The Eagle (a lament)

No more trees,

He sighs with a cry!

His wings a symbol

He thought of strength  

So he must not relent


Flying, he soars until

Reality, the window

He looks through

Shows him the nothing

His world became


Alone, he stands

His strength gone

Solitude, his only friend

Not by might,

Not by power


But my Spirit

Says the Lord

To a nation once

Mighty and strong

But it is no more!

I have been committed to teaching the truth of the Word of God beginning with Trans World Radio on Bonaire, N.A and Swaziland, Africa (1969-1980), then through churches in the United States in both English and Portuguese and then through ministry in Israel (2005-2006). This ministry continues through local Bible studies and outreach to the world via the internet. I have written a book about my life from that of an orphan in Brazil to missionary in 5 countries.
