Last night I spoke to the young adults group at Ministerio Evangelico Meshareth in Praia Grande. Leandro is one of the leaders of the "jovens" (young adults) group in the church, and we know him from our project in the schools. He is a teacher in a municipal school in Praia Grande, and he has helped us recently as an interpreter in one of the schools we spoke in several weeks ago. He is a blessing to us, as he is very enthusiastic to help us to reach students & teachers for Jesus, and he is a good interpreter, and he has recommended us to other schools in Praia Grande - which should help open more doors for us to share Jesus in these schools. Last night Leandro helped as my interpreter.
The service started 30 minutes late, which is fairly common here in Brazil. The theme for the night was American night, since we are American missionaries. There were many more people who came than just the young adult group of the church, and there we a good crowd in the service. I spoke about God's call and his mission to reach and save lost people, and how He calls all of us to join Him in His redemptive Kingdom work. God spoke to many hearts, and they received the message enthusiastically. We also shared the Gospel and 1 young man received Christ and committed his life to Him.
