We want to thank you once again for your faithful prayers and support for this ministry. Thank you for your prayers for Amy and the kids and their health. They were released by the doctor to fly home, and we all feel very blessed to be together again. We have had so much fun as a family, on dates and while serving the Lord together. We appreciate your continued prayers for Amy’s health, especially as she needs to follow up with doctors to seek treatment for her chronic breathing difficulty.
We thank the Lord for the visitors and the people saved these last two months. In Cotia, it was a joy to see Paulo, a young man who is dealing with drug addiction, smiling, singing, and listening intently to the preaching. Marcello, a young man I gave a ride to, came to church and listened to the Gospel for the first time. It was great to share God’s eternal love and promise of salvation with this very lonely young man. Dina, a single mom with four children, realized her need for baptism and asked if I would baptize her in the river. My wife and I took her through the Bible, and she was intent on following the Lord in believer’s baptism! She has been faithful to church and has a servant’s heart. She lives in a one-room shack and has had to starve at times, dividing the last piece of bread among her children. For one event, she brought a 2-liter bottle of soda and was so happy to help. We do what we can, yet we would like to do much more for them. If you would like to contribute to help any of the needy families we visit each week, please address your funds to “Needy Families.”
URGENT NEED FOR BUILDING PROJECT FUNDS ON OUR TWO CHURCHES!
We are not asking for ourselves, rather for our church people and for the lost souls!! Please help us raise the remaining $55,000 of the needed funds for the church building projects. The needs are mounting, prices are rising, and the costs are beyond us.
We are still experiencing some cold weather, and it is important for the workers to finish closing in the walls and windows at the new church plant. We are not waiting until the building is finished to start using this building; and, praise the Lord, it is filling up even before we can get the bathrooms installed and the front door on! This is an urgent need!!
In Sao Paulo
We are planning a Thanksgiving dinner in our Sao Paulo building and have a lot of work that needs to be done in order to have the building ready. The church people are excited about setting up, yet we are racing to get the needed work done in order to even clean up and set up for the event. We will be keeping track to see how much comes in and how much work we will be able to do.
Thank you again to those of you who have taken part in these exciting building projects! If you have not yet had a chance to participate and would like to, please send funds to FBMI, 507 State Street, Hammond, IN 46320.
God bless you, and thank you again for all of your prayers and financial support. We are doing our part, and we are truly grateful for those of you who are doing your part to keep us on the field!
In His service,
The Vallejo Family
