Waiting for spring

Here in Portugal, we are anxiously waiting for spring. In the meanwhile, here is a brief update:

1. In our last two Bible studies, we have had over twenty people present. It’s exciting to have a house full of people hungry for God’s Word. It also makes us anticipate the day when we will worship together on a Sunday in our own building.

2. We are going to put a drop ceiling in our building, and repair and paint the walls. We have had several builders give us estimates on the work that needs to be done, and this week we hope to get started.

3. Over the next several weeks, we will be working on the building, distributing invitations to thousands of homes in our town, and praying that God would strengthen the work He has begun here.

4. We continue to cultivate the many relationships we have with lost people. Pray with us that we would see people saved.

Thank you for keeping up with us!IMG_1965[1]

Taking Laura to the park is one of our favorite things to do. Can you guess why?

  1. Yes, I can surely see *why* the trips to the park are so much fun[?] We here in Marshall (in fact *all* Minnesotans) are patiently waiting for spring, too. It is very chilly (20 degrees) which wouldn’t be too bad, except that the wind is blowing about 30 to 35 mph[?] But we still need to remember that it *is* the day which the LORD has made….and spring *will* come….HE always keeps His promises!

    I enjoy your updates and frequently pray for Paulo, that you’ll have the pleasure of leading him to the Savior. I am so glad you will soon have a regular building for worship, too. May God continue to bless your ministry there!d

    Love & prayers, Donna Dunlap (an older friend here in Marshall ~ who has the privilege of having Pastor for my Pastor, and a great group of friends; brothers and sisters in Christ, at First Baptist!!)

    1. Hi, Donna,

      Thank you so much for your faithful prayer on Paulo’s behalf. I will let you know how things go with him next time I get my hair cut. I will be giving him an invitation to our first church service. I hope he will come.

      Hope all is well there in Marshall. Thanks again for taking the time to communicate with us. It is a true encouragement.
