Busy Times

The time is close. Soon Tele, Jeff, and Lindsay will be in the US. Don't forget to visit them and don't forget the Brazil Reunion .

Lindsay and Jeff Turner are working hard on the Fall Newsletter and various brochures. We don't want to give too much of the Newsletter away. Here are some quick updates.

Lagoa de Itaenga is now and official Church!
This is the outreach that Ricardo Silvia has been involved with since the youth in his Church asked to start witnessing to this town in 2003. (More about this in the Newsletter)

Children's Day

(David Moraes is writing an article about Children's Day for the Newsletter)

Cafe Impresso gets new tables and chairs!
After a long time with boring chairs and tables from the Bible College, the Cafe Impresso has its own new stone tables with black stylish chairs. The Cafe also now has paid full time staff.
Now, here is the best part! The Cafe is trying to get a franchise such as Laça Burger (real steakburgers) to sell burgers at the Cafe. This would be a great boast to this business and bring in a lot more money for the Ministry. Carpina doesn't currently have any hamburger restarants.

God is good and has continued to bless this Ministry!
Watch for the Fall Brazil Broadcast!!

Tele's Surgery

What happened for you to need surgery?

I had migraines every so often and my digestion felt like it was "off." I kept getting worse over the weeks and went to the emergency room in Recife on the 28th of September. When I got there they ran some tests and performed an ultrasound. The ultrasound revealed that my gall bladder was almost as big as my bladder. They decided that they would cut me up the next day.

What did the doctors do?
The doctors performed a laparoscopy on me. They removed my gall bladder and four gallstones, one as big as two marbles put together. I was in the hospital for around 24 hours total. I stayed in Recife for another week to recover more.

Did anything unusual happen?
The doctors were surprised that I didn't have any of the typical symptoms. I didn't have a fever, intense pain, or a high white cell count. They only realized the need for the surgery after they saw my enlarged gall bladder on the ultrasound. Dr. Santos really took good care of me. A former student of his was going to operate on me, but Dr. Santos arraigned for a colleague who went to school with him to work on me instead.

The Lord really blessed! Now I feel great. I can eat anything and I have no migraines.

I want to thank our friends for their prayers and concern. I am excited to be coming in a few weeks and see many of you personally! I also want to make sure that everybody is invited to the Brazil reunion! ( see post right before this one)

Quick Update

Tele is still in Recife recovering and relaxing after his surgery. When he gets back I will have him post about his surgery.

Roberto's Car is in the shop to be fixed and he has been sick this past weekend. He went to the Doctor today and is coming back to work at the print shop this afternoon. So, hopefully things will slowly get back to normal.

Lindsay and I are doing fine, but miss having Tele and Heather around and I am ready for things to become normal again. At least for a little while.

Thank you for all your prayers during this time!!
