He is Exalted!


In the past three weeks three people have accepted Christ as their personal Lord and Savior through the ministry of our church.  Praise the Lord!  We are so excited to see how the Lord is using this community of believers here in northern Portugal!

Church Plant

Our church is currently going through the process of establishing a new church in a town called Trofa.  We appreciate your prayers for our leadership as all the details are worked out.  The priority has always been that through everything the Lord will be glorified, and the Gospel will advance.  Please pray that in this time of transition, that priority will remain steadfast.

Caryne and I will be celebrating our 10th wedding
anniversary on June 7.
Caryne's Pregnancy

Our fourth child has not arrived yet, but we are getting close!  Caryne and the baby are doing well.  Please pray for strength and good health for them both.  Please also pray for Anadia, Cora, and Isabel, as once their new sibling arrives they will have to spend a few days with Pastor Antonio's family.  We are so thankful for such a loving and helpful church family!

Bible Study/Youth

Please also continue praying for the youth of our church.  They face very difficult challenges ahead, as Portugal remains in financial crisis.  Our prayer is that they will place their relationship with the Lord above anything else in their lives, as only in Him is there peace and clarity.  We continue to have weekly Bible studies with some of the young men, and we will also begin to have more frequent weekend get-togethers to study God's word.  Thank you for your continual prayers for the young people.

We praise the Lord for your partnership!
