We arrived at Detroit airport on October 8th. We were hosted by Charles & Elisa Schulz, in Ypsilanti, MI, and their children: Lucas, Daniela and June Marie.
Charles is Professor at Concordia, Ann Arbor,

– where we did a presentation at Chapel hour and another one at night (Oct 9th).

We visited also Hosana-Tabor Church and school, Redford, MI –Pastor Paul Undlin, on October 10th,

where we led the chapel for the children.

We drove to Caledonia, MI, on Saturday (Oct 11th). St. Paul Lutheran Women Missionary League – LWML, has been sponsoring our family during the past 30 years, from the very beginning of our missionary life in São Paulo, SP, Brazil, sending gifts for our children for Christmas or for Easter. It was so nice to meet them!

On Sunday we did a presentation at the Service and at the Bible Class. Sunday School Children gave a “check” to the mission!

Pastor Gerke is the pastor at St.Paul,
– On Sunday afternoon we were taken to Macomb, MI, where we had chapel with Immanuel School on Monday morning.

We met two Brazil Mission supporters: Nancy Kruger, from Immanuel Lutheran Church, Macomb, MI,

and Robin Barton, from Faith Lutheran Church. Troy, MI.
– Nancy organized an evening event at Immanuel for a group of friends, where we did a PPS. Many of them had been at our house in Brazil on Mission Trips, and they were happy to hear about God’s blessings upon our ministry in Kenya.
We were hosted by Norbert and Carolyn Koschmann, old friends and founders with Pastor William and Patricia Thompson of the Brazil Mission Society (BMS). – Mark Schroeder is part of the BMS Team and had organized several Medical Team Mission Trips to work among the native Indians in Brazil.
The Koschmanns organized a breakfast on October 14th at Trinity, Utica, MI, where we had a presentation.
