Harold and Lílian Gilmer : May 2024 Prayer Letter

Harold and Lilian Gilmer – South America Director, Church Planter and Bible Translation in São Paulo, Brazi

Dear Brethren:
“Trust in the LORD, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed” (Psalm 7:3).

Time to Celebrate!

We celebrated our Congregation´s seventh anniversary, with a wonderful Conference. Praise the Lord, one
young man trusted Christ.

Things are progressing at the new location, but we were not able to move yet. The Lord is providing the funding for this new location through a member of our Church Planting Team. Praise His Name! Please pray with us that we will be able to make the move by July.


Ministerial needs: Our Bible donation fund is once again dried up (because it was all given away) and the need for more Bibles at this time is urgent! The state of Rio Grande do Sul was drowned in recent flooding, with entire cities being placed underwater. There is an outpouring of help with clothes, water, and food, which will take care of temporal needs, but the Real Need is for the Word of God! We are preparing a special printing of 10,000 compact paperback Bibles thinking of the these affected areas. The cost (with shipping) for these Bibles is $2.40 per copy. Praise the Lord, an offering for 1,510 Bibles was already received! Please consider helping with this urgent need. Please specify that your offering is for Bibles.

Personal needs: Shortly before returning to Brazil, while completing seminary, I read this passage: “Trust in the LORD, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed” (Psalm 37:3). After
twenty-three years on the field, we are amazed at the Lord´s provision. We never did proper deputation because of the great demand of our presence in Brazil, and yet we are clothed and fed. We do need the remainder of our support, which is currently at 66%. Inflation is real on the field, as well. We were just informed that our health insurance is going to be increased by 19,2 % next month. Please do pray with us for our monthly support.

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