It is an absolutely gorgeous day in Chillicothe, IL. We are participating in the Daily Vacation Bible School at Calvary Baptist Church. We are half way through the week, and it has been great to see some young people come to know the Lord Jesus Christ as Saviour and others get assurance of their salvation.
We are at the half way point of this furlough ministry. The Lord has given us great meetings with people being saved. He has also blessed in the more than 11,000 miles we have traveled. Speaking of blessings, we are now completely out of debt.
There has also been $6,000 given to the building fund for the activity center at Hope Ranch. Please pray that the remaining funds will come in soon so the construction plans can be finalized.
There are many more miles to be traveled before we go back to Brazil. Our return trip is scheduled for November 17, 2015. There is much planning being done for the 2016 retreats. The internet system has been a great help in that regard. Upon arrival there will be a lot of physical work needed to get ready for the retreats as the first retreat is the counselor training retreat in January. Please pray as the plans and necessary work are completed.
There is an excitement in thinking about returning to Brazil. Along with the retreats at Hope Ranch, we will be involved in the initial stages of the next church plant. Please pray for us as the plans and contacts are being made. Pray also as we visit churches in Brazil promoting the camp. There is so much to do!
Would you also pray for new missionaries to be called and sent to help us in Brazil? There is a great need for people willing to give their lives to the winning of the lost and the training of new believers. We need to plant more churches and develop Hope Ranch to the point that it can better serve the local churches. There is a need for the establishment of a Bible institute at Hope Ranch.
Thank you for your support through prayer and through your gifts. Both are necessary for this ministry.
