Police in Sao Paulo

Please pray for the police in Sao Paulo. Over the past few months police men have been killed by drive by shooting and other ways. In the past couple days 6 police men have been murdered.

This has become closer to us as we know the family of one of the officers. He was the son inlaw of a pastor we know, and he leaves behind a 4 month old daughter and his wife. Please keep them in your prayers.

Every weekend there are more officers murdered please pray for Sao Paulo and all of Brazil, that the officers would be protected.  I want to see them have a chance to give there lives to God!! Many years ago I was taught two wrongs do not make a right. So brothers and sister let’s pray for a revival in the police of Brazil.

Fellowship of the Brethren.

Why not make the call and bless a someone today with a word of encouragement! (This is a picture from the internet. we do not know this person.) 🙂

As the sister of a missionary, I miss being able to give my brother and his family hugs. I miss seeing them and watching their kids grow up. Yes, with the internet, which I thank God for, we can stay in contact much easier than we could in the past; but I still miss the getting together part. Just before they left ,we spent time with them at the cabin a couple of times; and it was such a blessing. In the Bible Paul talks in Philippians about missing people. He was off working for the Lord and was missing the fellowship of his brethren.

 Philippians 4:1 AMP THEREFORE, MY brethren, whom I love and yearn to see, my delight and crown (wreath of victory), thus stand firm in the Lord, my beloved.

We get so busy in our lives that we forget there are Christians all over the world needing a word of encouragement, by phone or email. They are in battles of spiritual warfare that only God can help them through. I know I could probably take more time to pray for them and let them know we are praying for them.

Texting and non-talk forms of communication have become a big part of our lives. I think they have a place but sometimes hearing the voice of a friend or family member is an encouragement in itself. So I challenge those you reading this blog, that next time a missionary come to mind, to stop and pray for them, I know God has put them on your mind for a reason. Give them a call, as even 5 minutes on the phone is a blessing, to someone so far away from their home.

Thank you for the support and prayers that you have given Duane, Jeanne and their family .

I want to mention while on the topic that they have an Edmonton, Alberta phone number in Brazil. So local calls in Edmonton and surrounding area are free and areas outside of Edmonton area your long distance rate apply from your location to Edmonton.

Thank you for caring – they would love to hear from you!
