I ran across an old article of mine in which I’d
mentioned we had started our Brazilian magazine,
Edificação, in August, 1987. I’m not big on
anniversaries, but this reminded me that, if that
date is correct, it’s been 30 years publishing
this teaching tool.

We’ve had a year here and there where publishing
was not possible. Some years also were lean ones.
But 2017 was better, with four issues published.

In the early days, the magazine was published 10
times a year. We maintained that schedule for many
years. Then came hard times, when writers and
funds were scarce, and our work multiplied.

We’re in a struggle to return to a more frequent
schedule. That may mean for now that I will write
more of the content.

In hard times and lean, we’re grateful the Lord
has used this means of teaching to help the
Brazilian church. Thirty years of ink doesn’t wash
out easily.

HIDDEN, by J. Randal Matheny

A child, excited over trinkets,
Jumps and trembles in open glee;
But in possession of life eternal,
Is hidden my fullest ecstasy—
How can this be?! How can this be?!
