No Camera No Service

I (Jeff) have been without a memory card for me camera for 3 weeks or so. I just recently was able to borrow a memory card but I have yet to be able to get good pictures for the things that have happened. So no pictures until I get another chance to go to the locations.

The Community Church of Lagoa de Itaenga was in trouble this month, because they found out that the place they were renting was going to be sold. They were being kicked out and in this small town there wasn't any other place to rent. But, God is good! Through one of Pastor Ricardo's relatives they were able to purchase land for cheap in a good area close to downtown. They had R$3,000 saved up already for this land and only needed R$2000 more. For a while they thought there was some money with the World Renewal Headquarters for Lagoa de Itaenga, but there wasn't any. They only had 3 weeks to raise this money or they would not be able to purchase this land.
While Pastor Zecarlos (a retired pastor that helps with this church) was on a trip to his home town of Sao Paulo, he received a gift of R$2000 for the new Church building. Well the money is going to buying the land which needs to be paid for before the Church can be build. God provided!

Don't forget that we need your help with building the new Church in Tracunhanhém.
