The plane, the plane!!

 Posted by Picasa

As I write this we are literally on our way out the door to catch a plane to the States. We will be in America form November 16 until February for Demps' knee surgery and support maintenance. We would love to see each of you and wanted to send this quick update to touch base before our arrival.

*Staff training was a great experience. We had tons of interaction throughout the week on what it means to be an "insider" in the culture we are ministering in...not just Brazil, but college student culture and post-modern thought culture also. Jim Peterson, our speaker who worked for years with the Navigator ministry here in Brazil, challenged us to meet these students where they are rather than trying to fit them into our mold. Jim still speaks portuguese so all of our discussions were in portuguese. Thanks for your prayers during last week. The picture above is from our staff training time.

*Demps' knee surgery is bright and early Thursday morning. Please pray for a simple surgery and a quick recovery.

*Please be in prayer for our year end finances and know that we are grateful for how each of you co-labor with us here in Brazil. We're hoping to finish the year stong financially in our support accounts and be able to position ourselves for a strong next few years as our ministry expands.

See you soon!

Hello Dempseys, found your blog today while I was online and added it to our profile blog. Hope things are well and hope Demps has recovered and is back at it. Take care.
