A RIVER BOAT FOR BUJARU.

It is exciting to see how God is moving on the Bujaru River! We thank the Lord for His faithfulness as the work continues to move forward and we are grateful that you are a part of what God is doing here in Brazil!

Two days ago, we visited the River Boat Shop in Bujaru where we are going to have a boat built to travel on the Guama River for outreach and evangelism. Even though we are still raising funds for a larger, more efficient Medical Boat, we believe that a smaller wooden boat will serve well in the meantime to reach out to the nearby river communities.

Small Boat Budget:

Materials and Labor: $3,000   
Equipment and Registration: $2,000     
Boat Motor: $5,000
Total Cost: $10,000

Total funds raised to date: $3,000
Total funds needed: $7,000

After visiting the Boat Shop, we spent the afternoon working on the road that leads to the church. Even though the road still has a lot of work ahead before it is ready to use, we were thrilled to have over 70 people attend our Saturday night service this past week. We thank God for the many lives that are being reached!

Thank you so much for your prayers and support of what God is doing in Bujaru! Please continue to pray with us for funds for the River Boat and that God would open doors for further river ministry. 

With love,

A ROAD THROUGH THE JUNGLE.

Hello Friends!

On Tuesday of last week, Michelle, Rachel, and Marçal drove out to our River Church in Bujaru to talk to the City Council about clearing a jungle road 180 meters long and 5 meters wide leading from one of Bujaru’s city streets to our Hope Ministries Church building located along the bank of the Guamá River. After approval from the City Council, we worked alongside friends from the city to start clearing a small jungle road.
