On the warm afternoon of 23 October, Jonny Gumbel and Ben Bryant were licensed by Bishop Eduardo, the Bishop of Rio, supported by Dean Abimael. The service was joyful and a significant moment in the life of Christ Church Rio as two more chaplains start their ministry. 

Jonny and Tara have been in Rio for two months and are starting to settle and find their way round. Ben and Martha arrived just over two weeks ago and are still sorting out their home and other practicalities. We wish them well and continue to pray for them as they continue to pioneer the ministry in Rio de Janeiro. 

It was the privilege of Richard Bromley, the ICS Mission Director to be able to present Jonny and Ben to the Bishop and to support them at this great stage of their ministry.
