Team Church Planting
Late in july, Lílian me called with wonderful news: “Pr. Carlos and Neusa are expecting a child!” This was a miracle baby, for medically, they were unable to have children. However, our hearts sank this week with news that they discovered through an ultra-sound their baby is severally deformed and will very likely not make it to term. The doctor said that even if the baby does make it, it would live in a vegetative state. She almost lost the baby already a couple of weeks ago. Please pray for Pr. Carlos and Neusa—our hearts are saddened.
When I was an intern at the Heritage Baptist Church in Pensacola, Florida, Pr. Gerald Manly pointed out to us interns the importance that evangelism be carried out by local Churches. “If you are out evangelizing a person, along with someone from another local church, and the person accepts the Lord, in which church will they be baptized? You need to go out witnessing with people from your local church.”
We are about to receive from the press our new Gospel of John, with a beautiful attractive cover, the plan of Salvation as found in the Gospel of John, and an invitation to a local Church on the back cover. We want to help local churches to fulfill the Great Commission, by supplying them with beautiful attractive materials. Brethren, pray for us.
Your servants in Brazil,
Harold, Lílian, Raphael and Danielle
