Christine and I were commended from Northern Ireland, to serve the Lord in the southern state of the land of Brazil, called the Rio Grande do Sul. We arrived here in 1987 bringing with us our one year old daughter Judith. Leah our second daughter was born seven weeks after our arrival. Later God gave us a third daughter, Rebecca, in 1991, and lastly in 2003 our son Thomas John was born. Our three daughters are now married and with their husbands, are in assembly fellowship in N. Ireland. Thomas John was saved in 2016 and in 2018, through problems with his education in Brazil, went to N. Ireland to study. The same year, he was baptised and received to fellowship in Lisburn. His mother has remained in Ireland with him while his Dad comes back and forth from Brazil. We live and labour mostly in the interior of our state, living in the city of Santa Maria. The assembly there was established in 1996 and we thank God for its growth slowly over the years. We seek to labour bringing the Gospel to the Brazilian People. Like Paul we feel we are “a debtor….. ready to preach the Gospel… for it is the power of God unto salvation” Rom 1:14-16. BRETHREN PRAY FOR US 1 Thess 5:25.
