Great to hear from you. Wow, sounds like the health issues in the states are going from bad to worse! Keep us posted as to your surgery- we’ll be praying.
Your story about Ashley is so funny- funny how the Lord puts people in our paths! Praise the Lord J
As for the church land in favela Cachoerinha…..I wrote to you a short while back telling you about the two lots that Pete was going to purchase. Well, he did- by faith! We now have two lots in that favela and have started working on getting a base (foundation) started. Pete has been praying and seeking confirmation from the Lord about building, as recently as even this morning during devotion/prayer time with our team, and then your email came in. It was like a light bulb popped on in his eyes and also in Anderson eyes when I was talking to them about the fundraising. They looked at each other and said “confirmation”?! Here are some recent pictures of our team cleaning and clearing out the two lots in preparation for building. It’s been raining a lot here lately which has slowed us up a bit. We have a huge team (30 people) of high school teens and their chaperones coming on the 29th of this month from Tennessee so we’ll probably put them to work somehow helping out there.
