A New Church To Work With

We have started to work with Igreja Peniel in Guaruja, which is led by Pastor Mesquita. We have already begun to work with another Igreja Peniel in another area of Guaruja. We will be working with the church in a nearby school in late April, and we will also be doing other things to help them to share Christ with people in their community. This past Sunday night I had the privilege of preaching in the church, which was started 4 years ago with 5 people. Pastor Mesquita and his team have helped the church grow to about 200 members, and they are committed to reaching their community for Jesus and to making disciples. The message on Sunday night was to encourage and challenge all members of the church to be missionaries wherever they are, and to faithfully join God in reaching people for Jesus and to help them to become the disciples God wants them to be. The leaders and members of the church received the message with excitement, and after I shared the Gospel to end the service 15 people accepted Christ and committed their lives to Him.
