For We are His Workmanship

The young men and women of our church here in Porto are a true encouragement to me. They have a genuine love for the Lord, and it is evident that they desire to make an impact for the Lord in Portugal.  It is a privilege for Caryne and I to be a part of their lives, and we are humbled that we can serve the Lord alongside them.

Thank you all for being precious partners in this ministry!

Todo Mundo Esta de Ferias!

Things slow down a bit here in the month of August.  Most Portuguese take vacation (ferias) this month, so activity is not quite at its normal pace.

This past Wednesday we finished up painting dear Maezinha's house (see the results here). It was a true blessing to see the joy on her face as she looked at her newly refreshed home.  We then played soccer this past Saturday evening, and the game included three men that do not know the Lord.  Please be in prayer as we seek to have opportunity to share Christ through the game of soccer.

Please be in prayer for a very difficult situation going on at the moment involving a very special family within our church.  Much wisdom is needed in these next few days, and your prayers would be truly appreciated.

Thank you so much for being alongside us here, and for being a part of what the Lord is doing in Portugal!
