Due to inclement weather, the 9 a.m. service for Sunday, Jan. 20 has been cancelled. We will have one morning service at 10:45 a.m. as road conditions improve.

Update from Anthony Goddard (Brazil)

Hey friends! I hope this e-mail finds you doing well. You all ready for another update?! Good! Grab your favorite drink and snack, sit back, relax, and see some little glimpses of my life in Brazil!

Happy 4th of July!
As you may have seen in the news, we've had a lot of cases of the virus here in Brazil. Even the little town I'm living in has seen a large increase in the number of cases in the past few weeks. So far no one inside the mission property has had the virus, which has been a huge blessing! Please continue to pray that it stays that way. We have several people here who have pre-existing heath concerns and have taken extra measures to not catch the virus. Please be praying that, if it's the Lord's will, we might all stay healthy here.

Many of you who know me know I love photography. Though it's something I love to do, I haven't taken many photos in the past few years. As people have discovered my love for photography, I've begun to do more for those here at the training center and for the mission.

As I've expressed in previous letters, I'm so thankful for the many friends I've made in the past 6 months! They've taught me so much and it's been amazing to grow alongside them! Here we are enjoying the fresh air and fellowship during a work day we had.

Spending time around the campfire is always fun especially with friends!
God's been so good and I'm super thankful for all the experiences God's given me.
Ways you can be praying:

1) For wisdom for future plans. Recently I've been talking to leadership about future ministry possibilities and have been presented a couple different opportunities. Please pray for wisdom in this process.
2) For my parents in wisdom as to when to return to Paraguay. I know it's been hard for them to plan with all that's been going on with the virus.
3) For clarity of mind in my language studies
4) A closer walk with our Savior

Thank you all for your love and prayers! As always, let me know if I can be praying for you as well.
