I'm so excited!

Thursday night last week, Vinicius and Paula made a decision for Christ! Now comes the hard part....commitment! If you think about it, pray for them.

VBS is going really great. We've had a small crowd but a good one. I really hope it picks up though. I would LOVE to see us have a huge group! It's so fun! We'll see....

Captain Red Beard made an appearance last night. It was so funny. He pulled out this plastic sword and scared a visiting mom. LOL Poor woman! I'm sure she wasn't expecting that when she decided to take her kids to church. She was a good sport though. VBS is so fun!

It's February and it's HOT!

I thought we were going to escape the heat of a brazilian summer. It sure seemed like it. Then it hit this month. hot hot! We have VBS next week. I'm sure we're all going to die of heat stroke. Well, thank God for Heaven and at least we'll die serving! LOL Ok, on to better things.

The ladies retreat was a great success! We saw three precious souls saved. There were not from my church, but they did get saved! Cirica (CEEreeca) is from our church and heard the gospel but did not make a decision. Jeff and I are trying to set up a time to get to her house and really talk to her about the Lord but her husband is quite against it. Please pray she makes a decision soon.

Sunday morning after Sunday School, Isaias and Gabriel came to me telling me they wanted to be saved! They come from a very rough part of town and have been very hard to reach but after months of love and preaching, they finally asked the Lord to save them!

Please pray for VBS next week. I am praying we see 80 in attendance. It is during Carnaval week so I really don't know what's going to happen. Lots of people leave for the last hoorah before school starts. God knows though. Quality, not quantity, amen? If we have 20 and see souls saved, that's good enough for me! We are really praying to get some new families through this.

Oh, we are going to visit Vinicius and Paula tonight. He is Luthern, she's just searching. I pray I can come back here and tell you they both were gloriously saved!

That's it for now! I'm melting......melting.....meeeeelting.........melting!!!!

This weekend

I'll be busy at a ladies retreat. I'm looking forward to it. First of all, because I won't have to spend the night! I love my own bed. Second, because I'll have 2 ladies there who are not saved. Pray for Angela and Cirica.

It's been a very nice summer. Not too hot. The kids have really done well in their school work and look forward to jumping in their pool as soon as school is over with!

We have VBS on Feb. 23-27th. I'm so excited! My prayer is to have 80. I know, I must be out of my mind but that's ok, I'm used to it!

I'll let you know how it all went!
