September Month of Prayer for the Gaucho People

As many of you know by now, my husband Jeff became Strategy Coordinator for our city of Porto Alegre in February of this year. He has designated September the Month of Prayer for the Gaúcho People. He has produced a series of video shorts, available on DVD for use by churches, Sunday School classes, and small groups during this month.

We are asking churches, small groups, and Sunday School classes to dedicate some time either on the Sunday mornings or Wednesday nights during September for a prayer focus for our people. There are 5 short (3-4 minute) DVD clips. We're also making available bookmarks featuring both the city and our team.

If you’d like to request these resources (completely free of charge), just email me here with “Video request” in the subject line. Include your mailing address and the number of bookmarks needed and our United States Support Team (USST), that is, Jeff's mom, will send them out to you ASAP. Please prayerfully consider stepping up and coordinating this special prayer emphasis for our people and our missionaries during September.

Where Have I Been?

Exhausted! That's where I've been these past few months. Our February - June was absolutely gut-wrenchingly hectic. You know, the kind where you spend weeks without a break from the adrenaline of GO-GO-GO. It was largely our own faults--certainly noone else's. Praise God it's behind us and I think we learned a few things about how to not get ourselves in those fixes again.
Then, we took a much-needed vacation in the states with our families. It was a great time and I really learned alot and made some decisions that I'm sure I'll be blogging about soon.
Now we're back, refreshed, and ready to go at it again!
More on that later. . .
