"Grace to you and peace from God the Father and our Lord Jesus Christ, who gave Himself for our sins, that He might deliver us from this present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father, to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen." (Galatians 1:3-5)

 

Dear friends,

The other day I was thinking about the goodness and care of God. That goodness and care that led our Lord to go up to the cross, and there lay down His life for us, but that care continues to manifest itself today in our lives through the many deliverances that we obtain from the Lord; those visible and invisible. In my reflections I realized how very selfish I sometimes am to think that this care is the exclusive property of the redeemed ones, It is like I wanted to monopolize the virtues of God only for me and forget that God and everything which emanates from him is available for all humankind, " For God so loved the world. "

Thank you Lord for your care and deliverance according to thy will and not mine and that it is accessible to all who believe.

 Ministry

God is good. From May this year, we have had seven water baptisms take place in the Portuguese-speaking congregation. It was a beautiful moment where we had the presence of several people in the congregation including nonbelievers. It was a great testimony that the God we serve is still active and working in this world.

We are in the planning stages to start an International club. We are praying to develop strategies to reach out to the people of various nationalities in the community.

The idea of a place where they can come and listen to God’s word, have a chat, have some fun, relax, meet friends, be prayed for and be themselves has been very attractive for many of those we have been inviting (most non-believers). We are soaring with God and allowing the Spirit to lead us on.

 Prayer Request

 Pray that:
