December 28, 2007

Dear Praying Friends,

The folks at Uniao Baptist Church in Juazeiro do Norte, celebrated Christmas on Sunday evening, December 23rd.


The children’s choir sang. It was the best children’s choir we have ever had.


Some have been learning to play piano and recorder. Now, others are wanting to join them.

Then they presented a play.

There was plenty of action in the front row, too.

 Several neighborhood children have been coming lately. The one without any clothes is a boy. The little girls are dressed. This used to be common, but now days we only see the poorest of the poor this way.

Jackeline had a class for the younger children while Darrel preached about the Greatest Christmas Gift of all.

Four boys from the neighborhood and a member’s father prayed to accept Christ.

New Year’s Eve will be a barbecue at our house. One of our friends told Darrel he is going to bring the Mayor.

Our fourth annual Children’s Camp will be January 7-12. Please pray with us that the Lord will bring the right children and that we will see many decisions for Christ. We plan to be in California during March and April. If you would like for us to visit your church please contact us. We do not have time for all of our churches this trip, so please write soon.

We praise God for His blessings during 2007. Thank you for your very important part in this ministry.

Darrel & Jean
