Trip to the Northeast

We are back from our trip to the northeast.  The Lord continues to bless as we had a great time sharing our passion for Portugal in Connecticut and New York.  We spoke on Wednesday night, June 29, at my father's church in North Haven, CT.  We were so overwhelmed with the response from the awesome people at North Haven Bible Church.  The Lord has His hand on that congregation, and it is a privilege to have them alongside us in this ministry.

On July 3 we had the joy of speaking at Caryne's father's church in Wevertown, NY.  A great number of extended family was able to join us, and we praise the Lord as Isabel was dedicated to Him at the service.  In addition, two children of my brother-in-law, Yavneah and Azariah, were also dedicated.  My parents, sister, and Nana were with us that day, what a blessing!  We thank the Lord for the love and support of Caryne's wonderful home church!

On Monday, July 4, we were again blessed as the Word of Life Family Campground dedicated their softball field to my Nana Darling.  The Lord led my grandparents to begin the campground many years ago, and the field is a reminder of what He has done through them.

Please be in prayer for some upcoming trips.  I am heading to New York, July 15 and 16, to share our plans for Portugal to members of a church in Syracuse.  I will then be traveling to Iowa, July 28, to attend the wedding of Pastor Figueira's son Levi.  Please pray for traveling mercies, and that these opportunities will be fruitful.

Praise the Lord we are currently at around 50% of our monthly support goal.  What fun it is to watch the Lord reveal His perfect will!  Thank you so much for your prayer, love, and support!
