A New Season of Ministry in Brazil


History –

For six years, Lane and I had been living in a. beautiful mobile home community in Melbourne Beach, Floria. We loved our house, we loved our location, walking distance to the beach and to the Indian River.

However, there were other factors that the Lord was working on in our lives. One, there were NO ministry doors that opened the entire time we were there. Second, Lane had a lot of “loose ends” she was trying to deal with in Brazil. A stolen bank account that needed to be restored, her retirement that needed to be renewed each year in person (“proof of life”), and apartment that she sold, but the buyer hadn’t made payments in 2 1/2 years, and more.

In 2022, we spent four months in Brazil, in the Recife area, and the doors of ministry were wide open! I was ministering almost every week. Lane was able to get a lot of her issued done. And we returned to the States in February of 2023.

From February until July, the Lord was working in our lives, and revealing to us that His heart was for us to bring the message of revival and transformation to Brazil. So in July of 2023 we put our house up for sale. We prayed that the people who the Lord would choose to buy our house would be blessed, and that they would love it at first sight. Well, three days later, a couple from Virginia drove 12 hours to look at our house and the deal was clinched! They are believers and fell in love with the house at first sight. Imagine!

The end of August, we packed our suitcases, and our dog, Lara, and headed for Brazil. The Lord had provided for us to rent a beautiful apartment in a secure community.

In October, we hosted a “Typical Northeastern Brazil” breakfast for  over sixty pastors and leaders,

and we are now making plans for ministry in the Greater Recife area, a community called “CaroáSao Paulo, and Belo Horizonte.

Please feel free to return here to our site for updates and if you would

God bless you and thank you for praying for our ministry here in Brazil.
