May - June 2013

During the month of May, our church held a Mother’s Day tea with more than 30 ladies in attendance. Many of the ladies were visitors.and heard a clear presentation of the Gospel. The ladies of the church did a wonderful job decorating and preparing food.
The Bible Club has been going well. We continue to see new children come out each week. We have been seeing children come to Christ on a regular basis as well. The Bible Club has opened up a number of opportunities to witness to the parents. We will be putting on a program on Saturday, July 13th.for the parents. Please pray that many of the parents would attend.
Graziele is one of the moms we have met through the Bible Club. Ingrid started a Bible study.with her on May 13th. On June 17th, she had the privilege of leading her to the Lord. Graziele has a daughter, Samyra, and a brother, Matheus, that come to Bible Club on Saturdays. Please pray for the salvation of Samyra’s father.
Please continue to pray for our tract distribution. We want to thank the churches and individuals who have given specifically for tracts. If you would like to contribute to our tract fund, please mark the offering “Tracts for Brazil”.
Thank you for your continued prayers. We are grateful for the many folks who lift us up in prayer. I was reminded recently of a quote about prayer, “All our problems are prayer problems.”. We serve a big God who can meet all of our needs.

March - April 2013

As we mentioned in our last prayer letter, we have set a goal to pass out 100,000 tracts this years. We are currently working toward that goal. We are still in need of tracts. If you would like to give toward the tracts, please mark you offering as 'Tracts for Brazil'.

We started a Bible Club at our house on Saturday mornings in March. The first week we had 9 children show up! Each week we have had at least two new kids and have averaged 13 in attendance. Around 30 different children have participated at least one time. The kids are well-behaved and enjoy the songs, Bible stories, and games. Some of them arrive at our house an hour and a half early! In April, Ingrid and Daniela (a lady from church) were able to lead the mother of one of the boys, Cassia, to the Lord. Two other mothers, Maria Isabel and Graziele, are interested in doing Bible studies. Please pray that we will continue to see fruit as we try to reach these children and their families.

We are planning of having a service at our home on the 24th of May. Please pray that many of the parents we've contacted through the Bible Club would come to hear the Gospel. There is also a possibility that we would be able to have a weekly service at our home. Please pray for wisdom regarding this opportunity.

Thank you for your support, both prayer and financial.
