In this book "Dick" Ummel takes you from Sao Paulo, Brazil, westward on roads of mud and jungle trails-up and down mountains-into the state of Parana which borders Paraguay. Here the Jungle is hacked away and Coffee farms await harvest: New workers arrive daily. These continuously migrating families find hope, restoration, and healing in the Lord of the Harvest as Dick leads Bible studies, worship, youth groups, and teaches Theological Education by Extension (T.E.E.) classes for pastors and lay leaders. As these Pioneers moved on northward into areas of the Amazon Basin, Dick travels north-even to Belem on the Atlantic Ocean-to maintain contact. Dick describes the beauty and potential dangers of the jungle and its wildlife. With his wife, Jackie-a nurse and midwife-plus four active children, you will experience the joys, sorrows, thrills, hardships, excitement, and the patience required to live on Brazil's Coffee Frontiers. Richard Ummel Second oldest in a family of 10 children, Richard L. Ummel loved the family dairy farm he helped manage-at age 16-after his father's death. Feeling God's hand on his life at age 22, Dick entered Manchester College, graduated; took Post-Graduate Work at Bethel College (Indiana), and Goshen Biblical Seminary; and studied under a Scholarship from Winona Lake School of Theology. After pastoring a year, the United Missionary Society (UMS) of the Missionary Church accepted his family for Church Planting in Brazil- 1956-1978. Dick records the endurance and triumphs of God's work done through a willing and committed ordinary person.
