Harold and Lílian Gilmer : October 2020 Prayer Letter
Harold and Lilian Gilmer – South America Director, Church Planter and Bible Translation in São Paulo, Brazil.
“Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the
power that worketh in us, unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus . . .” (Ephesians 3:20-21a).
It is such a joy to have all of our people together for worship. With the use of the tent, we were able to double our attendance. We just have one problem: The tent is already small. What a great problem to have! The great news is that with the parking lot cemented, we do have room for expansion. Please pray with us as we work on expanding our tent. Please also pray for the provision of the land. Thank you for your prayers!
Our stated Mission at the Trinitarian Bible Society of Brazil is: “A faithful Bible for every person.” Brazil alone has over two hundred million people, and in total, there are over two hundred seventy million Portuguese speakers around the World. Besides the Bibles that we distribute ourselves, the Lord has given us many partnerships over the years in spreading the Faithful Word, such as Bearing Precious Seed, BEAMS, and others, who are responsible for the bulk of our Bible distribution. One of our key partners just reported that they printed 1.199.696 complete Portuguese Bibles and are giving us an offering of US$ 100,000.00 for our Bible printing fund! The news of this offering came the night before we needed to decide on a reprint of Bibles in South Korea. Truly “… My God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:19). This offering covers one third of our printing needs. Please do remember us in your prayers, for we still lack US$ 200,000.00 in our Bible printing fund at this time. Thank you for your prayers!
Praise and Prayer for Support
The Lord is providing for us in a wonderful way through special offerings, for which we can only say Thank You. As the LORD guides, please do share the links to our Ministry Overview and PowerPoint Presentation. We are still in need of regular supporters for this ministry. Thank you for your prayers!
Yours fellow servants in Brazil,
Harold, Lílian, Raphael and Danielle
