Dear Friends and Prayer Warriors,
Greetings from your coworkers to the Portuguese-Speaking
Hebrew 11:6 tells us that, “Without faith it is impossible to please
God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he
exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him”. To
live by faith is our goal, that God exists we do not have any
doubts and God’s Word has proven to be true to us many, many
times. He is always rewarding us. Our hearts are full of gratitude!
Let us share with you some ministry highlights:
Every year at the end of the summer in Brazil BRoLM (Brazil
River of Life Ministries) promotes a Youth Camp with the
Christian Churches/Churches of Christ in state of Sao Paulo.
The ideal would be to promote a camp during the summer or
during the Carnaval holidays. However, since we have to rent a
location, because we still do not have our own camp facility, and
to rent it is very expensive during the summer and during the
Carnaval holidays, we end up renting a location from Friday night
to Sunday afternoon after the school has started.
Youth groups from the Campinas, Campo Limpo Paulista,
and São Mateus
church had the
opportunity to lead
one of the worship
services, and the

Jundiai Church 4th
Wow, it has been
four years since the
Jundiai Church was
planted. The first
service was at the
Santa Gula Restau-
rant. This church
plant has been a
great blessing. The
first few months
they met at the
they rented a small
store front, and last
year they moved to
what it used to be a
car shop. The
worked hard to
clean and fix up the
place, and after a
whole year's worth
of hard work the
place looks great.
However, what it is
most important is
the souls that this
church is reaching
through the power
of the Gospel of
Brother Ruben and
his team are doing
a great job; this

Pray for the Simonette Family
On our last report we asked you to pray for Brother Jose
Simonette, minister at Campo Limpo Paulista, and his family that
were assaulted. Brother Simonette’s mother had a stroke and
died in March which added more stress; however, under the
circumstances they are well. Thanks for your prayers!
“Hands On” Bible College
We are happy to announce that we have received the gifts
needed to meet the “Hands On” Bible College 2014 budget. We
serve a mighty God!
June 28, we will have our first graduating class at the “Hands
On” Bible College in Brazil. This is a great blessing!
Robert Fife (Jeff’s older brother), missionary in Portugal has
asked BRoLM to help launch the “Hands On” Bible College in
Portugal too. Thus, this year, by God's grace we will help
maintain the “Hands On” Bible Colleges in Brazil and
Mozambique, and help launch the “Hands On” Bible Colleges in
Angola, Guinea Bissau and Portugal.
Monica and I (Jeff) are happy to announce that by God’s grace
we are graduating. I will graduate from Johnson University -
Intercultural Studies (MA) – on April 25 and Monica will graduate
from Milligan College – Fine Arts (BA) – on May 10.
Please, pray for our travel plans, here are our current plans:
May 23 Leave to Brazil
August 11-18 Mozambique
August 18-25 Angola
September 15-22 Guinea Bissau
September 22-29 Portugal
We've been very blessed with some one time gifts and some
increase from those who support us, and we are very thankful.
However, we still need $750 per month to reach BROLM's 2014
budget. Thus, we still need 15 new or current
individuals/churches to start/increase their support with $50 or
more a month. Please pray and consider participating in this
challenge. Help us reach this goal! Thanks!
Available to Speak
We are available to speak and visit our supporters from April 1 to
May 20 and from October 1 to December 8. We will be at
Colonial Heights Christian Church on October 23 and at ICOM
(International Conference on Missions) in Columbus, OH,
November 13-16 (Exhibit 1105).
BRoLM Annual Board Meeting
BRoLM will have its board meeting in April; please, pray that
God will lead the board and that all the decisions made will honor
God is doing great things through BRoLM, and your prayers and
support are vital! Please, continue to pray so the Lord will use
BRoLM more and more for His honor and glory!
May the Lord richly bless you in Christ Jesus!
God is good, all the time; and He is acting among us!
In HIS Love and Service,
Thanks for praying for us!
