"He alone is my rock and my salvation"

All Glory to Him
We recently had a very blessed and emotional day that included celebrating the wedding of a young couple in our church, followed by a baptism service.  One of the men baptized was a recent convert that accepted the Lord through our prison ministry!  He was granted time to leave the prison, and in this short time he came and was baptized at our church!

On the Move
We are moving!  Because of some complicated issues regarding our current place of residence, we have come to the difficult conclusion that it is necessary for us to move.  We will still be living in Greater Porto, about 10 minutes from where we are now.  We covet your prayers, as the move will mean a new school for the girls, and a new community to immerse ourselves in.  Please be in prayer as we get to know the town we are moving to, that the Lord would open up opportunities to share the Gospel, and that we would be ready and willing to take those opportunities!  We are excited for what the Lord has in store!

As some of you have probably already heard, we recently found out that we are having a boy! The due date is April 6, 2016.  Please be in prayer for mom and baby.

Thank You!
It is truly awesome to have all of you as partners in the ministry here in Portugal!  If you have any questions, or if we could be in prayer for you in a specific matter, please don't hesitate to email us at


  1. Hi Jeff and Caryne, thank you for the update. It is so good to hear that you are doing well. We are so glad to hear of the man getting saved and baprized. That is what ir is all about!
