MISSIONS - Update from our Brother Ricardo:
Dear Brothers and Sisters,
This last two months have been really busy for me as I have been working towards several projects at the same time. We are being blessed by the LST group (Lets start Talking.) who has been helping us with classes in English as a way to evangelize people who speak some English. More than 40 people total are participating in this program.
I also started teaching a Basic English class every Monday, Tuesday and Thursday at Palmeiras Church. We have at least 30 people participating in these classes.
We have also been working hard getting the camp ready for the campaign we will have from the 14-21 of July with the group coming from Florence – Alabama.
Please keep us in your prayers as we become all things to all men so we can win some for Christ.
