When I first started this blog almost a decade ago, there wasn't really any good way to include pictures in our update emails, and I wanted people to SEE, not just READ about what God is doing in our ministry. Since then, technologies have improved and we can now include pictures, videos, and much more right in our e-newsletters. So, the original need for our blog has passed, not to mention our ministry has become much more sensitive.
We now serve in northern Brazil flying to people groups that have strict government restrictions. To not hinder that work, I am not able to post about much of what we do on an open site like our blog, so our newsletter has been a much better space for stories and prayer requests about our ministry.
So with that said, I will continue to keep this blog open as a fun family record of our early lives in ministry, but if you want up-to-date news please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be happy to put you on our monthly email list! You can also "like" our page on facebook "Brauns in Brazil". There we post pictures of our lives, and some less sensitive news about our ministry.
Thank you for your walking with us as we serve!
