"Whoever watches the wind will not plant; whoever looks at the clouds will not reap. "
"Sow your seed in the morning, and at evening let not your hands be idle, for you do not know which will succeed, whether this or that, or whether both will do equally well." Ecclesiastes 11:4,6
Dear Friends and Brethren in Christ: Grace and peace in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Hope you're all in good health, we are all well. Like the passage above says we are here planting the word of God, believing that we will see the rewards of our hard work. Work at the prison has been a blessing. Many young people have accepted Christ as their Saviour at the Friday service at the PIC (Criminal Investigation Police). Also the prison of Cabeca de Velho where several inmates converted and have been in discipleship and God has really used them. Some have even preached at the service. For us that is truly a gratifying. As well as the services in prison we have been doing some activities like sewing, mechanics, welding, and carpentry but the truth is that everything is running with some difficulty for lack of financial resources so we're doing the best we can we what we have. We recently made a bread oven and hope to get money to buy the ingredients to start making bread.
On Saturdays afternoon we are working with the youth of our church and it has been a very good time, where we have taught them the Word. We have now started rehearsing a Christmas play. The youth is very excited because this will be their first play. We also have Sunday schools and it's been good seeing how the church is growing in God's Word.
Twice a week we are helping at the project Kukula Pabozi, with the orphan children. We've taught them songs and Bible stories and we have also been teaching them about personal hygiene. This week we cut and washed their hair and bandaged their head wounds. It's so amazing to see that God has been blessing our work in every way.
I was a little sad because this month I was unable to teach any seminary because our car broke. I'm not sure if the problem is in the motor or in turbocharged direct injection but I have taken the car to different mechanics and they haven't been able to figure out what is the problem. Other than this everything has been going great and that is all thanks to you, because you believed in us and have been contributing for this ministry to keep moving forward. Thank you so very much for your trust and love.
