Sharing Christ one family at a time…

The Lord has given us a great victory in being able to start a new project of evangelism in the nearby community of Carrapatinho. “Project Zaccheus” is run by staff and students on Saturday nights with the objective of holding Bible studies in the homes of the families. After 5 years of reaching out to the children in student ministries we are starting to see fruit that is impacting families as we minister in the homes teaching them God`s word. Besides the weekly children`s program run by the students, one of our interns, Mileide, has been working with the teens on Saturdays and Sundays. She runs studies on Saturdays and the art and craft courses on Sunday afternoons. Please pray that we may continue persevering in this open door that the Lord has laid before us.

Learning a Lesson from life on a Garbage Dump

Tarcilene Souza, one of our interns, heads up the work we do with the people that live on the town dump. She wrote this…

“While ministering on the dump God made me stop and think about the life of Mrs. Maria. She is an elderly lady who works here on the dump. She is a believer, however her husband is not. Sister Maria has suffered a lot because since childhood she has worked on the dump site separating things that can get money for them to survive and she has never experienced a better life than that. Yet she is never sad but rather shows a lot of joy and peace in her heart. She says that her joy is Jesus. Mrs. Maria eats the food that she finds on the dump and dresses with the clothing that is given to her. It impresses me so much that sister Maria never questions God about her situation, always being grateful to God and never complaining. Sister Maria has taught me that we should always be grateful to God in all things and for all things that we have because God takes care of us and gives us His grace. Sister Maria is an example of a Christian who is faithful to God.”
