Pray for Jorge and Hermelinda Damasceno, reaching out to Portuguese speaking people in Great Britain.September 16, 2014
The Damasceno family
Jorge and Hermelinda are missionaries who serve with the Baptist Churches in the Dereham region of the United Kingdom. They are assisting churches of the Baptist Union of Great Britain reach out to the communities of Portuguese-speaking migrant workers in the region.
Jorge and Hermelinda serve through the Amigos Project in the UK. Their work involves visiting migrant workers, assessing needs and working with the churches to develop strategies to welcome and provide services for the migrants so that they may grow in the understanding of God’s love, truth and justice. The Damascenos are serving as jointly appointed missionaries of International Ministries and JAMI, the cross-cultural mission agency of the National Baptist Convention (CBN) in Brazil.
They write: We are all doing well. Both of our children, Vinicius and Isabelle, are facing a turning point in their education. Vinicus got the grades he needed to make into his first choice University. He is going to Aston University to study International Business Management. The sad thing is he is leaving by the end of September, so we are going to be half empty nesters and our hearts are melting. We are going to miss him a lot. Isabelle is in her final two years of education before going to university, at the moment she is quite firm in her decision to go to medical school.
Please uphold both of our children before the Lord as they go through this crucial moment in their lives.
• Please pray for the guidance of the Spirit as we respond to the result of Who Cares survey.
• Pray for the World Mission Offering so there will be enough financial provision to invest in God’s Kingdom.
• Pray for us as we share the love of Jesus with those who do not know him yet.
