South Sudan, Boston and Japan!

2013 has been a year of challenges so far for the Huber family although we believe these obstacles mean God has good things to come for us and our ministry here. Isaiah just returned this morning from preaching at a youth camp on the Amazon and tomorrow will turn around and travel to Africa. He will be training pastors in South Sudan, the newest country in the world, in the cell group and the discipleship model that we use here.  South Sudan is a brand new mission field since the country just opened up and the pastors there are excited and hungry to learn whatever they can. We are excited that Isaiah has the privilege of investing in their lives and ministries! After Isaiah’s trip we will be meeting in Boston where we’ll spend a few days with my side of the family and then on to Japan to visit Isaiah’s parents and 2 of our churches. We haven’t been back to Japan together since we’ve been married,  so we are excited to revisit where we made our first memories together!

Prayer Requests:

-Our disciples/cell groups while we are gone. Please pray that they will continue to passionately seek intimacy with Christ while we are gone and that each one will grow more dependent on Him through the individual trials they have faced in the past couple of months.

-Please pray for Isaiah’s safety as South Sudan is a relatively unstable country and that he will be able to get his tourist visa at the airport without any trouble.  Pray that the Holy Spirit will lead him to teach exactly what the South Sudanese pastors need to learn in a way they are able to understand.

-Please pray that God will provide the best place for us to live when we return to Brazil. We have been living with another family in between moves as there have been some problems with the documentation of the house that we were planning on moving in to.

    Hello, my name is Lindsay Childers. I am praying for your prayer request. I went on a mission trip to Santarem in July 2011. I absolutely fell in love with mission work. I have always known that it is something I want to do and am even more positive since I have been on my visit to Brazil. I spent time with Nate, Ruth, Joanne and Ken Reutter. I am from El Paso, IL and used to attend church at New Life Christian Church in Morton, IL, Joanne and Ken’s home church. I am getting ready to go back to Brazil for a second trip in June of this year and am very excited. I am going to talk to Joanne about how to get involved. When I read your update about the Sudan, I couldn’t help but be sooooo interested as I have always wanted and wondered if I may end up serving in Africa. God bless you both….thanks for doing what you are doing. It matters and the Lord is pleased with your efforts. Lindsay
