GIVE THANKS TO THE LORD!
"It is good to give thanks to the LORD, to sing praises to your name, O Most High."
This is the season to reflect on God’s goodness and to be thankful. We give praise to the Lord because he is worthy, but we also give him thanks for his many blessings.
This month we had the opportunity to share about our ministry in a church for the first time. After our presentation, someone came to talk to us. Her name was Mary Ann and she said that she was from a different town but she “happened” to be there that Sunday. She told us that she really believes that the Lord would use us in Brazil and that she wanted to become our supporter!
It was awesome to see God’s providence bringing Mary Ann to be there on the same Sunday we were there, in what seemed to be a coincidence but in reality, it was God’s hand at work. We are so thankful for God’s provision through our supporters. Thank you for your prayers, encouragement, and partnership in the ministry.
•Naturalization is the next step for Jr. to be able to continue residing in the United States. Please pray for this process to go well.
•Support-raising is going well, but please pray that the Lord will help us to remain steadfast, making good connections with churches and individuals who will partner with us.
•Our current ministry at East Side Baptist Church is key for us to continue to grow and to prepare for our ministry in Brazil. Pray that the Lord will continue to use us to bless those we serve faithfully.
What are you thankful for? How have you seen God’s providence in your life? Share your reasons for thanksgiving as well as any prayer requests for us to pray for you.
We wish you a happy Thanksgiving!
