A Wedding!


 Posted by Picasa

Many of you know Paige Hardy who has been on staff with us here for 6 years. We thought you might want to see her wedding picture. She married Jeremy Mueller in a ceremony here in Brazil on Friday night. Demps performed the ceremony. Jeremy and Paige will live in Anderson, SC.

Here is a picture of our family enjoying the festivities:

Support, Surgery and Staff, oh my!

We hope you are all doing well and back into the swing of school and tying up all the loose ends of summer. We are definitely back into the swing of things here in Brazil and wanted to update you on what's going on in our lives and ministry.

Visit to the States

We were in the States for a vacation and a couple of weeks of support raising in July and August. The kids certainly enjoyed seeing their grandparents (as did we!) and it was fun for them to have the chance to go to the beach.

As far as support goes, we are grateful for how God is providing. We need to shore up our support in advance of some changes taking place in our ministry here in the next couple of years. We're trusting God for new monthly support as well as one time support. We hope to see many of you in December and January when we make another support raising trip.

Surgery

It appears that Demps will have to have knee surgery again (2nd time in 10 years.) Pray for wisdom in the when, where and how of this decision and pray also for God to turn back the clock and make him 20 again...No, just kidding on that one, but oh how he wishes it could be true so that he could play, run and jump as far as he wants to. Seriously though, a large part of our ministry here is through interaction in sports, so we are trusting God for Demps to still be able to relate to these active college students.

Staff

Two of our national staff, Flavio Vital and Cristina Saporetti will be traveling to the States in September to see their current supporters and raise new support. Please pray for their time in the States as well as for the students they disciple. Pray for our ministry team as we minister to students in the physical education faculty. Many students desire to investigate the claims of Christ after the summer American teams were here. The harvest is definitely ready.

Thank you for your support and prayers. We love you all.

Demps, Kristy, Meg, Duncan and Kate
