Upcoming Ministries

This Sunday at the Ebenezer congregation we will be presenting a study in the life of Noah, catching the wave--so to speak--of popular culture. It appears there will be several visitors on that day

Then on Monday I will be giving a lecture (in English) on the resurrection at our local university.

In addition to these events, this weekend will also include leadership training (Saturday morning), a puppetry seminary (Saturday afternoon), speaking at the inauguration of a new congregation (Saturday night), and Sunday School (Sunday morning).

Any prayers gratefully accepted!

Brazilian Football

And yes, I mean that kind of football. This is a great ad for a *real* football team in the state of Bahia.

Carnaval Retreat, 2014

One of the biggest events for the Ebenezer Congregation over the last few weeks was the planning and execution of our very first Carnaval Retreat.

Here are some pictures:

During the week we were blessed with the presence of Lucas, son of one of our members. Lucas has been blessed with tremendous musical talent. In this video, he plays "Because He Lives" (accompanied on the bass by his brother-in-law).

The BMMB Team

In our last post we mentioned the divisions of the BMMB (Baptist Mid Missions of Brazil) field, and how each field has their own annual conferences. There is also an annual "All-Brazil" meeting.

Two things made this year's conference extra-special: 1) The fact that we were able to host it right here in São Luís, and 2) our speakr, Pastor Rollin Howard (accompanied by his wife Susan), from Tuscarora Baptist Church.

Yours truly taking the missionaries on a bus tour of São Luís.

Hosting the conference in São Luís for the first time was a special privilege. We were able to show them what God is doing here in Maranhão, and our believers were able to get to know our missionary colleagues.
