Headed to Brazil!

Thank you for making this Mission endeavor possible!Hi My Friend,

Sorry for my delay in updating! Jeff and I have been busier than ever the past few months, traveling from church to church, speaking and raising support for our mission projects. In fact, my suitcase has just barely finished cooling off from our recent ministry trip to Pennsylvania and already we're packing again!

This week – on Thursday, June 9th – Jeff and I are flying to Brazil for a 20-day “Mission of Hope”. Can you believe this will be our 4th trip to this amazing country? One more year and we'll need new Visas! We're so excited that the Lord continues to give us opportunities to share His love with the people of Brazil.

We'll be spending the first 10 days of our mission in Porto Alegre (where we were last year) and will work once again with Pastor Eduardo Cardoso of Igreja Batista Passo D'Areia. Together we will share the gospel via my testimony in 6 different cities! After that, the 3 of us (Pastor Eduardo is also my translator) will fly to Vitória, the capital of the state of Espírito Santo where we'll work with Pastor Rogerio Leite of Igreja Batista da Orla for the remainder of our time in Brazil. Can’t wait to see how God will use us!

I received our final schedule this week and God has opened up so many doors that it's PACKED! We will be doing evangelistic outreaches in several churches, schools, orphanages, at a teen prison and at an indoor soccer stadium. Please join us in praying...

Please Pray For:

1. Our safety in the air and on the road

2. Good health, strength and for my voice to be strong

3. Safe handling of the wheelchair

4. Jeff and I to be increasingly effective in our evangelism

5. Pastor Eduardo, our Porto Alegre host, coordinator and Portuguese translator

6. Pastor Rogerio, our Vitória host and coordinator

7. Brazilian hearts to be opened to Jesus

Many thanks and blessings to each of you as we work together in the task of reaching our world for Christ! The next time you hear from me, we’ll be in Brazil. I’ll be doing most of my updates via my Facebook Page, but I’ll do my best to send you a few emails as time permits. THANK YOU FOR SENDING US!!

So The World May Know Him,
Bernadette Todd
