Wayne was off the field for little over a month. This was just after the summer break for the locals here in Brazil. So how did the ministry startup go without Wayne? Not smoothly, but it is functioning. Some cracks have developed in the ministry while Wayne was back in the States. It is nice to know you are needed but the goal over time is to work my self out of a job here on the island. It is clear we still have a lot of work to do before we get to that point. We do need your prayers! Ellen is still off the field, and we are hoping she will return in October. Some of the believers I expected to step up and lead, did not. Another looks as if he might drop out. So please keep our ministry in your prayers as Wayne picks up the pieces.
