Hello from the Blazers!     Many exciting things continue to unfold daily here in Brazil, and we are eager to share some with you.     Tim has traveled many, many miles and taught in three different settings over the past few weeks while still able to make it home for some weekends.  Meanwhile, Andrea and the kids have stayed home and continued to work in the church plant and orphanage.   These trips have been full of adventure as Tim has encountered challenges while traveling, and Andrea and kids faced adventures at home including a butane gas leak from our stove,...

Greetings from the Blazers!      While hearing of all the crazy weather in the USA this winter, we praise God for our 87-degree days.   Our weather in Fortaleza is consistently hot and mostly sunny which facilitates all the work we need to do in reaching this community for Christ.       Thank you so much for praying for our inauguration service the first week of February!   The weeks leading up to that Sunday were intense and exciting.   We worked almost daily on the building and had three work days with several families helping.   The Saturday before, a team of 10 canvassed...

Greetings from the Blazers!      In our part of the world, things have been very interesting lately.  Brazil just elected their next president, and the election was probably one of the most polemical and polarizing choice in recent history.  Even churches cancelled their services on the Sunday of the final vote in anticipation of violent protests.   Our local drug cartels posted signs threatening to kill anyone who voted for a given candidate.  Now that all that is behind us, we continue to move forward with great anticipation for all that God is doing on the ministry side of things here. ...

Hello from the Blazers!    As our family completed our 18th year of ministry in Brazil, the summer months were packed full of ministry.  We had over 130 people at different times into our home for meals or meetings or teaching opportunities; and most definitely the highlight was at a conference where Tim spoke, 4 teenagers came to a saving faith in Jesus Christ.   (more below)   Church Plant.   During our vbs in July, over 40 children came to hear the Gospel.  It was definitely a learning experience for many of our team since several had never volunteered in a...
