Getting ready to go back to Brazil!

Dear Prayer Partners,

As many of you already know, we have been enjoying a wonderful furlough here in the US. It has been a great time of re-connecting with friends and family and we are so blessed to have each and every one of you in our lives.

We are frantically packing now to return to Brazil tomorrow night. We will fly out of the Philadelphia airport around 7 p.m. to arrive in Porto Alegre, ironically, on July 4th.

As far as we know, we are returning to our same assignment. Despite major structural changes at the IMB, we are—at least for the time being—headed back to Porto Alegre to our same position.

We ask for your prayers as we return to Brazil:

--for our families as we say goodbye,
--for Café, our cat, as she makes the trip with us,
--for our trip through Brazilian customs. Ideally, we’ll just walk through without any delays, searches, notices, or charges,
--for our arrival at our apartment, which has been closed up for a year in a semi-tropical climate, and
--for our internet and phone service to be connected quickly.

We also ask for your prayers as we return to our ministry in Porto Alegre, that our steps would be ordered by God towards His assignments for us.

And, finally, we ask for your prayers for our mission leadership as they make difficult decisions and announcements in these times that are trying for most people and organizations.

We are so thankful for your prayers. Truly, they enable us to continue to live, serve and minister on the mission field.
