Dr. Thomas and Mrs. Linda Gilmer – Church Planter, Bible Translation in São Paulo, Brazil
Dear Friends of Zion:
We thank all who prayed and gave to keep our ministries going forward. When teaching missions, I tell the potential missionary, and advise new missionaries, that a one-paragraph or one-line prayer letter each month is better than a long, detailed letter later on. This month, we must practice what I teach!
Thank the Lord for intense missionary activities in October and during the first days of November.
Please see our Praise and Prayer section below to have an idea of what has been and will be happening!
May God richly bless you all.
Yours for the Messiah,
Tom and Linda Gilmer
