Greetings in Christ,
But thanks be to God, who in Christ always leads us in triumphal procession, and through us spreads the fragrance of the knowledge of him everywhere. 2Co 2:14
Let us give thanks unto God for all that He has done in and through us, and for allowing us to leave a fragrance of Him in everyplace that we go! And we thank you also for being there with us as we minister together, because we are one body in Christ!
Today is Sunday, the 9th of November, and I sit here preparing for my next trip into the Indian Village on Tuesday. I plan to stay there until December 4th, approximately 3 weeks. I have several plans I would like to see accomplished on this trip, 1) Leadership meetings, 2) Genesis studies up to Chapter 15, 3) more intimate time with the people, and 4) construction projects on the house.
Immediately when I return I will meet up with a small Short Term Group from the U.S. and we will head out on a riverboat to do follow-up evangelism and outreaches in some of the communities we visited earlier in the year.
Melissa will be “holding down the fort” while I am gone, visiting the people at both ITV and Jardim Tropical on a weekly basis.
Her trip to the U.S. was fruitful on a couple of different levels. First, she was able to spend some wonderful time together with her mother during the times of anxiety preparing for lung surgery and during the recuperation process. She then accompanied her mother back to Nebraska which allowed her to visit our families there. Second, she was able to sit down with Saving Grace World Missions in California and talk with them about a ministry partnership with us in Brazil.
Through Saving Grace World Missions, we will have a larger support network, which will free up some of my time, allowing me to do the things the Lord has called me to do; minister to the needs of the people.
We ask that from now on you would send all of your tax free financial support through them. I have placed a link on the right hand side of this page for Becoming a Financial Partner, and I am adding new Support Info at the bottom of the page.
Melissa and I would like to thank you for your continued monthly support of our family as we minister to the people here in Brazil.
Here is a list of prayer requests for the coming months.
- The Apurina People
- The people we minister to at ITV and Jardim Tropical
- Our son Junior who is in Concordia Kansas
- Our other children, Andrea, Josiah, Veronica and Benjamin
- Our marriage
- The mission base (we are in the process of purchasing) and for the final resources necessary to pay for it
Please email us or contact us through Facebook, your letters and messages are a great encouragement to us.
Our love is with you as we trust in Christ, who is always leading us in triumphal procession, spreading the fragrance of the knowledge of him everywhere,
Brad and Melissa Miller
