Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!
We hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!! We thank you all for your prayers, support, love, and encouragement to our family...you all are instrumental in our work here in Belem, Brazil. The holidays are always a difficult time for us as missionaries far from home. This will be our 4th holiday season away from 'home', family, and friends, and while some may think that the longer one is gone the easier it becomes, the truth is it's still difficult.
Boasting in Weakness
It has been a little over a month since we have returned back to the mission field of Belem, Brazil after our summer 'home-assignment' in the US. I am hesitant to call it a furlough because I believe furlough would include a time of rest and recuperation; however, this was not a time for that. We had a very clear purpose and objective(s) for this time
God is Moving Mightily
It is exciting to see Calvary Belém continuing to grow and be a light in the community. Our church services in the park continue to reach the lost and the prodigals, and our services in the church building continue to grow. As great as this is, the most exciting part of this is seeing how the Lord is drawing us together as a strong body of believers and a strong family in Jesus.
Praise the Lord!
"Let everyone who has breath praise the Lord! Praise the Lord!" Psalm 150:6 What a wonderful reminder this is for everyone; for those whom still have breath/life in them... praise the Lord! It is so common to meet individuals whom believe they are too far gone to be reconciled with the Lord. These people believe that their sin is too great, their thoughts too grievous, dark, depressed or haunting for them to be allowed into a relationship with Jesus.
Continuing on in the Strength of the Lord
It has been a very difficult and trying season for us lately here in Belem, Brazil, both personally and in our church and its ministries. Beginning a new church as well as new ministries in a foreign country, in a different culture, and in a new language from nothing is not for the weary. We continue to be impacted by traumatic/grievous situations in our work with the individuals in prostitution and with the refugees.
A Joyful Servant's Heart
Each year I am on the mission field I learn more and more about my heart. I continue to realize how indeed 'wicked above all things' it is and I have been continually tested about what it means to truly have a servant's heart. A heart that desires to care for others, that is brought low to raise others higher, to be used in order to show others the love and selflessness of Jesus who lives in me.
Merry Christmas from the Amazon-Fox Family Missions
Hello and Merry Christmas! We are looking forward to celebrating the birth of our Savior with our church family and friends here in Belem. In fact, we are having our first church service in our newly acquired building for Christmas service this Sunday! It has been an extremely busy few months for us here in Belem. Last October we were asked to share our ministries, and our new church plant, at the Calvary Chapel Merritt Island missions conference in Florida.
Moving Forward...
We have two items we want to share with you. The first is about our church building and the second is about a healing home for the Proverbs 24:11 ministry (a ministry for those involved in prostitution and human trafficking). We just signed a lease, beginning December 1, for a Church home for Calvary Chapel Belem!
A Sowing Season...
Hello! This month we decided to do a video update...I hope you have a few minutes to check it out (some bloopers included). We continue to push forward in this season of sowing seeds. We continue to share the Gospel message and pray for fertile and soft hearts for the message of Jesus to be received, but I have to be honest, being a sower is not what I expected...it is hard
