It is good to send greetings to all of you and to thank you for all that you do to participate in this ministry. We thank God for your prayers and support of the work here. Thank you so much for praying for our Spring Campaign. We weren’t really sure what to expect since it was the first one we have ever done, but I am grateful to share with you that it went amazingly well.
We had over 50 first-time adult visitors during those 5 weeks. We had many salvation decisions, and we had 2 people baptized during the campaign as well. On October 12, Brazil recognizes Children’s Day as a national holiday. It fell on Wednesday this year, so we modified our service times and planned a special event for the kids and families in our area. There were over 100 people who came through that afternoon, and we had at least 11 salvation decisions that day. One of the greatest parts of the day was to see how many of our adults and teens signed up to help and how they all got involved in making the day a success.
In November, we held our Missions Conference, and we hosted 2 Brazilian church planters and their families. The services were well attended. Our people responded at the altar every night, and at the end of the conference, we had 4 people surrender their lives to serve God full-time. Praise the Lord!
Please keep our church in your prayers as we follow up on new visitors and as we encourage our people in giving to missions. Our goal is to take both of these church plants on for financial support. Also keep our upcoming Christmas services in your prayers. We hope to see people saved and families added to the church.
From our family to yours, we wish you a Merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year! We love you, and we are so thankful for your faithful prayers and support throughout this entire year. May God be honored by your sacrifice and investment in the work.
Declaring His glory,
