This past Monday morning and Tuesday night we worked with Igreja Batista Chico de Paula in a state school in their "bairro". The church is a small church that is only 7 years old, and is led by Pastor Jose Cavalcante. We have begun to work with them to help share Christ in their community. The school is called EE Bartolomeu Gusmao, and is a state school with high school students and some adult classes at night. The principal is married to the principal of another school, and that school recommended us to this one because they liked our project when we did it last year.
The church participation during the outreach event was great, and they had 5 or 6 people with us each day. Once again, God went ahead of us and prepared many hearts to hear the Good News of Jesus. We praise God that 361 students and 7 teachers accepted Christ and committed their lives to Him, including approx. 60 adults studying at night. We also had several opportunities to discuss the church with students, and the church is going to talk to the school about doing some type of other events there as follow-up to our project.
