Phil and Linda Byler, missionaries in Sudan

We soared for eight days above the beautiful Congo forests, grasslands, mountains and towns. We received celebrity welcomes at the six medical centers we visited. We slept in the homes of the previous generation of missionaries. We were amazed at the thriving hospitals almost twenty years after the missionaries had fled the war zone. We were blessed by the commitment of the young Congolese doctors to minister spiritually as well as physically to the patients. Everywhere, the top of the request list was for a specialist to come and upgrade the generalist medical skills. We came away with the redefined strategy to send medical specialists to “Equip, Empower, and Encourage” the young medical staff. Meanwhile Dr. Phil was able to encourage them to look to the Greatest Specialist Physician for their personal wisdom and empowerment to become better physicians. Phil returned home from these eight days with a much clearer vision and enthusiasm for our mission partnership in Congo.

Does this look like Pennsylvania farmland? It very well could be but it is southern Brazil, as beautiful and well developed as much of the United States. And the Brazilian people were as lovely as the countryside.

Phil’s visit to Brazil for eight days was to participate in the AIM International Council meetings. Among other things we interviewed a visitor, the one gesturing in the board room photo. Allan Matamoros is Executive Officer of PMI, a 100% Latin American mission sending agency. Yes, the countries to whom we used to send missionaries from the U.S. are now sending their own missionaries around the world. In fact, AIM has a sending office in Brazil who were our most gracious hosts for these meetings.

The Church of Jesus Christ is on the move around the world!
