Brazil – Preparations and Support

Preparations –

Now in these months I have been in a time of preparation. I am in the process of applying for a “missionary visa” to Brazil, divesting myself of most of my earthly possessions, most of those are keepsakes and things that Marilou liked to collect, like Coca-Cola items, lighthouses, coffee mugs from my travels around the country and around the world.

Because we only lived in our house one month before Marilou died, I do not have a substantial investment in the home, so it is not worth fighting for, and renting it from 3,000 miles away is not a burden I am wanting to carry on top of language learning and acculturation.

Support Needs –

The church in Joao Pessoa has given the goal of my support at $1,500 per month. This would provide me with a modest living in line with the standard of living of most of the people who are in the church.

If the Lord has laid this ministry on your heart, would you consider being a part of our support team? There are actually two ways you can participate. One would be to give a regular financial commitment. The other, of course, is to be a part of our Prayer Support Team.

As a regular supporter of YSICM, you will also be included in special webcasts from Brazil to meet the leaders and people in Joao Pessoa and Algodao de Jandaira, hearing updates on what is happening in the churches and communities. These will promise to be exciting times of update and encouragement for you.

Furniture  – Shipping furnishings is just too expensive and beyond my means, so if you care to help with a “Furniture Fund” you can designate any gift as “Furniture Fund” and I will be able to use that to purchase furniture once I get to Brazil. Here are some examples of prices ( in dollars)

Fairly simple bed:  $590.00

Medium sized dresser: $620.00

Armoire: $225.00

Dining table: $250.00

Dining Chairs: $110.00 each

Sofa – 2 seat: $400.0

Desk Chair: $150.00

Computer Desk: $360.00

As you can see, without adding book shelves and other furnishings we are at $3,000.00
