Getting Ready for Camp; Painting in Ubim

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 Supporters,

We have had a great beginning of year and hope you have also. This month we have been busy with getting the camp ready to be used and painting the church in the community of Ubim. Also trying to get the water connected. The community only has an artisan well that everyone uses.

Last month we had a pastor visit whom I have known since I was saved. He was looking for a new place to work and came to visit our work. He was excited and sent his wife to meet us and see the work. His wife and Kathy hit it off. The really enjoyed each other. We are excited about having a couple to help in the work. Pray for them: Pastor Amauri and Miriam. They have 3 kids.

We have had lots of problems at the camp. In March there will be camp, and the tractor broke and several light posts need changing due to so much rain. And to top it off, the water pump went out. Working hard to get things fixed.

We now have two teens living with us from the community of Ubim. Their fathers are involved in drugs and they were being strongly influenced the wrong way. Pray for them. Their names are Eduardo and Fabio.

Kathy is in process of putting together a new group for training to work with kids’ ministry. They are really excited about helping.

We have a need to buy tables to use in the Ubim mission—tables we can use, then stack up so they don’t take up too much room. They cost $30.00. If you would like to help, make a donation to “Tables for Ubim Missions.” We would like to have 10. We appreciate any help. (Click here to donate now. Type Tables for Ubim Missions in the memo line.) God bless each of you. We thank you for your prayers and support.

Love in Christ,
Odali & Kathy Barros
