Here Comes the Fall!

Psalm 27:14 - Wait for the Lord; Be strong and let your heart take courage; Yes, wait for the Lord.

I love the fall season!  The cooler air, the changing leaves, and the wonderful traditions are all reasons fall is my favorite time of the year.  Fall for me, however, also brings with it a sense of anticipation.  When is the next step going to come?  When will I be able to move from the job I'm not all that fond of?  The verse above reminds me that the Lord's timing is always perfect.  At times that is hard for me to swallow, but He certainly does not have to prove himself!  So, I need to wait.  Wait and not take for granted the amazing blessings I have in my life.

We are currently over 50% of our monthly support goal.  Our prayer now is that the Lord will clearly show us new opportunities for us to present our love and passion for Portugal.  Please let us know if there might be a possibility of us sharing at your home church!  We are ready and willing to come and share!

Please be in prayer as Pastor Figueira is in Mozambique for the next couple of weeks.  He is there to continue his work of teaching pastors how to raise up new leaders within their respective churches.  Pray that his time there is fruitful, safe, and God-honoring.

I am excited as youth soccer at our church that I am privileged to lead begins September 17.  I thank the Lord for the opportunity, and would appreciate your prayers that the program would bring praise to Him.

Thank you so much for your love and prayer!  We are so blessed to have you alongside us!
