Reforesting lands and Restoring hearts

Ready, Set, ...Wait?

This last month has been busy filling out forms for TEAM, meeting with supervisors and beginning the onboarding process with Eden Reforestation Projects. I (Ben) am thrilled to be doing something I prayed for and dreamed of since college: planting trees while helping the poor and reaching communities for Christ. Yes, that's a 20 year old prayer request/dream coming to fruition! God is never late in His timing. I have been doing multiple trainings (one in Oregon and the rest on Zoom) with Eden leadership to learn their community based system for project development in order to implement this in Brazil. I will continue working remotely until we move, which we anticipate will be in July, COVID depending. Once we arrive in Brazil, I will hit the ground running and planting!

On that note, we'd like to ask you to pray specifically for Brazil as a nation. If you've seen the news recently, Brazil is the newest hotspot for COVID cases and variants. Most cities are once again under lockdown hoping to curb the growing numbers. Vaccination rollouts have been very slow and most hospitals are at max capacity. This week I found out a childhood friend of mine passed away in the hospital where her husband and son were also being treated for the virus. This is a common occurrence in Brazil where entire families are being admitted to the ICU; some survive, some don't. It has been extremely hard for so many there; please pray for God's comfort. As a family, we are excited to move to Brazil and begin ministry there but also want to be wise in our travel plans. For now we pray, prepare and...wait.

Here are our current prayer requests:
1. Pray for our preparations to move to Brazil. Major downsizing, selling our house, Becky quitting her job, etc. If it doesn't fit in a suitcase, it's not going with us.
2. Pray for our kids to transition well. We are all excited and the kids are studying Portuguese daily. Pray that they can finish their homeschool year strong and be big helpers in the downsizing and moving process.
3. Pray for our funding. Our biggest need right now is covering transition costs, or "outgoing and setup expenses".  If you would like to give toward this need, please let us know, and click on this link We would also love to have more people join our monthly team.
We are grateful for all of you who pray for us and give financially so that we can continue serving in ministry. Thank you so much!
We are looking forward to our next adventure and so thankful to have you with us!

Ben, Becky, Caleb, Samuel, David, & Lilianna.
