“Whoever refreshes others will be refreshed” Pv 11:25b

The Pruitts celebrating a Christmas meal together after many years.

After three and a half years, we could finally visit the States again.

During our visit, we had the opportunity to visit family and friends and the supporting churches that have played such a crucial role in our mission work over the years.

It was a joy to see the familiar faces of our brothers and sister in Christ and hear about how they have continued to support and pray for our mission, even during the difficult times of the pandemic.

We also had the opportunity to visit with local church leaders and share updates on our ongoing work.

They were excited to hear about God’s progress through this effort and how He continues to use our mission to impact lives and communities.

We were encouraged by their support and prayers, and we left feeling energized and inspired to continue our work.

One of the trip’s highlights was the reunion of the Recife, Brazil Mission trip after forty-two years.

Many of us hadn’t seen each other in person for several years, and it was a heartwarming experience to be able to catch up and reminisce about our time together on the mission field.

We shared stories and old photos and laughed about the many memorable moments we shared.

What was a wonderful opportunity to reconnect, reminisce, and recharge. It was a reminder of the importance of the relationships we have formed and the impact that we have had on the lives of others.

Overall, it was a blessed trip, and we are grateful for the opportunity to reconnect and strengthen our bonds in Christ.

Great conversations and delicious meals with friends!
