Sorry we haven't posted in a while! We just didn't have access to wifi and we've had some really loooooong days. I really don't even know if I can convey in words how God has been working here. We've fallen in love with the local people here that are reaching into their own communities with God's love. As we've partnered with them, we've been humbled by their love and work in the places where they live. God has really moved over the last couple of days. In a place w
Sunday was such a specail day worshiping with our Brazilian brothers and sisters in Christ. Jay preached through a translator Sunday morning and Sunday evening and Jonathan led a few songs in English. It was a very special experience and God worked through both services.

Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil."
Be in prayer for our missionary team as we prepare to travel to Brazil this month. Porto Alegre is comparable in size to Atlanta but the entire state is less than 2% evangelized and darkly bound by the stronghold of spiritist movemnets, voodoo and satanic worship. Pray as we get last minute items together and work on our testimonies, lessons and messages. #mission #BrazilTeam
