DEAR FAITHFUL C.B.M. PARTNERS AND FRIENDS, JANUARY, 2019
Before you get this we might already be back home in Brazil. The Lord has blessed our time in the U.S. during these past three months. Ruth Anne had a successful operation and recovery but is ready to get back to our ministry on the boat. We both are homesick for the crew and the trips. Ruth Anne spent all of this time at Michael´s while I travelled and visited churches. A special thanks to Michael and Debbie for taking care of us during this time.
The crew has worked hard and made all the necessary repairs on the boat as well as repainted the entire boat. Everything is now ready for the next 9 months as we begin our Amazon Boat Trips on February 12. By the end of October we will have done 11 boat trips.
Here are some praises and prayer requests. We depend so much upon your partnership with us and your prayers.
