Great News From Brazil:
We don’t always get the answers we would most want to get when we pray. But this time we have!! Praise God that little baby Ramon had a very important check-up yesterday, and he passed them all with flying colors, mystifying all the doctors!! We pray that the little guy will grow in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man!

Scherles, the young mother with gall and kidney stones, surgeries and infections – went home from the hospital yesterday! Cause for more joy! We don’t know if they will be able to begin their preacher training classes this month……that may be on hold for the time being. But Praise the Lord she seems to be over the worst of it. Please continue to pray for her complete healing.

Joao Gabriel’s first eye surgery was a complete success, and he will have surgery on his other eye next week. Please pray that this next surgery goes as well as the first one.

Ataua is a young man we have been praying as he is in the mission field in the far north of Brazil, working with others – part of an AIM team (Adventures in Missions). All this good news should put a smile on our faces, and much thanksgiving in our hearts to our all-powerful God!! Blessings abound. Continue to pray, always giving thanks! – R and R
