This site highlights the ministry we do in the Amazon Jungle. 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 Brazil.

Quick Update: March 12, 2018
Coming back from the U.S. is always exciting, filled with great encouragement, more focused in vision, restocked with some of the simpler pleasures in life, and knowing that we are returning to what we were created to do. At the same time, perhaps less spoken of, is the sense of separation we go through again, leaving family and friends behind, leaving the ease of North American life, the simplicity of buying anything your heart desires or the confidence of being able to fix something that is broken in the house without having to ‘MacGyver” it.
And here we are, back in country for a week, working our way back into a routine with home schooling, repairing the things that somehow break even when you are not there, and preparing for our next trip into the village which will be next week, Lord willing.
We went to Church last night and reconnected with our other group of friends and family, and yet, oddly, we sense a separation between our friends and family, whether they are here or in the U.S. This is when we rely on the truth of God’s word, “Now then we are ambassadors for Christ”.2Co 5:20 Ambassadors…….”people who are residents in a foreign land, people who try to be part of that foreign culture but are actually never integrated fully into it…they are representatives of and spokesman for the country they are from.” This is how we felt before coming to a foreign land. And in reality, how we feel being here now.
We pray continually for the peace that passes all understanding(Phil 4:7), discernment(1Co2:14), the love of Christ to pour out of us(Eph 3:19) and mercy and grace to be the things which shine forth.(Micah 6:8)
Next week, after arriving in the village, we plan to take a trip on the Indian boat 14 hrs further up river and do another Bible Conference at a village we have previously visited two other times, and where we look to possibly start a church plant later this year. Melissa will stay in village #1, with plans to do Women’s training in both villages #1 and #2, #2 being where we are planting a church and have knew believers.
When I return from up river, we will start Baptism classes in village #2 and continue with leadership training in both 1 and 2.
Please pray for this trip. Please pray for the people whom we are ministering to. Pray for strong leaders to be developed, a good children’s ministry to start in village #2, and for someone to be called to go up to village #3 to start a church plant. Also pray for the other villages downstream from us who have been asking for us to bring the Word of God to them. Also pray for Linelma, who is staying in the mission base while we are gone.
We will be travelling from March 20-April 6th.
