Jesus said, “behold, I say unto you , Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest.” John 4:35 We have been called by God to the Great Harvest happening here in the Amazon Jungle.

Quick Update: February 1, 2017
I was once told that the tribulations and trials we have are the very spice of our lives. Let us remember the words of God, and then the commentary of Paul the Apostle from 2 Co 12:9, “My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.”
We have been battling some sicknesses the last month. These are mostly flu-like things, but here in the humid jungle atmosphere, these simple sicknesses are very hard to overcome. God did have everyone healed in time for our Village Trip on January 10th. It was a little trial for Melissa though, as she was full on flu sickness the day before the trip. She had to make a decision to cancel, which meant that her, Veronica and Ben would stay home, or to go on the trip, trusting that God would heal her. This was no small decision, as we were leaving the city and all contact with medicines. Melissa decided to go. We left on the morning of the 10th, and by the next morning she was completely restored to health. A small trial, but a deep faith building exercise.
Village Ministry: We just returned from a 17 day village trip. The whole family went. We held daily leadership classes and nightly Bible studies along with two services each Sunday. We took a day mission trip to the two villages closest to us. We led by example, after having been asked to lead them into some other villages to share the Good News of Salvation through Jesus Christ crucified and risen again. We are now planning future trips to other villages farther away, villages where there is no evangelical witness, bible, or ministry currently being done. Please pray for these future trips and those who have the desires to share the Word within their own tribal group.
Jardim Tropical: We have started construction on the new community Church building! Artur, his co-laborers and myself placed the pillars in the ground in December. The ground we are working in is part of the run off system from a swampy area. It also includes the run off from under the houses which includes bathrooms and sinks. Needless to say, it requires a call from God and the love He has placed in our hearts to work in these conditions.
Leadership Classes: Please pray for our students, the Christian leaders of Jardim Tropical, as the class was put on hold through the Christmas holiday and January, which is our summer break here in the southern hemisphere. Please pray for a strong re-start of the classes in mid-February.
Home Group: Our home group fellowship also took a break during the holidays/summer vacation time and is now starting back up. Please pray for this group as we lead in the verse by verse teaching through the Bible, focusing on individual growth through Biblical fellowship and communion.
The Boat Ministry: We are now using the boat. You can see pictures of it here: https://www.facebook.com/millers.brazil/media_set?set=a.1260007484049372.1073741882.100001203967024&type=3 We have taken the boat up river to the Indian Village two times now. It is going to open the doors to the neighboring villages up and down the river and allow us to share the Gospel with people and in places where no one else is trying to reach.
Please pray for us and these ministries. Pray for the people we are ministering to. Pray for their hearts, eyes, and ears to be open to everything the Lord has, in all of His richness and wisdom, to grow in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
