New Partnership With A Church

We have recently begun to work with Capela Calvario in the city of Sao Vicente to help them to share Christ in their community. One of our interpreters, Patricia, who has helped us in a couple of schools, is a member of the church. The church is led by Pastor Celso and Pastor Chris, who is from Germany. We will be working with them in a school near the church in May, and we will also be leading a People Sharing Jesus seminar at the church on 2 Sunday mornings in May. Last night I had the privilege of preaching in the Sunday night service at Capela Calvario. In Brazil the night service is the main service on Sunday, unlike the US where the morning service is the largest attended service. Pastor Chris was my interpreter. We had a great time of worship with our new friends there, and God spoke in a powerful way in the hearts of the people. Towards the end of the service we shared the Gospel and 4 people accepted Christ and committed their lives to Him. I will also have the privilege of speaking in their Good Friday service, and afterwards we will be joining the church for their "churrasco" party. Churrasco is the Brazilian version of BBQ, and it is great.
