Traffic, Traffic, Traffic

We spoke in our last school of the year on Monday and Tuesday in Sao Paulo. The school is located in a poor section of the East Zone of Sao Paulo, and it took quite awhile for us to get there from Santos. We spent 2 1/2 hours each way, each day, to get to the school and back, totalling 10 hours of driving time in 2 days ... and it was all worth it. Actually the drive from Santos to Sao Paulo is not bad, only 1 hour. But then the fun starts. We spent 1 1/2 hours each way (each day) in the Sao Paulo traffic, which was horrible. Besides the bad traffic, the drivers in Sao Paulo are pretty bad, so that makes it even more fun. But it was all worth it, and God did a great work in the hearts of many students and teachers. 683 students and 13 teachers accepted Christ and committed their lives to Him. The church we worked with, Igreja Metodista Livre, did a great job, and they had 8 people to help us on Monday and 5 on Tuesday.
we were in the Sao Paulo traffic for 6 hours in 2 days

They must be starving for Christ there. Good work and God bless.

They are very open to the Gospel here, praise God. It is a special time in Brazil right now, as many people are coming to Christ, and also there are more and more people going out from the churches as missionaries to other countries. It's a great privilege for us to be a part of what God is doing.
