MERRY CHRISTMAS to all our family, friends and partners in ministry! Greetings in
the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Time does fly. Thank God that in spite of all our health issues, I´m still able to
continue to preach and teach. Doctors say I have Parkinson’s and my right hand
wants to shake all the time, and I get a little forgetful sometimes, amongst other
issues. But as long as Vicki and I can, we will continue to serve the Lord in Brazil.
My messages and Bible studies are being typed and made available for pastors,
workers and also members of the churches that so desire, to give them a better
understanding of the grace message, so it can be preached, taught and lived. This
involves spending many hours of study each day.
I now have about a hundred messages on the computer that I send to people by
e-mail (in Portuguese). Also not being able to move around as much as before, I
started a ministry evangelizing, encouraging, teaching and exhorting people by
Vicki continues her ministry with Project ABBA helping our daughter Michelle,
and also is involved with music at our Boa Viagem church and assisting our workers with women at Jardim Jordão church.
Many of you know that we were married in Brazil November 28th 1966 – 52 years
ago. In October Vicki turned 70 and I´m still 39+ + + . Our daughters, Adriana and
Daniela who live in the States, along with Michelle, surprised her with a beautiful
70th birthday party. First time in years we had all our three daughters with us.
What a blessing it was to us!
Heartfelt thanks to those of you that continue to support us through your prayers
and financially. We would just love to see you all again before the rapture. If we
don´t, we will all be together in glory for sure.
Do let us hear from you. Our NEW e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
May we all use Christmas and New Year’s telling others about our wonderful Lord
and Savior Jesus Christ.
In His love and grace,
Doug and Vicki
