The March for Jesus this year in Santarém was huge and powerful. As Santarém is being won for the Lord and the number of Christians grows, so does events like the March. The March had a great turnout, and it’s amazing to see how God is using His church to win a city that even just 50 years ago had a handful of Christians. Take a look at these pictures.

Ruth, who was on bed rest for awhile, has now been taken off bed rest, much to her delight! All indications point to a healthy pregnancy and we just keep praying like crazy for continued health for her and the babies. A couple of weeks ago, I got a nasty fever – one like I’ve never had. At one point, I was in bed for 36-hours straight with high temp, nausea, soreness, headache – you name it, I couldn’t do anything but sleep! Some help I was to Ruth, who was on bed rest! ????? ???????? ??????????? 14 ??? ??????
It has taken me nearly 4 weeks to completely recover my energy. Praise God Ruth hasn’t got sick, as she continues to take it easy and rest. We’re so excited for the twins to come! We covet and are so thankful for your prayers and support. In a couple of months I’m state-bound!
