iN tHe mIdSt oF tHe StOrM, pEaCe pReVaiLs & HOPE eNdUrEs...


I've been feeling so hopeful and so at peace about all the situation with the land... it's even surprising me...it can only be God :-) ... I 've been feeling really encouraged as well with all the e.mails I've been receiving from people, even from those who often don't write... I really believe God's name will be glorified in all this...
we had some guests, on the right timing as well... Miri's mom came to visit her daughter and she has been such an encouragement in all this situation... she also have the same dream, to have a place where people can come and find rest...she came also to rest, but she loves to work in the land, so she's not really still...there´re many ways to rest anyway :-)... I couldn't help but feeling encouraged while I was watching her planting flowers everywhere and helping me to plant other vegetables that Steffi from Germany also sent through her...
I´ve been learning a lot with her, she has cool tips all the time... so cool to have experienced people around :-)

Simon from Jesus Freaks-Zwickau was here for a week to rest as well and I just came to bring him to the bus station to go to Porto...
Now I'm here with Michu at a cafe where I found wireless internet... Yes, with Michu :-) she followed us in the night and we only noticed in the middle of the way...
Michu is like a dog, she wants to follow me everywhere :-)... But, she's behaving now :-)

I still feel very encouraged to keep working on the land... no matter what happens... I feel a lot of Joy as well, which it shouldn't be normal in this situation as well... But I'm just in expectancy to see how God will glorify His name in the end...




I still don't have any clear sign or word from God about buying or not this land, but I just got a call from a girl I met on my trip last year who would like to donate a good amount of money if we decide to buy the land and I also got an e.mail of another possibility to get money for the land...
I don't know... I will not make any decision before knowing exactly what God wants, but it's surelly encouraging that God is already moving others to believe in this vision...

I'M STILL PLANTING SEEDS IN THIS LAND, AND I WILL GO FOR THE TREE PLANTING IN THE BEGINNING OF MARCH :-)


Look at the green peas sprouting ... so beautifull, and so encouraging !!!

Frauke and Dominike also came for a day to say good-bye and to register Dhana Noeh in Castelo Branco... Frauke was saying that it would be a bit silly to buy this land for God when it's already His...it's true, but well, He's crazy enough to do that !!!
For me it would be a greater miracle to see people's hearts changed, but that's not up to God as well, because He always chooses to respect the free will He gave to us...
It was also a great encouragement just to be with them and speak with them... It was nice to remember all we went through in the last 4 or 5 months... They will start heading to Germany now... check their web site if you want to keep updated with the "Mobile Freak Church" and what God is doing through this crazy Jesus Lovers :-) ... there's a link in "My relationships" at the right side :-)

As for me, I'll keep waiting, trusting and praying...
I'm still at peace...shantii, shantii :-)
That's all I can do ...
And I´m really thankfull for all those who make me feel I`m not alone in all this...
