(First official newsletter still to come)
I received an email a couple of days ago from Pastor Antonio (To'), who just returned from the Portuguese speaking country of Mozambique. Pastor To' was there giving workshops to local pastors. Mozambique is one of many nations that have Portuguese as either their official language or there is a large Portuguese speaking population. Countries like Brazil, Angola, Cape Verde, Guinea-Bissau, Macau, and East Timor all have Portuguese as their main language. Even places like Luxembourg have a very large population that speak the language. Pastor To' is actually in the process of planting a church there in Luxembourg, and we will share that story in another entry.
On the local front, our pastor here at our church, Pastor Marvin Suitt of Living Word Baptist, has asked me to head up a kids soccer ministry. I am very excited for the opportunity and covet your prayers as we prepare to get that off the ground in the fall.
The Lord is good!
