Brad and Melissa Miller – Amazon Jungle, Brazil

-Praise the Lord, for He is good, for He is above all things!

Please Pray with my family and I over these things.  Thank you.
1. For the indigenous people and their villages where we minister, those where we have a church and are forming leaders, those whom we are visiting and evangelizing, for those where we are starting church services, for those who are yet closed to the Gospel.

2. For the people of the community Jardim Tropical in the city where we live.  Pray for Arthur and Merinete, Leandro and Roberta, and the many others.  Pray for hearts to be softened to the truth of the Word of God, for hearts and lives to be transformed by it’s power, for those same lives to be effective tools for the evangelism of others.

3. For our family, for our children in the house, Josiah, Veronica, and Benjamin, and for our two children on their own, back in the U.S., Junior and Andrea.

4. For us to be sensitive to the Spirit in the mists of struggles and tribulations not only spiritual, emotional, but also physical.

5. For the struggles and tribulations of those who are stateside and wanting to help but are ensnared in the thistles of life.  That God would liberate, separate, and sanctify their lives.

God bless you all,

Jenna Pepin – Culiacán, Mexico

After a “break” in September, ministry is coming at us full force this month. Please pray for the following events and needs:
1. Saturday, October 7, we have a new “open enrollment” for our missions ministry where we will summarize all of our activity up to now and cast the vision for new people to join us.

2. Today, we embarked on a new mission – evangelizing and helping the people who live in and around the city dump. We will be dealing with extreme poverty and young children already involved in substance abuse and crime. They are very excited to receive us and promised us a large crowd. We hope to begin next week. Pray for our safety and the success of the ministry.

3. On October 14, I will be attending a Celebrate Recovery conference in Rosarito. Please pray for our safe travels and for the conference – that many lives will be changed forever as a result of the message.

4. This month, my home church in Ohio will be making their official decision about supporting me financially. Pray that God’s will be done.

5. On October 28, I will be speaking at our monthly women’s meeting. Pray for a large audience of women that need to find healing and meaning in Christ. I will be preaching from 2 Corinthians 1 – Finding God’s purpose and plan in our suffering.

May God continue to bless you as you serve us with your prayers!
