Here’s a quick synopsis of what has happened in our lives in 2011.
Ministry-wise, we started out the year getting involved in cell groups and beginning to disciple some new believers. We were faithful members of the cell group and helped it grow until it multiplied and we became the leaders of a new cell group at our own house. Praise the Lord that this new cell group also grew and new leaders were raised up so that it has multiplied as well. Long story short: we are now leading and supervising 4 healthy cell groups. Some of these will multiply now in January and the total number will be 7.
Please continue to pray with us that many lives will be saved and well taken care of. Pray also for our disciples that they will continue to grow in intimacy with Christ!
Family-wise, we have a beautiful, healthy baby boy named Noah. He is now 8 months young! We have been able to see both our families this year and many friends, which has been very encouraging. Erin is learning how to speak Portuguese very well! After Noah’s birth, finding time to study the language has been a real challenge, but she gets lots of practice through discipling and counseling numerous women.
Fund-raising-wise, God has blessed us with faithful supporters who truly care about us. We are currently still in need of an additional $450 per month. If God is speaking to you about partnering with us in this area as well, please feel free to hear and obey 😉
We are sincerely thankful for all our supporters and we pray for you often. May God give you a very blessed new year and may you grow even closer and more intimate with Jesus! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
We love you so much!!
