Pray for Brazil
The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest. Matthew 9:37-38
On Fridays, we have wonderful outreaches at the square in the city center with sketch board and mime. The presence of God is so real in our midst. Lives are touched every time. Recently I preached about being freed by the Finished Work; Jesus Christ did it all so that He could be our peace at all times. “Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free,” (Galatians 5: 1). After the message, nine people prayed with us professing Jesus Christ as Savior.
Pray for wisdom in street evangelism, sketch board and mime. May God will give us discernment in how to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Pray that God will give us a place for church services closer to the city center. Many brothers living on the other side of the city are unable to get to church as they cannot afford a bus fare. We will need an increase in the offerings in order to make this move.
Our country is in one of the most complicated recessions with more than 14 million people without jobs. It has also brought problems in many evangelical churches, including ours.
Pray for our family: Joel serving in the army at the Officers Reserve Training Center and his desire to pursue a career as an army officer; Natã’s decisions for his future studies; an increase in salary for my wife, Elaine, to help support our family; her health with throat surgery in the coming months. Pastor Geraldo, Elaine, Isac, Joel, and Natã Oliveira
