This week we worked with Primeira Igreja Batista Cubatao in a municipal school in the city of Cubatao. The school is for students from 5th to 8th grade. The participation of the church was very good, and we had 4 to 5 people helping us each day. Three members of the church helped as some of our interpreters - Amanda, Joelma, and 12 year old Daniel.
Besides the problem we had with one of the teachers that I talked about in a post on Monday, we had a very good outreach event in the school. God worked in a great way in the hearts of many of the students and teachers, and many eagerly listened to the Gospel message. We praise God that 509 students and 4 teachers accepted Christ and committed their lives to Him.
One of the members of the church is a teacher at the school, and she started a Bible club awhile back on 2 Saturdays each month. We encouraged the students to participate in this, as it would help them to grow in their new relationship with the Lord and help them in their lives. It is great that the church has this, and it will be a good tool for them to follow up with the many who accepted Christ.
