Harold Gilmer: July-August 2019 Prayer Letter

Dear Brethren,

“But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you” (Matthew 6:33).

Special Praise and Prayer
We were blessed to have my mother, Linda Gilmer, in Church with us yesterday. She was accompanied by my father, her walker and her nurse, Cynthia, who has taken care of my mother as her own child. The people were so happy to see her back! Thank you for your prayers on her behalf.

The Lord also gave a wonderful three week furlough. We were in eight Churches and went through eight States. The Lord gave the kids much grace to endure the traveling. It was so refreshing to be in each Church and to be with our family and dear friends, again.

Our hearts go out to Spencer Mountain Baptist Church, in Gastonia, as their pastor was placed in hospice care while we were with them. Please also remember Stevan, the four year old son of the associate pastor of New Life Baptist Church here in São Paulo, Brazil, who is undergoing chemotherapy for lymphatic cancer.

Church Planting
In the month of July, our team held Vacation Bible School at our new Congregation, with the presence of sixty kids each day and several decisions for Christ. We praise the Lord for the team He gave us. Please continue to pray for the sell of the properties that were given to us and for the purchase of the house we are meeting in. Progress is being made in the sale.

Bible Ministry
The main we reason for our brief furlough in the month of July was to attend a Convention on behalf of our Bible Ministry, the Trinitariana Bible Society of Brazil. Praise the Lord for a good Convention. Please continue to pray for wisdom in caring for this ministry which is so dear to our Lord’s heart.

Your fellow servants in Brazil,
Harold, Lílian, Raphael and Danielle
