And Speaking of Weddings...
This weekend it was my privilege to officiate in what is only the second wedding of our church plant (and the third one I have conducted). We have watched Wandretcharlles (his real name) and Athyla grow in their walk with the Lord (I had the privilege of leading Wandretcharlles to Christ about a year ago). Now we have the privilege to watch them, together, illustrate that Great Mystery--Christ and His Church.
Some pictures of the ceremony:
Beautiful setting, outdoors, overlooking one of the most spectacular vistas on the island.
Yours truly, with the groom.

Fourteen Years and Counting
Last week Itacyara and I celebrated 14 years of marriage. Hard to believe, as it seems like just yesterday we were walking down the aisle at the Igreja Batista Regular Maranata in Crato.
Speaking of flying, we flew (figuratively...we actually took The Donkeyslayer) away to a little weekend getaway to celebrate the occasion.
My beautiful bride, the Brazilian Bombshell, more lovely today than 14 years ago.
Love is in the air!

A little something we saw on our way home from the Music Week:
And on the Subject of VBS
Here are some pictures of the VBS at the Ebenezer congregation last week. We had about 30 kids and 7 made decisions for Christ. Pray for us as we integrate them into the life of the church and begin the discipleship process.
One of the neat things about this year's program was that it was completely organized by two young people from the congregation. They did an outstanding job planning and executing the week.
A supporting church recently asked me to record four videos for their VBS. Here they are...feel free to use them!
