“The Light shines in the darkness” – John 1:5

This week on the mission field Pastor Paulo spent another weekend at the church in the community of 13 de Febrero working with leaders and the small congregation.  Paulo is working to develop strong relationships with the church leaders through focused, small group settings.  In this past week’s session, Paulo spoke to them about the basics of conducting a church service, skills that are in great need.  That evening, Friday, Paulo spoke to a small group of believers on their calling to be salt and light to the world (Matthew 5).  Pray that this small group of believers will see God’s purpose for their lives in that community and begin to spread that light from rooftop to rooftop!

Paulo and the leaders also spent time cleaning the church grounds in preparation for the teaching and preaching sessions, since several of them were conducted outdoors.  In the midst of this Paulo had an opportunity to share the Gospel with a young boy, Flavio.  Pray that the seeds of hope planted in his life will take root and grow!  Later, while visiting door to door with local families, Paulo met up with Antonio and his wife.  After a time of discussion, God brought conviction and Antonio and his wife decided to rededicate their lives to the Lord, pray that they will begin to attend church on a regular basis.

On Saturday night Paulo conducted a Bible study with the congregation on the topic of SAVED, where he shared about salvation and the believer’s security in that salvation.

Another excellent week sharing the Word of the Lord in this community! Think about it, just a month ago there were only a few people meeting on Sunday, now 30+ plus the Sunday school lessons!!  Praise Jesus!  And while we are a great distance away from seeing a self-governing, self-propagating, and self-sustaining church, we are praying in faith that we will indeed see it one day! Please join us in praying that the Lord will bless this for His glory in that community, that Paulo and the leaders will be protected from the attacks of the enemy, and that the Word of God will become transformative amongst that community! 

Please, prayerfully consider joining us with financial support for Pastor Paulo.  It is costing us around $60 US dollars to send Paulo out to the community for the weekend.  This cost includes transportation to and from, food, housing, materials  and some additional funds for him.  Please consider donating to offset this cost on-line at   http://theanswerisloveproject.com/support/ or by sending a check to:
