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!

Dear praying friends,

We hope and pray you are all doing well, filled with grace and peace.

As we continue in lockdown, we continue to gather online as church. The Covid numbers are decreasing, praise the Lord, and we hope that by the end of March we are able to resume our gatherings here at home. Please continue praying for all the families in our community, and especially for the ones who live by themselves (Brasilina, also Madalena, who are battling depression).

Dear praying friends,

We hope you are all doing well.

We continue in lockdown, and today school starts online. We thank the Lord for His grace that carries us through every season in life. Leonor is very happy to be at home, but Diogo misses his school friends, and some days are just challenging. Keeping the balance between time on screen, family moments, things that need to be done… it’s a full time job! Join us in praying not only for our family, but for all the families in our community, especially those with children. Pray for all the logistics involved with school at home, as well as wisdom for us parents to deal with anxiety and frustration that arise from being stuck at home for so long.

Dear praying friends,

We hope this finds you in good health.
Here we are in 2021. A new year, with some new challenges and old ones too. But our trust remains in our beloved Jesus, who said to his disciples to take heart because He had overcome the world, and though we certainly have tribulation, He is our peace.

Update from Nuno and Gila

Dear praying friends,

How are you doing?
We are well, by God’s grace. Challenges continue, but so does the Father’s faithfulness. The restrictions due to the virus have pushed us to have our meetings only through Zoom. We are grateful for technology and that almost every person in our community is able to connect. Please pray that in these difficult times people draw near to the Father.

Dear praying friends,

Hope you are all doing well.

We started our study on 1st Corinthians. There is Rita illustrating a part of Benni ́s teaching on an overview of this letter. Pray for Rita as she working from home at the moment. Pray the Lord strengthens her and guides her in the decisions she needs to take regarding her future. Pray His will be done in Rita’s life!

Dear praying friends,

How are you all doing?

Life here is going on as the Father leads. On Sundays some people like to come and gather in person at our home, others prefer connecting through Zoom. We have His peace as we keep doing what He called us to do and these are perfect times to live out the truths of His word! Our hearts ache for those who walked way, and this was something the Lord brought to our minds as we entered a season of fasting and prayer. So join us praying for these brothers and sisters, that the enemy doesn’t steal the seed planted and that the Holy Spirit draws them back to the Father: Duarte, Sãozinha, Anselmo, Assunção, Rúben, Sandra, Mafalda.

Dear praying friends,

We hope you are doing well, making the most of this season, enjoying the Lord and with eyes open to see all that He is doing around you!

We (the core group from WAVE Viana) were so blessed to have a short retreat together. It was something the Lord placed in my (Gila) heart last year and just in the right time He provided all that was needed so we could just be together and enjoy His presence. We sang, read through Scripture, cooked, painted, shared from a place of vulnerability and prayed for each other and this city!

Dear praying friends,

Hope this newsletter finds you well.
We had a very restful couple of weeks in the south of Portugal. The Lord blessed us with joy and peace as the four of us spent these days together.
School is almost starting! Please pray for Leonor as she is going to attend a new school in the city and she is the only one from her class going. Pray for good friendships and the Lord’s protection over her.

Meanwhile in Viana the meetings continued with Marcelo’s family and Benni, for whom we are so grateful! Last Sunday, for the first time since March, we gathered again altogether at our home. It was such a blessed time!
Please be praying for our community, that the Lord strengthen us and we may walk closely with Him and each other.
