Reaching Students & Teachers For Jesus

We had our Qualidade De Vida (Quality Of Life) outreach project in the municipal school EM Jacob Andrade in São Vicente on Monday and Tuesday. We worked with Capela Calvario church, which is located near the school. Pastor Celso and Pastor Chris (from Germany) lead the church, and each of them helped as our interpreters in the school, as did a few more people from the church. The school is located in a poor favela area of São Vicente, and has students from 1st to 4th grades. The participation of Capela Calvario was great, and we had 8 people from the church with us on Monday morning, and 6 more on Tuesday afternoon. We praise God for the good participation of the church, and for going ahead of us and preparing many hearts. 335 students, 6 teachers, and the Vice Principal accepted Christ and committed their lives to Him. The school leaders loved the project, and they want us to come back and speak to the parents at a future parents meeting. This will be a good opportunity to reach some families for Jesus. The school also is interested in receiving more help from the church, which is what we always pray and hope for.
