Running Around for the Lord

Jerry Neuman on November 15, 2019

Running around the beautiful northwest 

Since our last update we have experienced the blessings of the Lord running around the Northwest.  We made one long trip from Everson, Wa through Grand Forks, BC, Canada down into Washington visiting friends in Summit Valley, Chewelah, Spokane Valley, Eltopia, and Richland, and in Hermiston, OR. Our destination was Nampa, ID to visit Kirk & Juanita McKeeth and their ministry, Iglésia El Tesoro. After a great time of fellowship we headed back through Richland and finally to Fox Island, WA.

We are very grateful for the generosity of Graham & Sharon Marshall of the Discovery Baptist Church who have allowed us to stay for 5 weeks at their Beach Lab overlooking the Puget Sound. The stability of being in one place has been another great blessing to us.  That is not to mention God's gorgeous fall paintings that we have been favored with! You may have seen some of the photos of we've posted on Facebook, caught at this former Naval Lab.  

During this time we have begun major revisions and updates to our website and photo albums.  We hope you will take time to visit and let us know what you think of the changes.  There will be more to come as time allows.

From Fox Island, we have made Sunday excursions to report to Tabernacle Baptist, Shoreline; Meyers Road Baptist, Bonney Lake; Eatonville Baptist. For the first time in two new churches, we will present our ministry to Mt. Tahoma Baptist and Southside Baptist, both in Tacoma. We are also presenting our ministries in 5 small groups of Discovery Baptist Church on Sunday evenings and during the week.

The joys of renewing old friendships and making new ones has blessed us immensely. At every stop we have seen how the Lord had orchestrated us to be there that day:  like when Pr. Jason Swofford had so many health setbacks the week before he couldn’t make it to the services! The privilege of ministering the Word to the special people of the El Tesoro Hispanic ministry in Caldwell, Idaho will be remembered for years to come!

Monday, Nov. 18 will find us hitting the road again to the eastern side of Washington for a week, then back down to southern Oregon and Northern California for family times over Thanksgiving week and regrouping before heading south for the rest of our time in the US.

Phoenix here we come!

As far as we can tell, Jerry’s anomalous heart structure condition is not life-threatening at this time, but our cardiologist in Brazil encouraged us to get a second opinion in the US. After much research on this and similar conditions, we came to the conclusion that we needed to see a specialist in adult congenital heart disorders. So, we've  made an appointment to see a doctor at the Mayo Clinic in Phoenix, AZ. on December 31st. We will be involved in translating and sending exam results in the next days. The costs will not be covered by our normal ABWE health insurance plan as it covers us only outside the US so we will need your prayers for God's provision (and participation) to make this happen.

Back to Brazil the end of January???

We are so thankful for our ministry partners - both those who faithfully support us in prayer and those who faithfully share financially. Without you on our team, we could not continue to live and minister in Brazil.  Our goal is to return by the end of January, but we still lack $450 a month in support pledges. Several individuals have shown interest in committing to this and at least one supporting church is considering an increase.  We need financial clearance from ABWE two months before our proposed departure date -- so that would be the end of November.

Please pray with us for God to move His people to make our return possible and that God’s people will sense His blessing as they participate in this, His ministry.

Extending your ministry to Brazil and Beyond,

Jerry and Lynda Neuman
