Missionary Update: John & Alta Hatcher on Furlough from Brazil [May 2015]

Missionaries John and Alta Hatcher have served the Lord in Brazil since 1955, planting over 70 churches that are still in existence.

March 26, 2015

Dear Brethren and Friends:

We greet you in the Name of our gracious Lord Jesus.  We have enjoyed a great month of His blessings that He has supplied through the love of Paul and Wanda.  God has given opportunities to witness personally to persons we encountered in the stores and streets.  Please pray the seed sown will bear fruit to His glory.

The outstanding event of the month was the Memorial Service of Alice Joyce Wacaser.  She is the mother of  missionary Bobby Wacaser. The service was held in the Ahava Baptist Church, Ahava, Florida.  The service was a blessed testimony of her dedicated Christian life given by her children and friends to an audience of several hundred people.

Other than several children, she is survived by 28 grandchildren and 20 great-grandchildren.  The songs sung by her children revealed the joy, happiness and spirituality of her life and the wonderful effect on the lives of her children and their families.

The life of Alice was a spiritual blessing to her children and to all who knew her. She will be missed but she awaits all her loved ones and friends in her home in glory.  It will be a joy to meet her there!

May God give us the Grace to influence others as Alice Joyce Wacaser has.

We thank you for your love and prayers in the Name of our Lord Jesus.

Mrs. Alice Joyce “Othermama” Wacaser Meets Jesus Face-to-Face

The Lord called His servant Mrs. Alice Joyce “Othermama” Wacaser home on Saturday, March 14, 2015. She was the mother of our faithful missionary to Brazil, Bobby Wacaser. She was diagnosed with advanced stages of Leukemia during the first week of March.  At that time, she was given maybe two months to live. The Lord called her Home to Heaven just a few short days later. Bobby and Charlene were able to make immediate arrangements to fly back to Florida and be with her a few days before her death. Please continue to ask our Father to give them all His grace, peace, comfort, and strength during these times of adjustments.

“When I call to remembrance the unfeigned faith that is in thee, which dwelt first in thy grandmother Lois, and thy mother Eunice; and I am persuaded that in thee also.” -2 Timothy 1:5

We thank God for the Gospel seeds Mrs. Wacaser sowed in the lives of her children, who in turn have gone to scatter seeds on foreign soil.
