First School Of The Year

On Monday and Tuesday mornings we spoke in a school in the Sao Mateus area of Sao Paulo. This area in the East Zone of Sao Paulo is a very poor area, and there are many problems of violence, drugs, alcoholism, physical abuse in families,... We worked with Igreja Batista IV Centenario (Pastor Haroldo) in the school, which has students in the 1st grade through 8th grade. We spoke in the morning period to 3rd & 4th graders, and also to 7th and 8th graders. Next week we will return to the school to finish speaking to the night period on Monday night, and then on Tuesday and Wednesday afternoon. We had a great time with the students at the school, and God moved in a powerful way. Over 450 students and 12 teachers accepted Christ in the 2 days we spoke. This trip was also an opportunity to see some friends of ours in the Sao Paulo area, which was fun.
