DEAR C.B.M. PARTNERS AND FRIENDS, JANUARY 1, 2022
A very Happy and Prosperous New Year. We wish you and yours the best of health and an exciting 2022 serving our Lord.
Right now, we are in Virginia and hopefully will be going to Florida on January 5 for a few days of reporting and meetings with some of the Jacksonville churches that partner with us. Then we will return to the Ft. Caroline Christian Church to preach on January 16. Our plans are to return to Brazil on January 19.
It was nice seeing some of you at ICOM. It was decided at our CBM Trustees' meeting during the conference that we would be returning to the U.S. to live but would continue leading the Amazon Boat Trips. Michael with our other children will be helping and are ready to take over in the future. We have made this decision looking at the next 5-10 years when we will be slowing down. The mission will be helping us buy a small condo which will probably be in the Springfield, Ohio area. We will put our house in Goiânia up for sale as soon as we return to Brazil.
There are Amazon Boat Trips planned and confirmed by churches for 2022 and 2023. If you are interested in helping us with a trip in 2024 or 2025 please get in contact with us soon. Please pray with us about the airline flights into Manaus and the COVID testing that is still required. If you would like to help with over-the-counter meds that we use on the boat it would be appreciated and a big help for us. Just let us know and we will send you the address of the team that is coming in the next few months.
As you have always done, please continue to pray with and for us and for the Amazon Missionaries and Boat Crew.
Thanks again for your faithful partnership with us and our Project Amazonas: Christ, Life and Health Ministry.
With Much LOVE,
Earl, Ruth Anne and the Amazon Team
