A Visit from Family

Odali and Kathy Barros served the Lord in Sao Paulo, Brazil together from 1987-2013. In late 2013, they transitioned to Manaus in Northern Brazil to start sharing the Gospel and planting churches in villages along the river.

Dear Brothers and Sister,

It’s hard to believe that a new year has begun. With so many changes we have had to make in our way of living and ministering, we are thankful to God for His protection in our family and those around us in the churches. Things had gotten better but after Christmas and New Year’s, things have gotten bad again. The cities have closed down most of the stores and malls. They only allowed what are major necessities to be open. So once again we are taking precautions with the services.

God has given us the opportunity to have our son Joshua Odali here with his family. Since we live in the middle of the jungle the grandkids can have fun even though everything is closed in town. We have had a wonderful time together. 

One of the things that we have started helping with small communities that are in the middle of the jungle is making wells. Now a friend of our son has joined in this ministry. He donated money to drill a well. The cost of a well is $3,000, which includes the labor, the materials, and the pump. He will be coming to help. There are many communities that have no running water. So, this is a great opportunity to reach out to them with drinking water and Living Water. If anyone would like to help, make the donation to “well drilling”.

We want to thank each one of you for your constant prayers and your faithful support.

Please continue to pray for us as we deal with the difficult moments, that God will give us wisdom to work through this time.

Love in Christ,
Odali and Kathy Barros
