Latest update from Peruibe, Brazil on October 6, 2021.
In August 2021, the Muniz family (Ewerton, Natasha and Gabriella) moved to Peruibe, Brazil (south of Sao Paulo). They will work to plant a church in this community of about 60,000 people and serve not only in the local community, but throughout the country. Ewerton has been a part of Mathetai trips to the Amazon where he has led worship, taught and translated.
Below is the latest update from the Muniz family on 8-30-21 as they arrive and settle in their new hometown:
Hello family and friends,
We are happy to report that we made it to Peruibe, Brazil! We arrived about a week ago, and have mostly recovered from our jetlag! Praise the Lord!
Our family had a couple of busy months leading up to this move to Brazil. We were able to visit family in Minnesota, Washington, and New York, all within a period of four weeks. It was wonderful to see our families and to be able to say “see you later” for now. We are also grateful to have had the opportunity to see our church family and friends in Prescott prior to our departure. Thank you to those of you who reached out and offered practical help to us. We couldn’t have done it without you!
Our family had quite the adventure traveling with approximately 30 pieces of luggage! We were really concerned about Brazilian customs, however, the Lord gave us favor with the officials and they let us through with all of our stuff without much delay. Ewerton’s brother, nephew, and friend helped us once we arrived in Brazil.
We are currently staying with Ewerton’s brother and his new bride in Peruibe. Since our arrival, we have been searching for our own housing. There is a high demand for housing here which we were not anticipating. We found an apartment that we like, and have submitted an application to rent it. Hopefully we get approved this week. Please keep this in prayer as we need to find a place of our own soon. Ewerton did get sick upon our arrival but is feeling much better now. Natasha and Gabriella are feeling well, and are slowly adjusting to life here.
Ewerton has been able to meet a couple people in town, and is anticipating connecting with them soon. It has been great to be able to share about the Lord with his brother, Glauber, and his wife, Jessica. They are both very open to hearing from the Lord.
Please check out the attached video, and be on the lookout for more videos and email updates from us in the near future. We miss you all, but are excited to be here and to start the work that the Lord has called us to! Thank you for your prayers and support. We appreciate you all!
Deus te abençoe,
Ewerton, Natasha and Gabriella
