Final Outreach Event Before Winter Break

We held our final school outreach project for the 1st semester this week in Santos. We spoke at the EM Pedro II municipal school in Santos on Monday morning, Tuesday night, and Wednesday afternoon. We worked with Igreja Batista Ponta da Praia, which is located very close to the school. The participation of the church was very good, and most of our interpreters were from their church. The school has students in the 1st through 8th grades, as well as some night classes for adults. We spoke in 32 classes in 3 days, and we had a great time in the school. The school leaders told us that the teachers and students really loved our project, and they were very appreciative for the help. They recommended us to 3 more schools in the Santos municipal school system. God touched and prepared many hearts, and 645 students (including over 100 adults studying at night) and 15 teachers accepted Christ and committed their lives to Him. What a great way to finish the first half of the year.
