January 2021

Timothy Blazer on January 13, 2021

Happy 2021 to all……We made it!  Like probably most of you, we find ourselves wondering, “what just happened?” as the events of 2020 seem like a whirlwind of surprises, trials, adjustments, readjustments, and survival tactics.  By God’s grace, we not only survived, but we were able to grow and learn and accomplish our main goals for the year.  Connecting personally with all of our supporting churches was an amazing gift in the midst of so many shut downs and cancellations.       Now, we are diligently preparing for our return to Brazil in 12 days (Departing Monday, January 25, 2021), and...

Greetings from the Blazers,      During our time reporting to churches in the USA, it feels like we have nothing new or interesting to share now that our two medical emergencies are in the past.  However, we cherish your continued prayers and partnership and, therefore, strive to keep in regular contact.  We have already traveled through 7 different states and visited 1/3 of our supporting churches.  We have meetings scheduled every weekend until Thanksgiving and continue to prepare and plan for our return to Brazil in January.       Our oldest, Robert, has moved to Flushing, MI, for a one-year pastoral residency position at Mayfair Bible...

Greetings from the Blazers!     Without a doubt, this has been a furlough that we will never forget!  You may remember that we quickly transitioned out of Brazil for our home assignment (furlough) with little time to prepare and much difficulty getting flights.  Shortly after arriving in the USA, Tim fell and tore the pcl in his left knee which required two months of appointments and physical therapy.  He is still slowly regaining movement and usage of that knee.     Progressing toward our goal of visiting our churches and returning to Brazil in January, despite all the covid19 craziness, we started traveling and visiting supporting...

June 2020. Home Assignment

Timothy Blazer on June 22, 2020

  Greetings from the Blazers!      As we all slowly get back to some resemblance of normal, we have finally been able to enjoy Michigan with family and friends. It has been a joyful experience to finally attend services at our home church here in Grand Rapids (Blythefield Hills Baptist Church) and attend a few family gatherings and graduation open houses as well.  Tim just finished 6 weeks of physical therapy for his torn pcl and has begun the long journey towards healing; Robert graduated from Moody Bible Institute finishing his Senior year online; and the other three finished their school...

April 2020

Timothy Blazer on April 28, 2020

  Greetings from the Blazers,     In the midst of the craziness that we are all experiencing, we personally have had our fair share of adventures.   So many times, the rhyme “ April showers bring May flowers” has resonated in my mind; and also more importantly Biblical principles from Romans 5 and James 1 regarding suffering and trials resulting in perseverance and character.  When this storm passes, we are praying that our faith, focus, and resilience will be stronger and our character deeper all for His glory as we lean on Christ.      After the insane few days of preparing...
