Back in Brazil

Just a brief note to let you know that we made it to Brazil!!! Things went
so much more smoothly than what we expected. We were able to hand some
tracts out on our journey, for which we are thankful. John made the trip
very well, and is absolutely delighted to be back on the field. It is hard
to say how many times we have thanked the Lord for His goodness.

John was able to speak for the first time this past Sunday evening, and it
was so great to see the way the Lord worked. After he preached, the
Brazilian Pastor (Celso) went up afterwards to give the invitation and could
hardly speak. Through his tears, he did give the invitation, and although no
salvation decisions were made, there were approximately 15 Christians who
went forward to dedicate their lives completely to the Lord. Continue to
pray that God would use us in this new ministry.

We are getting settled into our home, and things are going well. Guess
what we have in our front yard? A beautiful poinsettia plant!! Some other
good news, our boys are back in the States safe and sound...even though we
miss them TERRIBLY, we are thankful that they are "on solid ground."
Continue to pray for them and also for the girls who are adjusting quite
well to life in Brazil.

Thank you again for your prayers. We appreciate each one so much! We will
send more details in the future.

Sincerely in Christ,
John and Bev Leonard

May the Lord bless you and give you strength. We will hold you up in prayer. We were priviledged to hear you speak while you were in Creston.... My heart was blessed.
