Merry Christmas!!! Celebrating Christmas this year far from family has been a great reminder to us of what we are truly celebrating, the birth of our Savior!! We are living in Fortaleza, Brazil doing church planting and discipleship ministry. Our focus now is to learn church planting/discipleship strategies to eventually be sent out with a Brazilian team to plant churches in unreached areas of the world. Only God knows where at this point but we are praying and asking His direction for the future:). We have really enjoyed discipling and doing leadership training this past year, and are looking forward to what God is going to do in the year to come.
Noah is 1 year 8 months old! He is in such a fun stage of life wanting to learn as much as possible about the world around him. God is definitely teaching us patience through Noah:) His favorite things right now are playing in the mud, going to the beach and playing with our dog Cloe.
Isaiah will be traveling to Africa in February to speak at a pastors conference, teaching about the discipleship model we use here. Noah and I will meet up with him in the states for a few days and then go on to Japan to visit churches and see Isaiah’s parents. It will be our first time back in Japan together since we’ve been married, so that will be really exciting.
Praying that this will be a really special time for you and your family celebrating the birth of Jesus. Sending our love, Isaiah, Erin , and Noah
