We have gone to announce the Gospel
I am sharing a little of what the Lord has done and the blessings He has allowed at Ilha Grande dos Paulinos.
Maria de Lurdes, 82 years of age, a matriarch of the island., was baptized. Even without the approval of some members of her family, she remained firm in her purpose. I believe that, seeing her decision, many will also be converted.
The Lord has moved among the youth of the Community and touched some of them who are open to the Gospel and changed their way of thinking. Whenever we used to talk with them, there was no response, which made it very difficult to Interact, I believe because of shyness. Now we can converse more openly with them.
We travelled to Jacaré, a Community of the island. about 1h20’ from where the greater concentration of inhabitants are. To get there is quite challenging. The way is a path that goes through preservation land, making access difficult and subjecting us to meet up with snakes and other animals. At Jacaré we were introduced to two famlies that live very like the indians, only a little more modern. Thank God it was possible to minister to them about Jesus.
I am thankful for the prayers and offerings and ask you to continue praying for the spreading of the Gospel on the islands of Papagaio and Barrinha, where we have gone to announce the gospel of the Kingdom of God.
PEACE BE WITH YOU!
