This past week we worked with Igreja Batista Areia Branca and various other churches in a government housing project for poor people and in the surrounding neighborhood in Santos. Approx. 35 people from the various churches participated on the team during the week, as well as several people in the church who made lunch for everyone each day. The entire Mega Trans project during the month of July was held in 500 cities in every state of Brazil.
On Monday and Tuesday we visited apartments in the complex to share Jesus, and also to offer home Bible studies for the families. From Wednesday through Friday we moved to the streets in the surrounding neighborhood and we had many opportunities to share Jesus and help and encourage people in their walk with God. We met a wide variety of people from various religious backgrounds. We met various people who practice the Spiritist religion here, and many of them believe that Jesus already lives in their hearts when they are born and that they do not need to repent from their sins and invite & receive Jesus as their Lord and Savior.
Many people were open to hear the Gospel, and others were not. We praise God that more than 30 adults accepted Christ during the week, and also numerous children accepted Christ during some of the programs for children that the church held. There were also 20+ home Bible studies scheduled, and many many seeds of the Gospel were planted as well.
