The Leamans

Leamans 2019

Born to missionary parents in the country of Brazil, Rev. Doug Leaman grew up in the Bible Presbyterian Church where his dad served as missionary and pastor for many years. After graduating from The Master\'s College in 1995, Doug worked in Brazil for almost a decade, during which time he married Leah. They learned about the language, culture, customs, and people of Brazil while developing a heart for ministering to Brazilian people. After 500 years of Roman Catholicism, spiritism, a growing secularism, rampant political corruption, and an evangelical world that is inundated with the latest fads from around the world, Brazil is in need of the winds of the Reformation.

Doug is an ordained minister of the gospel in the Bible Presbyterian Church. He has a Master of Divinity degree from Western Reformed Seminary and a Master of Arts degree in Biblical Counseling from The Master\'s College as well as biblical counseling certification through NANC. His mission is to teach biblical counseling/discipleship and to preach the gospel as far and wide as the Lord will allow in cooperation with churches faithful to the gospel. The Lord has now blessed Doug and Leah with a family of seven boys.

Please pray for the Leamans.

Prayer Requests

Project Soli Deo Gloria, Brazil (Leaman)

June 2020

Thanking God for:

  • The ability to get a flight out of Brazil before more strict travel restrictions were put in place.
  • The safe trip driving across America and the wonderful body of Christ we were able to visit along the way.
  • Our safe arrival to Washington state for the first leg of the journey.

 

Please Pray for:

  • Safe visits and good communication about the ministry in Brazil.
  • The continuing development of the project and for the finalization of the legal aspects which have been delayed because of Covid-19.
  • The writing project dealing with sanctification that I have been asked to take part in, and online education for the International College of Reformed Theology (FITREF), where I teach counseling courses.
