Praying for people groups around the world during the mission conference
We celebrated the diversity of God’s people during the closing worship by dressing in clothing typical of various cultures
Elza with her son Philippe (center) and her husband Carlos (not pictured) are preparing to serve in rural West Africa
We encouraged Flávia to complete her university education (she is working on a nursing degree) and then enroll in the cross-cultural mission training program where we serve as pastoral counselors and professors. It is exciting to see that God is raising up mission workers from every continent to share the transforming power of the good news of Jesus that responds to human need at every level: hunger, illiteracy, lack of health care services and lack of hope.
Our current students are coming into the home stretch of their 7-month intensive training program. Please pray for an extra measure of strength and endurance as they complete their coursework and prepare for internships on four continents. Pray for us as we prepare to teach an intensive course called “Missão Integral” (Holistic Mission). We’ll tell you more about that course in another prayer letter.
Thank you for partnering with us in this ministry!
