June 2013 update
Our three week visit to Brazil was significant. We repeatedly saw some in mission-minded churches openly take a step towards serving in cross-cultural ministry. Of every 100 Brazilians, at least 20 are Bible believing Christians whereas in Europe, less than 1 in every 100 individuals would be so described. With an improving economy, the potential in large and vibrant Brazilian churches is good news for future worldwide missions involvement; the reality is that it is already happening. Latin America is no longer considered primarily a region where we send missionaries but from where we send missionaries. We are so grateful to God for the many open doors and for your support which enables us to continue serving around the world.
May God bless and encourage you all,
Gareth and Malou Bolton
