Our goal is to offer “Hands On” Bible Collegeeducation, not only in Brazil, but also in all the Portuguese-Speaking countries. For this reason, Jeff needs atminimum a Masters degree, so these countries governments will recognize what we are doing.The “Hands ON” Bible College in Campo LImpo Paulista is doing very well; in June Jeff taught concerning TheRestoration (Stone-Campbell) Movement and in July, Monica taught Praise and Worship for 35 students.From May 3rd to August 13th, we worked with churches in Sao Paulo, Jeff preached 53 times at thesechurches; in some cases 8 times in one week (Tuesday @ Pirituba, Wednesday @ Sao Mateus, Thursday @Jundiai, Friday @ Campo Limpo Pta, Saturday @ at youth outreaches, Sunday morning @ Jundiai, afternoon@ Bom Retiro, evening @ Pirituba). Jeff met with each minister separately and with the elders of each church.Monica led the music and had many meetings with the ladies and childrens ministry leaders of the churches.We were so happy to see how much they have grown spiritually and numerically. It is great to see theBrazilians stepping up and assuming leadership positions. God is blessing the churches in Brazil! However, thebiggest highlight of the summer was the opportunity to see 18 baptized (10 in July and 8 in August) into Christ.God is good!The church in Pirituba was going through a crisis at the end of 2011 and beginning of 2012; the church onlyhad 17 members and one elder left. The minister had gotten a loan from the bank without approval from thecongregation in 2011 and when members discovered this, they began leaving the church. The remainingmembers decided to get in touch with us in January, and report what was occurring; we knew nothing aboutthe loan. They told us that they were leaving the church too; they could not take it anymore; we told them that ifthe congregation would vote and agree, I (Jeff) would become their interim minister starting in May. They heldthe congregational meeting in February and the vote was unanimous; 5 more members came back and onMay 6th I became their interim minister. The church had many financial problems with the bank and thegovernment, was in the midst of construction, with sound equipment (speakers full of termites etc.) We workedhard and God blessed our work; the church now has 53 members and is growing. We are taking care of all theproblems and trying to resolve them as quickly as possible. The church has separated 3 elders, to be intraining for two years, and to be voted on by the congregation when the training is over. The church decidedthat they wanted me to continue as their interim minister, preaching online on Sundays and leading them froma distance. This experience it has been a great one; to see them every Sunday and see their growth is ablessing!Another highlight was the blessing of receiving some visitors in Brazil.Dr. David Eubanks arrived on Sunday July 14 and left on Saturday July 20 to Brasilia. During the time he waswith us he spoke to these churches: Bom Retiro and Pirituba on Sunday, Pirituba on Tuesday, Sao Mateus onWednesday, Jundiai on Thursday and Campo Limpo on Friday. Dr. Eubanks spoke also at the Forum Pre-World Convention and in some churches in Brasilia; he attended the World Convention in Goiania and spoke insome churches there too. Attached is a letter that Dr. Eubanks wrote about the work in Brazil.We received also the “Experience Brazil 2012 Team,” the team arrived on Saturday July 20 and left on MondayJuly 30. The team was formed of Brothers and Sisters from different locations in the USA, Richard and PeggyZiblar from Tulsa, OK; Luz and Gloria Bacerra from Miami, FL; Bob and Sabine Schnelle and LeAnn-3-

LeAnn Blackmore spoke at all three services. On Monday we did some tourism and onTuesday, we and the team flew to Brasilia for the Forum Pre-World Convention.

On Monday aftera great lunch at a Brazilian Churracaria (steak house) we traveled to Brasilia so the team could return to theUSA.Since 2008 I have been the liaison person between the World Convention international board and the localboard in Brazil. I have devoted many hours to translating and helping organize the 2012 World Convention inBrazil. To see the convention occur in Brazil was a blessing, I had opportunity to translate for some of themeetings and to coordinate the translations for the main sessions. According to the office in Brazil, there wereclose to 4 thousand at the Convention, over 300 from all over the world. We thank the Lord for the opportunityto serve; I am still translating some correspondence after the World Convention.Monica has served since 2008 as the president for the Global Women Connecting that met during the WorldConvention in Goiania. She was very blessed with a great team that help her organize the WomensConvention that was held in the afternoons during the World Convention, over 400 women attended. Monicaalso was one of the speakers and LeAnn Blackmore from the “Experience Brazil 2012 Team” was also one ofthe speakers. Monica has been asked to continue to serve as president until the Koreans appoint a newpresident, since the 2016 World Convention and Global Women Connecting Convention will be in Korea.The ministry in Mozambique is celebrated 16 years in September 29, 2012, and we are blessed to participatein this ministry. They have planted 63 churches, the grade school has 1052 students this year, 32 girls areliving at the Hope Home and we hope that we will have the opportunity to start a “Hands On” Bible Collegethere next June 2013.We could share many other highlights and give many testimonies of how God has blessed Brazil River of LifeMinistries in the last year. He is doing mighty things!PERSONAL HIGHLIGHTS OF THE PAST YEAR:Monicas health continues to improve; she still has to deal with horrible headaches and some limitations,however most people do not notice that she has these limitations. We are thankful for her life.Our older son Roger is a sophomore at Milligan College, and he is doing very well; he also plays soccer for theTri Cities Soccer League.Our younger son Isaac is a sophomore at Elizabethton High School; he is very active in sports and also playssoccer for the FC Dallas at Tri Cities.Both of our sons continue to be strong in the Lord, and this is a huge highlight for us!Monica and I survived the second year of school, and Monica is an honor roll student at Milligan.Overall, the biggest highlight in our personal lives is to be found by God to be worthy, and it is He that makesus worthy, to work for Him in His Kingdom! In spite of us, He is merciful and He uses us for his honor andglory!HOW SUCCESSFUL HAS YOUR MINISTRY BEEN OVER THE PAST YEAR? WHAT MARKERS ARE YOUUSING TO MEASURE YOUR EFFECTIVENESS?God has been very gracious to us! We see many ways in which we might be more effective in the ministry, andare striving toward this growth as we learn more each day with our Lord. However, at the same time, we seethe hand of the Lord working through us as we see people coming to the Lord, and others being restored in-4-

Although for us, our first ministry is our family, and we have been blessed with very good childrenwho are committed to the Lord. We could say that the Lord has done a marvelous work through our lives.Everything we plan in ministry is based on prayer and fasting. Therefore, the markers we use to measure oureffectiveness is to see Gods approval. He has given us peace, courage, strength, and a spirit that does notgive up in doing His work. We are seeing lives being saved and restored. We feel we have been doing whatthe Lord has called us to do, and this work is yielding fruit beyond our expectations.WHAT ARE YOUR CURRENT FURLOUGH PLANS INCLUDING PLANNED VISITS TO CHURCHES?During the school year, we are available to visit the churches at any time. We are available to come and reporton the ministry to the Missions Committee, for mission moments during the services, Communion meditations,share in Sunday School classes, teach, preach etc. In any area in which the churches may need or want us toserve, we are available.WHAT IS YOUR CURRENT FINANCIAL SITUATION? PLEASE ATTACH YOUR CURRENT BUDGETALONG WITH ANNUAL EXPENSES AS WELL AS THE AMOUNTS BEING RECEIVED FROM OTHERSOURCES. PLEASE INCLUDE INFORMATION ON YOUR RETIREMENT PLANNING.When you think of Brazil River of Life Ministries, you cannot just think Jeff, Monica and the boys. This is aministry to reach the Portuguese-Speaking world. Over 270 million people speak Portuguese in the world. Wework directly and in partnership with various ministries in the Portuguese-Speaking World. In Brazil we arecommitted to promote 1 evangelistic event per month, prepare and print discipleship material on both weeklyand monthly bases, and plant new churches; each church we plant receives financial help from BRoLM for 3years. In addition, we are committed to training new workers for the harvest through the “Hands On” BibleCollege so we can continue to have strong leadership at the local churches and plant new churches using ourBible College students. In Brazil alone, we have planted 11 churches and helped restore 8 churches in 6different states. The ministry in Brazil is a team ministry, with a coordinator in each state.Brazil River of Life Ministries works in partnership with missionaries in Angola, Guinea Bissau, Mozambique,Portugal and the USA. In the near future, we plan to start a “Hands On” Bible College in each of theselocations. However, we are already very involved with the work in Mozambique, not only in sendingdiscipleship material but in also raising financial support for the work there.Attached is the BRoLM 2013 detailed budget! You will note that on our 2013 budget we need an extra$1,079.17 per month to reach our monthly budget.We will send the 2012 Financial Audit Report in the first quarter of 2013, as we did sent the 2011 FinancialReport in the first quarter of 2012.HAVE YOU EXPERIENCED ANY HEALTH CONCERNS ABOUT WHICH NEEDS TO BE MADE AWARE?We ask you to continue to pray for Monicas total health recovery. As we already mentioned, she has terribleheadaches every month; she also has other limitations. For example, when she gets tired she loses control ofsome parts of her body; her legs will not stop shaking until she gets some rest.Since Monica had the brain tumor in 2008, pre-condition, for this reason we have not been able to get herhealth insurance here in the USA. Doctors from Johnson City First Christian Church have taken care of Monicawithout any cost. What a blessing! In the end of 2011 we discover that Monica had a fistula and she needed afistulectomy, the surgeon wanted to schedule the fistulectomy for the spring, however we did not have thefinancial resources for the surgery so we put it off for a few months. Lately, Monica was feeling worse, anddiscovered a second fistula, so we went back to the surgeon on Monday September 24. He wants to operateas soon as possible because he is worried, since things have gotten a lot worse in the last few months; he isafraid Monica may have Crohns disease. Therefore he wants to do the two fistulectomies and a colonoscopy-5-

The Surgical Center cost is $1,567.00, the anesthetist cost is $855.00 and thesurgeon cost is $500.00 a total of $2,922.00. We do not have the financial resources for the surgery, and weare praying for God to provide!On Wednesday Sept 26, Monica started to have pain all over her body with many chills, she been sick in bedsince, on Sunday one of the doctors came to our house. He thought she had the influenza (H1N1), however onMonday at his office the test for influenza was negative, urine infection negative, the doctor could notdetermine way she is having the terrible pain all over her body. Monica is taking pain medicine and antibiotic,however she still has the terrible pain all over her body. Even though the doctors do not know what is causingthe pain, they still believe that Monica should go through surgery as schedule this Friday Oct 5th. Please, prayfor her!WHAT ARE YOUR GOALS AND VISION FOR THE NEXT YEAR?Give continuation to what we are doing right now:o Coordinate the work from a distance, not only in Brazil but also in all of the Portuguese-Speaking Countries, continuing to work in partnership with all of our co-workers in those countries.o Help them promote evangelism and discipleship and help newly-planted churches to grow.o Preach live online every Sunday at the Pirtuba Church.o Meet online weekly with the elders at Pirituba Church.o Maintain a daily connection with the members from the Pirituba Church.o Visit the work in Mozambique in June 2013 to visit the churches and start a “Hands On” Bible College there and for Monica to teach Jesus through the arts to Muslim students at the grade school (98% of the students are Muslims).o Visit Angola and Guinea Bissau in August 2013. Jeff has been invited to speak at their National Convention and we would like to examine the possibility of starting a “Hands ON” Bible College in each of these countries.o Work in Brazil during the summer of 2013.o When we bought our home in Brazil, we could only afford to purchase a home outside the city limits on a dirt road, however the lot was bigger than the city ones. The lot has .25 acre and 1,385 square feet of construction. However the house is strategically located, 15 minutes from Campo Limpo Pta, 25 minutes from Jundiai, 45 from Pirituba, 1 hour from Campinas and 1 hour and 45 minutes from Sao Mateus. This summer, we talked with our church leaders and asked them what the biggest need for our churches was; they all said the churches needed a retreat - a place where they could take couples, the leadership, the youth etc., for a weekend retreat. The lot beside our house is for sale; it is .25 acre and there is no fence between our house lot and the lot for sale. Therefore, Monica and I would like to purchase the lot in the name of Brazil River of Life Ministries and build a retreat there, joining the two lots. We would have a .50 acre for people to walk and enjoy their stay. We would like to use the retreat to accommodate teams that will come from the USA to visit/work with us in Brazil. The owner of the lot is asking $40 thousand for the lot, and to build a building with two bedrooms for 30 people each, a meeting and dining hall, a kitchen and the bathrooms, we will need $60 thousand; therefore we will need to raise $100 thousand for the whole project. The great thing is that the lot owner will accept payments for the lot, so we can give him a down payment of $16 thousand and make 24 monthly payments of $1 thousand each. We would like to build with handicap accessibility, and use the retreat during the week as an elderly daycare. This is a big need in Campo Limpo Paulista!o Receive teams from the churches that supports BRoLM and other groups that would like to come to visit/work with us in Sao Paulo.-6-
