The BIG move!!

WOW!! The time has finally arrived! We are starting a new church in the biggest city in Brazil: São Paulo!
On Monday we begin our 20 day road trip from Fortaleza to São Paulo. We have been dreaming about this for many years! Here in Fortaleza we have finally transitioned our network and cell groups to our disciples who will carry on the explosive growth, winning Fortaleza for Jesus!

Together with a large team of pastors and volunteers, we will begin another missionary minded church in the heart of Brazil. We are facing many challenges, but we know God is going before us and preparing the way!
Please pray for us!  

1. For protection on our journey down

2. that we will find the perfect apartment to rent

3. continued financial provision! São Paulo is a more expensive place to live, and since the voltage is different there, we will have to purchase new appliances.  
If you feel led to partner with us by personally supporting us in prayer and financial help, give online by clicking the side bar!

Your prayer and support are making a HUGE difference!!!
much love,

Isaiah, Erin, Noah, and Bella

Happy New Year from Brazil!

Praise God for what He is doing here in Fortaleza!  We have seen so many people giving their lives to Christ this year.  We are constantly hearing testimonies from our close friends and leadership team of family members being saved, new leaders being raised up, new cell groups opening and multiplying, and even new churches being planted!

Our Amazing Discipleship Team

We have seen miraculous growth in 2015.  We began the year with 91 cell groups under our supervision, and have reached 143 cells spread throughout the entire state of Ceará!

And we know, THIS IS ONLY THE BEGINNING!

If you would like to help us continue our ministry here in Brazil, it’s not too late for a year-end, tax-deductible gift. Give a gift

We love you and are eternally grateful for your prayers and support!

Spreading the Gospel,

Isaiah, Erin, Noah, and Bella Huber

We are moving!

spIn August of 2016 we will be moving to São Paulo!  Along with a group of over 300 missionaries, pastors, and volunteers, we are being sent to the heart and “epicenter” of all of Brazil.  This has been very carefully planned and thought out for many years, and the time has finally come for this epic church planting strategy to take place.  We believe São Paulo will be our focal point for raising up large teams of local missionaries to plant powerful missionary minded churches in all of the big cities of Brazil, and eventually the world. We’ve realized that if we focus our efforts and work together, we can reach many more people with the Gospel.  We are actually continuing a strategy, called “Acts in Action”, that has worked well in the past, for example, in the city of Boa Vista, after 5 years, it was already the largest local church in town.  Also, here in Fortaleza, after 9 years we have reached 8,500 members in the home church in the city, and 109 churches in our state of Ceará.

We are not looking forward to saying goodbye to all our disciples, cell groups, and leaders we have worked so hard to raise up, but we are excited for what God has in store for us São Paulo!
Please agree in faith with us for an increase in our financial support as the cost of living in São Paulo is much higher.  We are confident that God will provide for us in miraculous ways and are so grateful for your continued generosity!!  You are part of this!!

Redemptive Lift

Here’s a quick story about a new member of our church plant. Two Sundays ago, as I gave the alter call, we were thrilled to see Evaneira coming back to Jesus. She has quite a rough history including drug use in the past. She currently lives in a mud shack along with a man who is waiting for surgery because of a hernia, and an eight month old baby boy. When I saw her mud hut I could hardly believe that was her home. We knew something had to be done! So the local church family has gotten together and has already started to build this little family a simple but new little brick house. Take a look at these pictures below!   Evaneira helping clear the lot

 Her current home that is falling apart, made of mud and sticks

We feel privileged to not only bring the Good News about Jesus to this city, but also help care for people’s physical needs!  

Love

Isaiah, Erin, Noah, and Bella Huber

Let’s go farther together!!

If you feel that God would have you help us to help build this house for this family please let us know or simply click here to donate!

God’s extravagant love for Brazil!

I really believe God has something very special planned for Brazil in the near future, and we feel so privileged to be part of His plan.

We arrived in Fortaleza just more than 5 years ago and have seen God open doors in miraculous ways.  We have worked hard and seen amazing growth; we know God is solely responsible and give all the glory to Him.

I’ve had a dream for while to start a new church plant or satellite campus in a certain low income neighborhood that is farther away from our main campus, making it difficult for people to attend much less bring friends and family in need of Christ. 

Keeping in mind that the lack of funds has been an issue, I began searching for a building that would cost us nothing!  What I found was the back yard of one of our members who graciously offered his own house as a church. 

We began meeting at his place 4 months ago with 40 people in attendance, open air, under the stars, hoping for no rain, and now there are about 80-90 people already!  We have seen many salvations and quite a few people miraculously healed including a young man who actually threw away his glasses because God healed his eyesight, and a 7 year old boy who was 70% deaf whose hearing has been COMPLETELY restored!

In the meantime, our other satellite campus is healthier than ever!  We assumed as pastors with roughly 80 people, and now there are more than 190!  Almost every week there is at least one cell group multiplying!  In our state, Ceará, we now are supervising 113 cell groups, we know that this is only the beginning!

A few weeks ago these 4 kids came up to Isaiah after the service and asked him to lead them in the prayer to accept Jesus into their hearts.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Merry Christmas from the Hubers!!

2014 has been a year of growth in all areas of our life. Here is a quick synopsis of what we have been up to:

pasted-image-small-23Bella was born January 5. She is a sweet, smiley and all around happy baby. Noah has adjusted very well to being a big brother and is already a protective older brother.

Isaiah has continued to travel all around Brazil speaking at conferences and young adult camps. He is trying to travel a bit less to have more time to dedicate to the work here in Fortaleza but really enjoys encouraging the church around Brazil.

pasted-image-small-29

Our work with cell groups continues to grow but, of course, there are always challenges and problems to be solved. We are learning to depend more and more on the Lord’s leading in problem solving and continue to check our heart’s motivation remembering that this work is His before it is ours. Praise the Lord that we don’t have to have all of the answers! We currently provide spiritual pasted-image-small-26covering for 95 cell groups and two churches. We are blessed to have faithful and passionate disciples who help us supervise and take good care of those that God has put under our supervision!!

Noah started Brazilian preschool in July with the goal of him learning to speak Portuguese. It was a rough adjustment at first but he now pasted-image-small-19looks forward to going and is slowly beginning to understand more. We love hearing him beginning to speak Portuguese and now have to figure out which language he is speaking when we don’t understand something he says:)

Erin’s younger brother, Jesse, got married in October and we were able to go back to the U.S. to take part. When we got back to Brazil, Isaiah’s parents were here to visit. pasted-image-small-17As always we greatly enjoyed our time with family and friends. We especially loved getting to watch Noah and Bella with our parents, they sure love their grandparents!!

We began pastoring a satellite church in the greater Fortaleza metropolitan area called Itaitinga. It has been a great experience for us in learning all of the small details that are involved in pastoring a church.pasted-image-31

We are currently in the process of starting another satellite church that will be pastored by our disciples Marcio and Deborah. We have come across some complications with the building we were going to use, so please pray that God will miraculously provide a building for this new church and that we would be able to reach many new people in these new neighborhoods!!

We LOVE you so much!! MERRY CHRISTMAS from our little family to yours!! Isaiah, Erin, Noah, and Bella Huber

Encounter with God weekend

Every couple months, the church does what we call an encounter with God weekend. During this encounter, new believers are completely immersed in Godly teaching, fellowship,intense inner healing and freedom from sin. It’s a truly amazing experience, and people always return completely on fire for God! We love it!
Until now, Erin and I have been constantly sending new believers. Sending meaning preparing them and helping them pay their way as it costs about $60 per person.
As more and more people get saved, it has become harder for us to financially help more people. So I wanted to give YOU a chance to help us send more new believers to these fantastic encounter retreats.
I would like to challenge you to “adopt a convert” by helping them financially cover the cost of this life-changing experience.
If you can help, please let us know!! Together we can go much farther!

Doing our part!
Isaiah, Erin, and Noah
