Harold and Lílian Gilmer : December 2021 Prayer Letter
Harold and Lilian Gilmer – South America Director, Church Planter and Bible Translation in São Paulo, Brazil.
“O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him.” (Psalm 34:8).
Church Planting – Supporting Two More Missionaries
As a result of our Mission´s Conference, the faith promise pledges were increased for this coming year. With this, our little congregation will be taking two more missionaries on for support: one to the Muslims (which are increasing in Brazil) and another one to the native Brazilian´s in a remote Amazon region.
Bible Ministry – The Lord Provides!
In September of last year, we made known our printing fund needs for this year. Rejoice with us, for the funds for this year were provided in full on the exact day that we needed them. The Lord Provides!
Rejoice with as well that our Bible distribution funds were used in full this year! We used the remainder of our funds to donate 340 Bibles to a ministry that recovers drug addicts using the Bible as their textbook. Now, please pray with us for the replenishing of these funds for 2022. The Lord Provides!
Going Home . . .
On December 10th, the Lord called my uncle, Dr. Mike Patterson, to his Heavenly Home. This is great loss to us, for just two
months ago, Lílian lost her physical dad, but with Uncle Mike´s passing, she lost her heart dad. Uncle Mike took her under his wings and treated her as his own daughter. How she loved Uncle Mike, her true father figure. We are comforted with the blessed assurance of our meeting again, because of our Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ.
The Lord provided miles so I could attend the funeral on the behalf of our family in Brazil. Truly, this is “our loss and Heaven´s gain”.
Yours fellow servants in Brazil,
Harold, Lílian, Raphael and Danielle
