Jean Marc: March 2013

This is the architectural layout of the property Jean Marc was able to purchase in Rio de Janeiro. He received these designs recently from the Architect and he wanted me to share it with you so that you can rejoice with us in all that the Lord is doing and is going to do in this land, in Rio de Janeiro and in Brazil! Praise the Lord!!

You’ll be seeing the whole layout of the land, the dining hall, the Pastoral home, and even the layout of one of the chalets that will also be on the land. It’s all in Portuguese, but this will be a great time to pull out your dictionaries and learn some basic Portuguese! 🙂 They are still waiting for the layout plans for the administrative offices, the conference hall and the men and ladies dormitories. Let’s praise His Name for his Kingdom advancing in Rio de Janeiro!!

God bless you!
Diana Mojica

English translation of his portuguese letter:

The Peace of the Lord beloved Jean Shepherd!

Right from the start, I would like to thank you for receiving us so well at home. I could see God present there. On the site, a beautiful place! Missionaries from elsewhere, there for part of the summer, said it is a brilliant creation and gift of God. I’m sending you the first ideas developed for the Land of Miracles Site! and would like to know your opinion.

I’m sending you:

  • Plan of situation (as the buildings will be distributed across the land area).
  • Plan of the home
  • Plan of the cafeteria (note the relationship of the cafeteria and the bathrooms and recreation area – we tried to integrate them into one area).
  • Plan of the cabins (double bedroom, bathroom and a small countertop with sink).

I only sent plant’s dormitory, home, plan of the hall for worship, shed, classrooms and administrative warehouse in 2D. Everything will be done in 3D also, to better visualize the end result of the projects. I hope I have not forgotten anything.

I would like to thank you once again for inviting me to participate in this, which I believe is a dream for you born in the heart of God. I’ll be praying that God be with you in this journey!

A hug …

Jean Marc: December 2012

 

 

Ministering in the miracle and evangelistic crusade in Sao Joao del Rei, Brazil this past week. More than 300 souls were saved in this event, for the honor and glory of our beautiful Lord! 

Testimonies & Blessings of the Lord

My dear brothers & sisters,

I pray the Lord’s abundant grace to be poured upon your lives. We know that the Lord has great things in store for each one of his sons and daughters. We are very thankful to the Lord for He has been so good to us and He has fulfilled one of our greatest dreams; and it’s to obtain a property where we could construct our international ministry training center. There we would be receiving students from all parts of the world to equip them in cross cultural missions & evangelism. As I mentioned on my last letter, this property is 2 & 1/2 acres (10,000 square meters), and it’s located in a good area of the city of Itaborai, in Rio de Janeiro. This has been a gift from God for us to be able to acquire this property, largely through the help of you, our brothers & sisters in the U.S., Brazil and other nations. We have already been able to pay most of the cost of the property, and only $10,000 is all that we have left to pay the owner in order for us to have full ownership. We will be able to begin the closing process once we receive another $5,000 and we will be able to make 10 monthly payments to pay off the last $5,000. Please help us to pray to meet this need. We are so close to meet our goal! In January we will be receiving our first missionary candidates, a married couple from Mozambique, Africa and also a young man from Brazil. They will be coming to work and train with us in the ministry. Join us in also praying for this project.

During this past week, we were also greatly blessed as we held a large evangelistic and miracle crusade in our revival tent. The crusade took place in the city of Sao Joao del Rei, which is one of the most idolatrous cities of Brazil. The tent remained full the five days of the crusade, with the capacity of the tent reaching 2,000 people. For the Glory of God we report that over 300 souls gave their lives to Jesus and accepted him as their Lord and Savior. There were also many healings and miracles that took place. We were touched when a young woman shared the testimony that the lump on her breast completely disappeared. Glory to God! People were healed from spinal problems, leg ailments and many other things as well.

We greatly Appreciate You!

For now, we are planning out some projects for next year and also for our new property. We will continue to pray for you all and we ask that you continue to do the same for us. We understand that your prayers and efforts are what have allowed us to be able to bless many people throughout the whole world. We love you and thank you all for supporting us through your friendship, your offerings and your prayers. May the Lord continue to greatly bless you!

Sincerely,
Jean Marc & Family

Update from Minas Gerais, Brazil and urgent prayer for Dr. Margaret in Nigeria
CMM

From Diana Ortiz, CMM Hispanic Leader in Brazil with healing ministry of Jean Marc Montero Oliviera, CMM army on the front lines: Blessings to all,

We are safely in Lavras, in the state of Minas Gerais, Brazil. We had a beautiful scenic view of mountains and hills as we drove here by car, being driven by a brother in the Lord. The ride was 8 hours and it was very fast, despite the fact that he told us he was driving slow because of us having the luggage on top of his minivan. LOL! Haha. Two of our evangelist brothers from Mississippi, Shannon and David, rode in the car with us, (my kids and I) while Reggie had gone along with Jean Marc in another vehicle. Shannon had the pleasure of riding up front because he gets car sick and he also had the pleasure of seeing the cliffs in front of us and the nice curbs so he made sure to cover us in tongues most of the way! Ha ha!

I want to apologize to some if I haven’t kept up current with you, but there are so many people to write and with limited time, I cant look up all the addresses before sending them out. I have included the emails that I have sent to most at the bottom of this email in case I missed sending you one.

Concerning the kids health, Sussana is doing good now, still with some coughing, but Ray Emmanuel is still running fever here and there and has alot of congestion.Ă‚ Please cover him and the rest of us, because we are fighting a virus that’s going around that’s affecting the throat, but ITS NOT THE SWINE FLU! My throat has been hurting a bit for a few days, but I’m fighting it with Vitamin C. The kids still drink theirs everyday. God is in control of us and I trust him. I know that he didn’t bring us here to allow for us to be in danger. I am counting the cost and I know that we take risks but the ones in the Lord are the BEST ONES we can ever take. I will most likely take my son to the local hospital here, which is not a bad place, to ensure he doesn’t have a sinus infection. The ERĂ‚ here in the whole country of Brazil is free. By the way, this town is not at all like Rio de Janeiro, (the city we stayed in was like South Bronx or Harlem of NYC) but its considered country and the people here are like middle class and upper class, though there are some poor people too.

We are presently staying at a hotel where there is internet, but in a few minutes we will have to check out. I will try to keep in touch with you all to let you know how all things are doing. I HAVE ONE LAST PRAYER REQUEST, PLEASE PRAY FOR THE COUNTRY OF NIGERIA. Some of you may have heard whats going on there with over 700 killed a few days ago because of the muslims killing the Christians, but something else has happened. Dr. Margaret, CMM Director in Nigeria, the Apostle from United Body of Christ International, in Lagos Nigeria, has come under attack, or I should say her ministry. The government is taking the land around her and is attempting to take away her property where the homebase of UBCI stands. I was told that some of the property has already been affected and they had already knocked some buildings down. This is the base camp that we stayed in when we were there in February. Some of the land around them has already been overtaken, by what we were told by a sister in the Lord that Jean Marc knows in London. She was the one that called us and told us a couple of days ago while in Rio. As soon as I know more I will let you know the update, but we know that this in nothing but the enemy.

I must go for now, and thank you all for your love and prayers! Much love and blessings to you too!!

July 2009

Below are some letters from Diana Ortiz who is one of our CMM Spanish Leaders. She was in Brazil visiting CMM Missionary Jean Marc Olivera Montiero, who joined CMM. Jean Marc has traveled to Nigeria to do healing crusades. While in Nigeria his team visited the norther regions where Christian churches and people were being burned. Jean Marc and the team had to sleep with armed guards in their rooms.


We were in Rio and the Lord had me share on Mark 8:34 & 35 and also on Phil 2:1-8, and then share on how Jesus had compassion on the people, sick, multitudes before he fed them and compassion came before the miracles took place and that is what he is calling us to do as the church. After the service, the senior pastor asked Jean Marc and I to pray for him and after we did, he begin to weep. He was obviously touched by the word brought forth and the prayer. Praise God!

One thing I want to note, this is the church where Jean Marc came to know Jesus and the same pastor, who is his spiritual father. It was an HONOR FOR ME to preach there,because they are usually very traditional there and I wasnt supposed to originally preach but one of the other men that came today. Jean just got his days mixed up, but God knew. smile. Praise Him.

Continue to pray for us and the rest of the team that arrived today, Reggie, Shannon (male) and David. God is going to do powerful things this weekend in Rio de Janeiro, for His Glory.

THANKS FOR ALL WHO HAVE WRITTEN, AND FOR ALL THE PRAYERS.
LOVE AND BLESSINGS, DIANA, SUSSANA, RAY EMMANUEL


Greetings brothers and sisters,

I pray that you and the family are doing well. We have had a very enjoyable first week here! Today we will be leaving to Rio to meet up with Pastor Jean Marc and his family and that’s where the missions will be starting for the kids. Brasilia is a very rich and well developed place and we have almost all the luxuries here as we do at home. Cristiane Santana is a Brazilian missionary that is also a dentist and we have been staying at her home and it has been a retreat for us and it’s been a great blessing. I call it Resort Santana. All we need is a pool! The kids love Brasilia and have greatly enjoyed their time with Cristiane and a new family that we have become friends with here. The Sales family will actually be going to Miami to pastor a church there that will be filled with Brazilians, Hispanics and Americans. Praise God!

I have preached at three different places, and God has really touched so many people’s lives that I am really shocked. Many people here are open to missions! Many came to the front to surrender their lives to missions (About 40 of them the first night). There were also two salvations at a business meeting Bible study on Tuesday where I preached and some that night at a church in another state in Goias. Those days of ministry have been very rewarding, especially when you see so many people hungry and thirsty for MORE!

Yesterday was a very rewarding day. We went to the Brasilia Zoo and right before leaving at closing time we found two zoo keepers that tend to the lions and tigers. Cristiane knew one of them, who is the trainer to the felines. After talking a bit, he invited us to go behind the scenes and go into the actual cages where the lions and tigers are kept.Ă‚ We were so thrilled! We go so up close to these animals that when they began to growl and attack because of our presence, it became SO INTENSE, that my kids ran out! Ha ha! Crazy me shook to pieces and said, This is an experience of a lifetime, I’m not going anywhere! I took several pictures and Cristiane videotaped me less than two feet away from my favorite animal in the world, the Male Lion! Later they took us to see the jaguars and they opened up the door for us to look into the actual holding bin with two 9 month old jaguars that could’ve had us for a chew toy! Ha Ha! It was wonderful!!

We later on went to two homes where we prayed for Cristianes aunt and uncle who the Lord touched beautifully and God healed her aunt’s shoulder. She had fallen a year and a half ago and was experiencing excruciating pain. God’s love and mercy touched her shoulder and all pain was gone. I felt such heat coming out of my hands. She later said my hands felt like fire on her shoulder. Praise the Lord. We then went and ministered God’s love and peace to a group of women in another home and they cried and felt so touched and encouraged as God released words of healing and hope.

We are looking forward for two more weeks of God’s love and grace to shine upon us and for His Glory to be manifested so many more will be touched and healed ! Continue to pray for us, and we also for you!

Love and blessings! Diana, Sussana & Ray Emmanuel Ortiz

January 18, 2011

I wanted to share some of the pictures of the crusade and tent revival held in December in the state of Minas Gerais. This was the first place we got to use the new tent and we were so excited to inaugurate it and dedicate it for many years of service unto the Lord! More pictures are available on our facebook page (Jean Marc Oliveira).

As of now, we have not yet posted pictures of the Rio de Janeiro crusades, but you can get an idea of what the tent looks like and how exciting it is to finally be able to use it.

Please pray for the next tent revival in Rio de Janeiro, Ita Una.

We send our love and many thanks for your prayers!
