Due to the pandemic graduation was postponed a couple of times and ended up not happening as we all wanted. It was a virtual commencement and the coolest thing was getting to watch it from home in our pajamas!! I couldn’t be happier and more thankful to God and all of you who helped me along these amazing four years at Harding University! ???
I feel extremely honored! It was indeed a nice surprise to be presented with the “outstanding student award” in my major (Bible and Missions)! ?? However, I am not alone in this as I have had so many people who have helped and encouraged me along this 4-year journey. A massive thank you to my family, my wife Tatiane and daughter Joanna, our several sponsors and supporters, the awesome professors at HU, my classmates, and many others. It would be almost impossible to mention everybody by name, but you know who you are!! ❤
To God be all the glory! ??
This weekend Maikon volunteered as a chaperone and helped take the youth group to Christeens in Russellville, AR. This is the fourth year in a row that Maikon attends this event with the youth group.
Now that Joanna is 4 months old she is allowed to go to Bible class. Today was her first Sunday and she loved it. The teachers said she behaved really well!
These are the 4 families being sent into the mission field from Harding University this year! The Kings, going to Canada; Tatiane, Joanna and I going to South Florida; and the Marceaus and Steiners, planning to go to Greece! So proud of our CAMT/BMIN family for producing all four of these missionary families!! May the Lord bless us all as we partner with Him in His mission!! ???
The Spring 2020 semester started this week. Wow, can y’all believe we have finally made it to the end of our journey here in Searcy, AR? God is so good and we feel so blessed for this wonderful opportunity that we have had. This last semester, Maikon will be taking his final four classes: Biblical Theology, Theology of Missions, Wellness, and American National Government. Tati will be taking another class for her online certificate, called Capstone in Ministry. We’re excited!! ?
Yesterday, Tati’s mom (Mara) flew back to Brazil after spending almost 3 months here in the USA with us. We loved having her around and we will all (especially Joanna) miss her a lot! ✈
