Igreja Batista do Horto

On Sunday night I had the privilege to preach at Igreja Batista do Horto, which is a small church in Santos. The "bairro" that the church is located in is a mix of middle class to poor people, with a favela as part of the area. We have started working with Pastor Anderson and the church to help them to share the Good News of Jesus in their community, and we will be working with them in a school in late November. Our friend Rebeca was my interpreter. The message was well received by the church, and at the end I shared the gospel and 7 people accepted Christ and committed their lives to Him. It is always a joy and a privilege to serve God in this way. After the service we enjoyed some cake and Guarana (a popular soft drink in Brazil) with the church, and we enjoyed getting to know some of the members better.
