Departure to Portugal - June 14!

We have reached a number of milestone's in the past few weeks! Our visa application was sent to the proper authorities. Now we are in prayer that we will be approved for those visas in a timely fashion.  In addition, at the end of March I finished up my employment with Ecolab, a company I have worked with for nearly four years. The Lord has blessed as we have made these steps of faith.  We have been so encouraged by so many of you. Thank you for your prayer, thoughtfulness, and support!

The Lord continues to open up doors for me to share my faith, and to gain experience for the work He has in store for us in Portugal.  I recently was given the opportunity to enter into a local elementary school and share the story of the resurrection of Jesus.  Praise the Lord several children made decisions to accept Him as their Savior!  I was able to do this as a part of an after-school program called the Good News Club, which is put together by Child Evangelism Fellowship.  What a powerful ministry!

We would appreciate your continued prayers, as we face a very eventful next few months!  The month of April is dedicated to the selling and packing of our belongings.  We will also be saying goodbye to our pets, as the Lord has provided new homes for them. Also, we have recently been given the awesome privilege of traveling to Kodiak, Alaska, to speak at Kodiak Bible Chapel.  We have been overwhelmed with the journey the Lord has us on!  Please pray for safety as we travel the weekend of April 22.

The month of May will be filled with time spent with both sides of the family.  The Lord has wonderfully seen fit for us to be able to see all of our extended family on various days during the month.  We will split our time between Pennsylvania, New York, and Connecticut.  We also look forward to sharing our ministry to Portugal at Calvary Bible Church in Derry, NH May 27th.

Finally, in the beginning of June we will travel to the Washington, DC area to attend the wedding of a wonderful Brazilian friend from Portugal.  We will then, Lord willing, fly to Porto, Portugal out of Newark, New Jersey on June 14th.

It is such a privilege to be a small part of the work of God's kingdom.  Thank you for coming alongside of us in our love for Portugal!
