It’s fun meeting neat people who love the Lord and are about His kingdom business. And it’s fun sharing what is on our hearts and God’s heart about missions.
We miss our home church, Salem Baptist Church, on Sunday mornings and often pray for you on our drive to church wherever we are. But there is something very cool about walking into another meeting of believers and hearing them start to worship our God and Savior Jesus Christ, often using the same songs we know from back home. It makes us realize that the Body of Christ is bigger than we know. It also makes us think about how awesome heaven is going to be, when we are all together – people from every local church gathered into the Bride of Christ and adoring Him together. That’s why we do what we do. Because there are others…
We know that God has purposed to gather a people for Himself from every tribe and tongue and nation.
So that’s why we spend our time meeting with whoever wants to meet with us in their homes, churches, youth groups, or Awana clubs, and talking about the tribes in the jungle of Brazil that are still without the message of reconciliation through Jesus Christ. And we are loving it.
We might possibly stay out West longer, since we may be able to meet with more people and churches if we do. That would mean we might be getting back to Wisconsin later in the spring than we originally planned. That just shows that God is answering prayers! Thank you all of you who are praying with us.
Love from the Rich family,
Jevon, Danica, Cali, Karina, and Isaiah
We are meeting new people and making new connections.
The Lord has raised our promised support from 20% to 34%.
Jevon is getting more comfortable in front of people and is enjoying giving his presentation more and more.
Continued opportunities to share with families, churches, individuals, and small groups the work that God has put in our hearts to do.
Continued spiritual growth for each of us in preparation for the move to Brazil.
