Hello from the Blazers,     We have had quite the eventful month.  Family Update:  On Tuesday, our son Robert at Moody Bible Institute, had emergency surgery (appendectomy).   He had been sick for quite some time and just kept getting worse.  After a visit to a med center, he was immediately sent to the local ER where after hours of testing, ultrasound, and ct scans, it was confirmed that they needed to immediately remove his appendix.  It was a difficult day for all of us.  He was all alone until late that night just before surgery when family could get to Chicago...

Hello from the Blazers!     As we wrap up our summertime activities and ministries, we eagerly pray and prepare for the new semester of opportunities to equip believers and reach the lost!     With several training trips for Tim, a church planting class to teach at the seminary, the Brazilian missions agency needing help with missionaries, and our own church plant here in our city, we continue to have much to do.       As our church plant is growing and a core group is coming together, we have scheduled monthly outreach activities.  In July, the youth group hosted a special...

Greetings from the Blazers in Brazil!     Last Saturday was a great day as we hosted our first ladies’ tea as an outreach event for family and friends.  (see pictures in Ministry album).    Nearly 50 ladies filled all tables and chairs and stayed for the 2 ½ hours of food, fellowship, games, Bible study, craft, and prayer time.  We clearly presented the Gospel and provided opportunities for follow up as well.  Despite the stifling heat, so many ladies thanked us and complimented us on a job well done; and to that we kept saying, “to God be the glory”.   Working...

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...
