Birth of Our Son

We are excited to announce the new addition to the family! Andrew Jackson Nichols was born on January 14th. Both mom and baby are doing well! Praise the Lord, the delivery went well and Andrew is a strong, healthy boy! We are loving having two little boys, and it is fun to see how excited Gabe is to have a little brother.


Starting A Blog

For most of deputation, we have not felt that we had enough things to say to start a blog or post things on social media. Now as we are nearing the end of deputation and decisions and changes are happening at a much quicker pace, there are many things we can share. Although many of the things that we post here on our website will be put in the next prayer letter, we wanted to give people a way to stay more up-to-date with what is going on in our lives.

The end is in sight. We are currently at 94% of our support and are hoping to be in Brazil in the next few months. With our departure time nearing, we have been looking at ticket prices for different dates, comparing the baggage policies for each airline, sorting through our belongings, buying clothes and other items to take with us, and many other things.

Most importantly, though, we have been praying much. James 1:5 says “If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally…” We lack wisdom on many upcoming decisions and need God’s guidance and direction to show us the right path.

We are so thankful for every one of you who take time out of your busy life to pray for us! Here are some important prayer requests that we have.

Prayer Requests:

1. Wisdom for upcoming decisions

2. 100% support

3. Moving (safety, not stressful, tickets, house, car, etc.)

If anyone has any questions or comments for us, we would love to hear from you! We can be contacted at (256)617-3424 or

In Christ,

Nate, Kate, & Gabe Nichols
