Pray for our Ministry:
God is doing some really big things in Porto Alegre and in Rio Grande do Sul this year! We are in conversations about planting a new church in PoA this year, the first in 15 years. We are pursuing credentials to lead the struggling seminary with hopes to reform and strengthen the program to provide quality, trained leaders to plant more churches in our state. We are working to plant churches in cities north of PoA as well as hoping the new IMB team members will be able to develop strategy to be more effective in planting more new churches in some 317 cities in the state of Rio Grande do Sul. Our team has also been able to plow new ground and begin to see open doors for seed sowing on several university campuses in Porto Alegre. God is moving here!
Please pray specifically today for these things:
For Pastor Cabral:
To share the vision and lead the charge to plant a new chuch in the heart of Porto Alegre.
That a strong Biblical foundation will be laid in this church and the ministry will be multiplied.
That the right leadership team will be formed and God will guide and protect each member to develop skills and talents to best serve His church.
For Pastor Eduardo:
To clearly hear the call of God to discern if he is the man to lead the seminary in PoA and if so, that God will provide financially for training.
That current seminary leaders will share the vision of new leadership and that we will find God's plan and have unity of hearts and vision as changes are introduced.
For our N. American and National church planting partners:
To have unity in vision, strength, discernment, energy and courage to press forward as they plant new churches.
That convention leaders and the Brazil Home Mission Board can mend relationships and work together for the advancement of the kingdom of God.
For the Porto Alegre university campuses:
To see more students come to know Christ and have influence to shape the campus culture.
For protection in proclaiming truth in a hostile environment.
