Heartbeat - October 2019

October 1, 2019


For several years, Denis Salgado has served Wisdom for the Heart as our Portuguese translator. He takes my English manuscripts, translates them into Portuguese, records audio of those messages, and makes the lessons available for radio and podcasts. Denis recently launched a brand new website to better serve our Portuguese speaking listeners.

Denis was born in Brazil, but I met him here in Cary, North Carolina. He came to the United States to study at Shepherd’s Theological Seminary where I serve as President. His wife Tiffany is a United States citizen, but they met each other in Brazil. Tiffany is the daughter of missionaries who moved there when she was a baby.

The Salgados are about to go through some transitions. They have one beautiful daughter and a little boy on the way. Their son is expected to be born this month. In addition, Denis is going to further his education and is pursuing a PhD in New Testament studies at the University of Edinburgh in Scotland.

Denis will continue his ministry with Wisdom for the Heart and will be developing our ever-growing library of Portuguese resources. Please pray for this precious couple. I’m thankful that God placed them on the Wisdom team and I’m looking forward to our continued partnership in spreading the truth of God’s Word around the world.
