Rick has been involved in various construction projects, the most recent a 350-foot sidewalk on the outside of the north wall of the seminary. We had to do it to save our wall and leave a place to walk as a construction company is now getting set up to built apartments across the street on what used to be the Amazon Valley Academy; Unevangelized Fields Mission's School.
Our Volkswagen bus, used mainly for church and seminary activities, is six years old and tired. We would like to trade it in for a new one.
December 7, 2012 has been marked as the date for organizing Berea Baptist into a full-fledged church, with a constitution, deacons, and officers. Please pray as we prepare.
As of now, after waiting on the Lord, we are planning a short furlough in the summer of 2013 in Ohio, Montana, and Washington.
Your missionaries for Brazilian souls,
Rick and Gayle McLain
