This is another church we have started to work with to help them to share Christ. The church, which is led by Pastor Alipio, is located in an area of Guaruja with middle class residents and it also has a favela nearby with many poor people. We will be working with them in a school near the church in October and in others in the future. I had the privilege to preach in the church this past Sunday night, and Vera helped as my interpreter. Vera and her husband Harold are Germans who moved to Brazil 3 1/2 years ago. They own a hotel on Enseada Beach in Guaruja. The church members seemed to respond well to God's message and challenge to join Him in His work by sharing the Gospel and reaching others for Christ, and then working hard to make disciples. I also shared the Gospel at the end of the service and 3 people received Christ and committed their lives to Him. At least 2 of the 3 were members of the church, but until Sunday night did not have a reconciled relationship with God through His Son Jesus.
