This Past Week

We had a very busy and very good week. We have been running around alot in our spare time working on the dual citizenship process, and we have completed 13 of the 20 different documents that we need to provide. We have to go to different places to do each one of them, so we are running all over Santos lately. We will be very glad when the process is over with.

We also had a great event in a municipal school in Santos called EMEF Gota de Leite school. We worked with Igreja Batista Nova Jerusalem, and they did a great job helping and supporting and praying for this outreach event. We spoke in the school on Monday morning and Tuesday afternoon, and the school has students in 1st through 5th grades. Then we spoke to a group of adults studying at night on Wednesday night. When we speak at night the adults appear more difficult to share Christ with, but God did a great work in the hearts of the people and 44 of the 48 people we spoke to received Christ and committed their lives to Him, including 2 teachers and the coordinator for the night period. Overall 296 students and 10 teachers and 2 school coordinators received Christ and committed their lives to Him. We had a great time in the school, and they very much appreciated our coming to help their students & teachers & families. The school also has accepted the church's offer to do more with them to help the families of the school.
