Moura’s Ministry – Spring 2021

April 21, 2021

With profound gratitude for your faithful partnership,
Moises & Lucy Moura
International Ministry Center Liaison



“But thanks be to God, who in Christ always leads us in triumphal procession, and through us spreads the fragrance of the knowledge of him everywhere.” (2 Corinthians 2:14)

Dear friends and family,

Gratitude is the word we would like to express to our God and all of you for your prayers and generous partnership in our lives and ministry. We pray that God will bless you and your family with health, protection, and provision for all your needs.

We are enjoying this Spring in Texas very much, especially after surviving the unprecedent frozen winter that hit our state. Bluebonnets are everywhere exuberating the fragrance of God’s love.

God has blessed us with good heath and has used us to serve Him faithfully even during this long pandemic year! Lucy and I have already been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and we can’t wait to be able to return to make mission trips in the countries we serve.

Dear respected brother Moises & B12G family,

Greetings in the mighty name of our Lord Jesus Christ. I pray you all are doing wonderful; we in Nepal are also doing well by all of your prayers and God’s amazing grace. Though the situation in Nepal is again becoming worse day by day due to Covid. The numbers of people affected by Covid are increasing day by day and soon the government is going to announce a nationwide lockdown because of COVID which means it will be again creating difficulties and pains for the marginalized and underprivileged groups whom we are serving. My trip to the Himalayas was couldn’t take place due to a lack of provisions. I am still praying for the trip to the Himalayas and copies of scriptures needed to provide our Himalayan congregation

God Answers Prayer

April 7, 2021

I am praising God for leading men to support this ministry at His own appointed time and ways. There are some individuals and government entities who help with food, clothes and money.

Even with the land purchasing I was favour before them, there were an additional 6 lots added to the first 13 lots that we engaged and they were given for a lesser price. My husband bought me a full wheel vehicle as a birthday present. I am so happy about having this car, because its capacity can carry lots of people at once, and also it can drive me through mud holes, and long distances for ministry purposes and personal affairs so easily, without breaking down.

Good-Bye 2020; Hello 2021!!

April 7, 2021


News from Bob Carvajal


Everyone was happy to see the end of 2020, even though it looks like 2021 may not be much better. The first week of January my director and his wife, Mike and Mary, picked me up in New Orleans and went to Brownsville, Texas for the funeral of Linda Torres, one of our missionaries. Linda is married to Ruben Torres and died from the coronavirus.

While on the trip to Brownsville, a friend of mine, Kris Hochart, called with an idea to bring his children to New Orleans on a mini mission trip for the three day holiday. The whole stories on the inside.

Overby Odyssey Easter 2021

April 3, 2021

Hello Prayer Team,

Er ist auferstanden! (He has risen) As we celebrate Easter this year we are reminded of the hope we have in Jesus because of His sacrifice for us on the cross. As our family steps into the uncertain, we know that our feet are firmly anchored on the rock that will not move. For us, March has flown by with its fill of prayer, applications, emails, and conversations. Here is an update on our family’s transition journey.

  • I (Scott) have officially put in my notice that I will be done at Thuringia International School as of the end of this school year.
  • Our passports arrived in record time, two weeks when we were told 4-6 weeks.
  • We have passed round 1 (of 3) of the BFA application process.
  • We are planning to stay with Be One Together on the American side of support raising
  • Someone has offered the use of their Suburban while we are in Oregon.

Easter Wishes

April 2, 2021

Dear respected brother Moises & B12G family,

Greetings in the name of our risen savior Jesus Christ. How are you and all there? We pray you all are doing wonderful by God’s grace. We in Nepal are also doing well by God’s amazing grace and all of your continued prayers.

On behalf of Servant Heart Church & Ministries Nepal, I would like to wish you and yours a blessed Good Friday and Easter 2021. Christ on the cross has also borne away our pain and may, we all experience the cross before we can experience the joy of the empty tomb. Jesus conquered death, and in Him, we can too!! Through the resurrection of God’s Son, Jesus Christ, God has given us faith and hope, that on the day of our death God is waiting for us in God’s kingdom, where we and all the faithful will be together with God in Paradise.

Happy Easter!

It’s a sunny Spring day here in Portland, and as you can see from the photo, Spring is beautiful in this city. Our last update was at Thanksgiving and so much has changed since then: seasons, presidents, the Covid and political situation, just to name a few. We hope this letter finds you well with the Lord and anticipating the celebration of His victory over sin and death!

A Time to Celebrate

April 1, 2021

Greetings to you and yours on this blessed Holy Week!

There are three holidays I absolutely love. Christmas, Thanksgiving and Easter. All three have unique and fond memories and yet the first and the last hold the most precious spot in my heart and mind.

The celebration of Jesus, Son of God, born as a baby as per the prophecies of the Old Testament and the beginning of the fulfillment of God’s redemptive plan. The third, Easter or as I like to call it, Resurrection Sunday! The day where as a follower of Jesus, I rejoice and give thanks that the Holy Spirit breathed life into the lifeless body of Jesus and the Father’s plan was fulfilled. The Godhead, working in unity fulfilled the plan and sin and death no longer have hold on me!

Spring Update

March 30, 2021

Wadsworth Window March 2021

One of my father’s expressions was “Time Marches On” Then he would often follow that with “Time waits for nobody.”  A few years ago, I was talking with a nursing home resident about time passing and he said “I don’t know how I got here so fast”

I don’t know the man in the picture above but it is so typical of those whose life has passed them by and now there is little they can do but look out the window and wish they could be outside doing something.  That is especially true for so many nursing home residents who are locked in because of the COVID pandemic.

But there is good News!  I can now enter Mitchell Care Center to visit residents. I cannot do group Bible Studies but I can visit individually. Praise the Lord!

Update from Nuno and Gila


Dear praying friends,

We hope and pray you are all doing well.

Today is a very special day for our family, as we celebrate Leonor’s 15th birthday! We had a quiet (just as she likes) and joyful celebration, with her favorite food for lunch (butter chicken!) and her favorite dessert too. Join us in praying for Leonor to keep growing in the knowledge of the Lord and that the joy of the Lord is her strength!
