It is already very hot. The farmers have been battling the rain with their crops. But Lord willing they will get everything done they need to.
We have been very busy here. We have had some great ministry opportunities. We were asked to do a Marriage class every Sunday in Mccory. Which is were we now mainly attend Church. And every Tuesday we have a Bible Study here at the Church in Hunter. On Thursdays we help out at the auction that Pastor Don holds every week. It’s such a blessing and so encouraging to watch God open up the doors. And we also help a few of the Widows in town. With mowing their lawn and yard work but most importantly Fellowship.
The kids just finished up their school for the year. I’m so proud of them they worked really hard. I’m sure we will do some basics throughout the summer to to keep things fresh.
We started a garden and have done a lot of work in the yard. It’s such an amazing transformation from when we first got here.
Jesse has been doing a lot of building and handyman stuff which has been a blessing. Not just for funds but most importantly outreach and open doors he wouldn’t of had otherwise.
We have been making some good connections and it’s been some great training. The Pastor in Mccrory. The one we have been attending since last year. Is going to be doing some tent outreach ministries. Which we are looking forward to helping with and gaining experience with that.
We try and remind each other every thing in GODs timing. Every day and each new thing is a learning experience getting us ready for the next step.
If God lays us on your heart this month please pray for open doors to minister, for Gods provision and for health and healing in our bodies. We have both had a lot of back pain and Becki has had shoulder pain and headaches as well.
Thank you for all your prayers and support.
Blessings in Christ,
Jesse and Becki Brattrud and family

About Jesse & Becki Brattrud
It is our vision and focus to plant churches and to establish a base that can accommodate other missionaries and/ or those who are being raised up for ministry
Our plan is to attend language school and while attending language school we will explore rural Brazil, west and southwest Brazil specifically, the farming communities and small towns. Our next step would be to find the area with the most need, those little red or orange dots on the map that signify less than 2% Christian. Once we find that location then we will begin to search for a central location around the greatest need to establish a base. Once we graduate language school we want to quickly and smoothly transition to the new location, walk around the villages praying and helping anyone out that we see needs and will accept it. Then invite them and their families to our place for supper serve them Jesus. Plant a church, begin street preaching in the town, raise up leaders that are capable of reproducing Christ in others and spreading the gospel. Turn the church over to the people and establish a pastor. Oversee the local pastor and repeat. The goal will be to plant as many growing, self sustaining Christ-centered churches as by Gods grace and power that we are able. To bring blessings to the communities by Acts 3:26 “When God raised up his servant, he sent him first to you to bless you by turning each of you from your wicked ways.”
