Sara in Portugal

Sara in a Church in Portugal. She was in Portugal for about 10 days, and now she is in Norway right now visiting her fiances family for the first time. Our first official international outreach from School of the Bible - Fortaleza Brazil! During there time there she was able to build some new relationships with the YWAM ministry there.
Perhaps someday we can see a School of the Bible in Portugal. What a strategic place it would be. But lets keep praying and seeing the work of missions happen and the lost reached. Lets see where the Lord takes us. Posted by Picasa

Outreach Update

Well we have a few surprises concerning our global outreach for School of the Bible.  Some of the locations didn't work out.  We gave it a good battle, but money just didn't come in on time for everybody.  Cuba isn't happening.  We sent only one student to Portugal/Norway. 
One praise report we can give glory to the Lord Jesus.  The team traveling to Mozambique is in South Africa right now.  They will be staying there for a number of day and then traveling to their final location.  Five Brazilians on one team!  Praise the Lord.  They are packed up full of study bibles for the Pastors there, and many other study materials for the people in Mozambique.
One of the students we sent to Curitiba in the south of Brazil.  Their she is going to be doing some teaching and promoting School of the Bible at the YWAM bases there.
The rest of the students we had to send home to get their financial situations better situated. I guess four out of 10 students on outreach isn't a bad number, considering three of them are out of Brazil on their outreaches.  The challenges for missionaries here is very big to go outside the country.  Although these people need to become missionaries in foreign lands because I think they are passionate for God and that people will listen to them. 
Please pray for the students:  Sara - Portugal/Norway, Telma - Curitiba, Tiago/Denise - Mozambique.

Ok, well we can have some highlights from this year. Here I am teaching greek. Well if your asking for an experience, how about teaching greek in your second language? Well it was hard at times. Many time I would be asking how the portuguese grammar would work, so I could explain. Also I had to prepare lessons with portuguese speakers help including students. Well, if you want to learn a second language better, teach another language in that second language! You'll learn your grammar!

Graduation for School of the Bible - Fortaleza Brazil

We finally made it to the end of the School of the Bible. Wow! What a blessing from the Lord have these students been. We are so blessed with their presence and are so sad to see them go. But happily they are going on to the calling God has for their lives. Some are returning to work with us in the School. So that is a huge blessing! Posted by Picasa
