Training Teens to Work in Ministry

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 Sisters,

First of all, we want to thank God for the opportunity to serve Him and second thank God for each one of you that serve Him through your giving and prayers. Missions is a joint effort. May God continue blessing and guiding each one of us!

Through the special gifts that several have given, we have been able to accomplish several things at the mission points.

We are working with a specific purpose to get more people from the church involved in getting the gospel out in the communities around us. Pray that God will work in the hearts of the members to see the need to get the gospel out.

There are so many kids and teens in this area. We work at reaching them because the drugs are all around us. We had a special day for the kids from the mother church Pedras Vivas. At the mission in Ubim the drug people are right next door. If we don’t help them understand how much God loves them the money that comes from the junk becomes attractive. Kathy is getting ready to start training a new group of teenagers to work in different areas in church. We have several that have started in the music ministry. Our desire is to prepare as many as possible so they can help as we reach out to the communities around us.

Some people have asked if we have any projects. We do have several and some people have already helped, praise God!

The community of Ubim does not have running water. So, we plan on drilling a well. We have the equipment, so we only need the pipes and the pump which cost $2,000. For the insides, paint and tile, and that costs $1,800. On the outside we would like to concrete the area so it can be used more. That will cost $2,000. Any help is very much appreciated.

Thanks to all you supporters! May God richly bless each of you.

Love in Christ our Lord,
Odali and Kathy
