A Great First School Outreach Of The Year

We spoke at the EE Ary school in the city of Cubatão this week. Since it is now the end of summer here in Brazil and schools are starting up again, it was our first school outreach event this year. Our project in the schools is called Qualidade De Vida (Quality Of Life). EE Ary is a state school for high school students, and some students go in the morning, some in the afternoon, and others at night. We worked with Primeira Igreja Batista Cubatão in the school, and we spoke in 39 classes in 3 days (Monday morning, Tuesday night, and Wednesday afternoon).

The school principal Luis was very excited to have our project in his school, especially because we are Americans and when we give our speech in each class we speak in English. We always encourage the students to learn English if they can, because they will have better opportunities in their lives if they can speak English. We were very well received by the students and the teachers, and we had a great week at the school. God did a great work in the hearts and lives of many of the students & teachers, and many received Christ and committed their lives to Him - over 1030 students and 13 teachers. What an awesome God we serve.
