So Many Blessings!
The world is opening up again for ministry, and my joy knows no bounds! Above are pictures from all over Brazil. As you know, Brazil has had a particularly terrible time with Covid. Praise God! For the first time in over a year and a half, our teams are able to do puppet shows again. This is such wonderful news and such an answer to prayer. I plan to be there in June for a conference and to plant a new team in a different part of Brazil. I will be working with our Italian directors, Gerson and Fabiana Simioni, who are originally from Brazil. These pictures encourage my heart that our plans may actually be possible. Please begin to pray about this opportunity, and pray for our 18 teams in Brazil who are busy sharing Jesus with children right now.
Today I also received an incredible report from Northern Ireland. Our Irish director, Sam Shaw, told me that he did a school show on Wednesday. Yesterday he did six school shows, and tonight he has an outdoor outreach. Please rejoice and hold him in your prayers!
I have been speaking at churches and have some smaller events where I will be sharing. As for our team, we are practicing for five hours today. Since I have a new team, there is a lot to learn. We would like to ask you to pray for us. Next week, we will be doing an outreach with a local Methodist church where we will be doing four shows in one evening. We will be working with one of our board members, Ted Scoggins, and his worship band. We will be using the same format that we use when we travel with the Irish band, Reality. Please cover this event with prayer.
I have wonderful news about our matching funds campaign. We received an extra $1000 dollars that can be matched, bringing our total up to $6000 dollars. Thus far, we have received about one third of the amount that we need to match these funds. There are three more weeks left to match the available funds. Please continue to pray and give as the Lord leads. Thank you for praying, and thank you for giving!
