Harold and Lílian Gilmer : May 2022 Prayer Letter
Harold and Lilian Gilmer – South America Director, Church Planter and Bible Translation in São Paulo, Brazil.
“O magnify the LORD with me, and let us exalt his name together” (Psalm 34:3).
Church Planting – God is still at work
Where a door closes a window opens up – The owners rejected our offer to buy our current location, and it also came to our attention that a portion of the land (right where the tent is located) actually belongs to the city. The realtors we are working with found a piece of land literally just up the street, for a much better price. We are now looking into this land. Please continue to pray with us for the Lord´s provision and direction as to the
right location. At our Anniversary Conference, my father challenged the people to give toward the purchase of the land. It was beautiful to see their spontaneity to give. A very big Thank You to Gateway Baptist Church for the special offering towards the purchase of the land.
Rejoice with us for 5 decisions for Salvation – Praise God, two young people and three adults made decisions for Christ this past month. Praise the Lord for the increase!
Rejoice with us for 5 baptized – Praise God, three young people and two adults followed the Lord in believer´s baptism this past month. One of the people baptized was Rita, whom my mother, Linda Gilmer, had the privilege of leading to the Lord. What a joy to see people desirous to follow our Lord!
Rejoice with us for the new tent roof – We replaced the roof just in time for our Anniversary Conference. A very special Thank You to the Senior Class at Pensacola Christian College for sending the special offering for the new tent roof. May God bless these young people´s generosity.
Bible Ministry –The Word is getting out
We need to say a very special Thank You again to Gateway Baptist Church for the special offering towards the distribution of Bibles. The Lord´s provision is never a day too late—His timing is perfect.
Yours fellow servants in Brazil,
Harold, Lílian, Raphael and Danielle
