We were also able to make great contacts with government officials and are eager to look into future outreaches in the area. Pray for the seeds that were planted, and the long work ahead to reach the Mirandesas.

Next week, we are partnering with a nearby Portuguese church to use an American volunteer team for evangelism, training, and encouragement. Pray for the church in Aveiro as they reach out to the city, and for both the Americans and Portuguese to be encouraged by one another.

On a family-level, please pray for Elisabeth as she’s been having trouble sleeping well through the night. Less sleep makes for less endurance in a second culture. She’s also been slow to gain weight, which creates added stress and more doctor’s appointments. Pray for answers and wisdom, perseverance and contentment!
