Fellowship of the Brethren.

Joao in a red phone box in Valletta, Malta.

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!

  1. Not sure if this goes to Amanda, or Duane, or both! Yep, its just your monkeyuncle. Anyhow, my thanks to Amanda for her continued efforts and love. God will reward you for your comitment to Kingdom Building. Not only those marching in the front lines are essential, they’d die of thirst, hunger and exposure without support from back home!
    Duane and Jeanne, our prayers and thoughts are with you daily!

    • Thank you Uncle. I sometime think my life is to comfortable. I think we all should be out there advancing the kingdom. We are God hands and feet. Note: Both Duane and I get your comments.

      • Thank-you for the clarification!
        Duane and Jeanne, our constant prayers other than for the safety of your family is that God’s Spirit will prepare hearts, and then direct you where to sow the seed, on prepared ground.

      • Hi uncle Lloyd, thank you for your prayers, they are felt especially when we are out and about. May God bless you abundantly.
