It is always encouraging to see some fruit for your labor.  Last month I was able to lead a 31 year old man to Christ at church on a week night.  He and his wife visited church 2 or 3 weeks prior and he asked if we could meet to talk.  His name is Kaio and we are praying that he grows as he is experiencing the new battle between the old man and the new man.

Hello from sunny Brazil.  We have had a busy few months.  I performed my first baptismal service here in Brazil.  We made a big Sunday of it all, with a meal at the church.  We had three baptized and eight visitors which we praise the Lord for.

Thank you all so much to those that prayed for my surgery and recovery.  I had surgery on the 15th of December and it really went well.  I'll admit that I was not looking forward to the experience.  The Lord was really good.  The doctor ended up repairing more than was originally intended, with no extra cost.  To continue reading the update from Joel Dunbar, please click on the link below.

Praise the Lord for His goodness and faithfulness!  We are rejoicing during this time of Thanksgiving over what God has recently done.  We had a couple from Wisconsin stay with us for 4 weeks.  They came with the intent of working to be a blessing.  To continue reading the update from Joel Dunbar, please click on the link below.

I hope you are all doing well both physically and spiritually.  This has been a good month for us.  My pastor, Rick Matthews, and his wife visited us for about a week.  It was a big blessing and a wonderful time of good fellowship.  To continue reading the update from Joel Dunbar, please click the link below.

I trust you all had a good Resurrection Sunday, in remembrance of all that Christ has done for us! Because of the Covid-19 virus, we have had some restrictions that have made it difficult to meet for church.  For about three weeks it was prohibited to hold services in the church building.   We offered people to come to our home, but the church building was closed.  To continue reading the update from Joel Dunbar, please click the link below.

I hope this letter finds you well.  We are rejoicing in what God has recently done. I needed to renew my visa again, which proved interesting during a world-wide pandemic.  The mail was so slow that my documents from the U.S. were expired about the time I received them.  Because of this I expected to pay a fine for being late.  As it turned out, I was actually early, and all my paperwork was accepted the first time.  To continue reading the update from Joel Dunbar, please click the link below.

I trust this letter finds you faithfully serving our Savior, in the midst of a crazy world.  I am so glad that we serve a faithful God.  It has been interesting, knowing how to operate the ministry, as the rules for this current virus seem to change on a weekly basis.

Praise the Lord that we serve the God that is always on the throne, is always in control, and is not surprised by the events of this year. One thing that I have learned from Preacher Keck is conflicts are opportunities for service.  During this time, I have been seeking opportunities that I would not normally have.

Things down here in Brazil are going well.  The Lord has blessed with some visitors in the last month or so.  One Wednesday night we were blessed with two visitors from the neighborhood.  I had previously invited the man to come to our Special Service back in January.  To continue reading the update from Joel Dunbar, please click the link below.

On January 21st, I received a call from my lawyer that we would be going to the Federal Police to pick up or long awaited ID cards.  We received them without any problems.  We also did not have to pay any part of the fine that we were originally charged with.  Praise the Lord!

Hello from Brazil.  We are hoping you had a wonderful Christmas and will have a good start to another year. I smile as I think back to all that God has done this year.  God has kept us in Brazil, when humanly speaking it looked impossible.  He gave us the help of different people along the way who came at just the "right" time.

As many of you know, we have been working on renewing our visa for over a year and a half now.  Two months ago we were informed by the authorities that we had 60 days to resolve everything or leave the country.  Since that announcement, we have seen the Lord work mightily on our behalf.  To continue reading the update from Joel Dunbar, please click on the link below.
