Bits January

We had a group over for New Year's.

Happy New Year! How are your New Year’s Resolutions going? I hope that you are in the Word this year! There was a good group from our church that decided they want to focus on reading through the Bible this year. 


Evelyn went off to camp for a week this month. She had a great time and even won camper of the week for her room. They have theme nights and one was profession. Here is a photo of her as a stewardess. I was able to go to the camp (our mission has a camp that has been around for over forty years) during Adventure week where we camped in tents and did lots of outdoor activities. I spoke five times to over 50 young people. It was a great opportunity.

Sarah and I are taking on some counseling and this last month we got beat up a little. Pray that we would grow in wisdom in dealing with difficult issues. We had our office redone so that for the first time in her life, Sarah has an office. We are together and then we have an area in the office for counseling as well. We inaugurated it this last week. In a couple of weeks Sarah travels to her class for a few days. 

Sarah is very involved with our kid’s ministry. I begged for involvement as well and finally get to follow in my dad’s footsteps as a doctor. I am Doctor Kid who sees spiritual sicknesses with kids and treats them. You wouldn’t believe it, but my first treatment plan was for obedience. We have a Farmacist in our church who helped me (she is legit) and we have a nurse as well, but didn’t realize it until afterwards… but we will use her in the future. 

It has been hot! This is our little

Our Tupanatinga group has remained firm and have had some extra people attending as well. We are praying and looking for what God will do and what the next steps will be. We are also praying about starting a smaller study in another town as well as we see how long the process of planting a church takes. Getting our foot in the door and testing the waters is a very first step and Roger (our coworker in Arcoverde) and I are praying and looking towards a survey trip possibly this month.

Thanks so much for your prayers! This month our needed support went up once more cause of health care increases, but so did what came in for the month. God seems to touch hearts in a rhythm that always meets our needs.  

All for HIS glory,
David, Sarah, my little camper of the week Evelyn and my other little water bug Anna Claire
