are excited about it. There is much yet to be done. Please pray for us as we wrap up the final details.
