Three cities, three weeks of training

Phil Graf, Doug Dorman, Mike Hawkins, and I will have arrived in Brazil by the time you read this. We begin the first of three trainings in a city called Balneario Camboriu in the Brazilian state of Santa Catarina. Here is a copy of the poster in Portuguese announcing the “Conferencia:”

Sammy and Marcia were “Participants” in our last Phase 1 training and will now be “Contributors” in Baln. Camboriu. They are the catalysts to our training in Brazil and have amazing hearts to reach their country for Christ.

Following our Phase 1 training in Baln. Camboriu, we will travel to Bom Retiro do Sul in the southernmost state of Rio Grande do Sul, Sammy and Marcia’s home city. There we will conduct Phase 2 of our On-Expedition training: “Empowering Leaders for Multiplication.”

Thanks for being “on expedition” for Jesus and His kingdom with us. Pray that our training will contribute to His kingdom coming on earth as it is in heaven.

Linus (and Sharon)
