We held our Qualidade De Vida outreach project in a municipal school in Caruara this week, and we are praising God for what He did in the hearts and lives of the students, teachers, and school leaders. Caruara is a poor small village tucked away in the forest between the cities of Guaruja and Bertioga, and is about an hour and 15 minutes from where we live. We know the principal of the school, Joelma, because we worked with her church (Primeira Igreja Batista in Cubatao) in a school earlier this year in Cubatao. Joelma helped as one of our interpreters, as did one of the teachers Anita and her sister Atani.
We spoke 3 days in the school, which is for students in 1st to 9th grades. They also have some classes at night for adults. The project went great, and the receptivity of the students and teachers to the Gospel was incredible. In some of the classes every student and the teacher accepted Christ. God touched and prepared many hearts before our visits, and 396 students and 9 teachers and the principal's assistant accepted Christ and committed their lives to Him. Let's pray that God will continue to do a mighty work in their hearts and lives and families, for His glory.
