We had a busy and great weekend this year for Mothers Day. On Saturday we helped Igreja Batista Marape with their community service outreach event for mothers. The church is one community service location for a ministry called Pro-Viver (run by another church), and they do various service projects to minister to the community. Some of the things they do are provide food for the poor, provide some basic health care services,... For the special mothers day weekend event, they provided various services for the mothers of the children they minister to - things like cutting & styling hair, manicures, medical screening tests,... At the end of each of the morning and afternoon sessions they had a small service and I had the privilege of speaking and sharing Christ with them. In all 22 people accepted Christ and committed their lives to Him.
This morning I had the privilege of preaching at the Mothers Day service at Primeira Igreja Batista Sao Vicente, in the city of Sao Vicente. Pastor Gilberto is the lead pastor. We had a great time worshiping at the church, and we enjoyed the show that the children put on for their mothers, singing several songs and having a small skit to honor mothers. The church was very responsive to the message I preached, and at the end I shared the Gospel and 32 people accepted Christ and committed their lives to Him. It was a great day. The last 2 pictures below are of some of the people who accepted Christ on Sunday.
