Over the years I have told anybody who would listen that my wife, Itacyara, is an essential part of what we do here in Brazil. Actually, that phrase – “an essential part” – doesn’t adequately express what I mean. She is the glue that holds everything together, the key to any success we may have, the main attraction, the whole enchilada.
With that in mind, I thought I’d use today’s post to highlight the manifold ways Itacyara (aka “The Brazilian Bombshell) makes this ministry what it is.
Itacyara has a natural way with children, and they consistently return her affection. She is much in demand for Sunday Schools, Vacation Bible Schools, and other ministries to kids.
Since day one Itacyara has been heavily involved in ministering to the ladies of the local church.
Participation in the worship team at Good News Baptist Church gives Itacyara an outlet for her musical talents.
Itacyara is a gifted teacher, and not just for children.
Many people have commented on pictures we have posted on social media of Itacyara’s flower gardens here at the house. Besides making our own dwelling much more pleasant, they also serve to make our home the perfect place to receive guests…which we do on a frequent basis.
Itacyara’s magic touch can be seen at the camp as well, in innumerable projects she has undertaken to make our facilities more attractive.
What I have posted here are just some of the more prominent ways Itacyara makes our ministry what it is. Every day, in hundreds of great and small ways, her touch is felt in lives impacted, to the glory of God.
