The first week of this month we were privileged to attend the annual meeting of the Baptist Mid-Missions Northeastern Brazil field council. Besides taking care of regional business, these times are always opportunities for fellowship with co-laborers and encouragement in the Word.

This year that encouragement was brought by pastor Dan Mielke, who, together with his wife Christa, had a tremendous impact on our whole mission family.
