Dear Friends,

Since December, January and February are the summer months in Brazil, the public schools are closed most of that time. The main avenue that Projeto Vida has of taking the gospel to the unreached population in the country is in the public schools, so during these months, our teams try to come up with other creative ways to share the gospel with lost folks. Our Missions Training Center did that this summer by taking the 2 teams of volunteers to some physical rehabilitation centers, daycare centers and recreational events on the beaches. They were a huge blessing to several rehab centers and were able to bring both immediate and eternal hope to many of the patients. During the 3 month period, there were over 1500 individuals who heard the Gospel presented through testimonies, skits, preaching and one-on-one evangelism. Of these 1500, there were 73 adults and 115 youth who accepted Christ as their Lord and Savior!

The evangelistic outreach on the beaches was especially challenging, yet at the same time, fruitful. While many of the patrons of the beachside bars and dance clubs ridiculed the young evangelists, there were also a good number of them who God touched through the testimonies and conversations of the bold witnesses of Christ. Several of our workers are former drug and alcohol abusers and God used them to make a connection that opened hearts to hear the Word. One young lady was at the beach on vacation, but upon seeing the open-air skits portraying the gospel, she was deeply touched by the message that Christ loves her. She had been exposed to the gospel as a child, but had not embraced it. Now, as an adult, she recognized her need for a Savior and surrendered her life to Jesus.

This is the first of 4 Missions Seminars that Projeto Vida will host this year, the Lord willing. There were 13 volunteer participants from other states participating and we hope that they will either return as long-term participants or stay connected as supportive prayer partners. We know they will be changed by their time as volunteers for the good of Christ’s kingdom.

Thank you for your faithful prayers and support.
