Festival Held to Reach Out to New People

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,

Hope all is well with each of you. We are all doing well and being blessed by our Lord.

The works are doing well and reaching out to bring new people to the churches. This month we had our festival of typical foods. The purpose of the festivals is to bring people who are not saved to know our church. We had a wonderful festival. The members got really involved and things went well. We had around 350 people who came. We had a praise time and then a sketch with the plan of salvation.

The Venezuelan couple that the husband is pastor has been of great help with the mission of Iranduba.

The work with the camp is coming along. We had a fellowship with a group of about 35 pastors to share our plans. We have had several contacts. We want to make it a place that small churches as well as large churches can have access. We also want to have special camps to reach different age groups through sports, seminars and training. Pray that God will lead us each step of the way.

Our purpose in our ministry is especially to reach out to the lost to tell them about the Lord Jesus. But also, we want to help others to grow and serve the Lord in their daily life.

Pray that God will direct us each step of the way and that lives will be reached.

Thanks to each of you for your love and support. God bless you.

Also continue to pray for God to provide a car for us that Kathy can use that holds 6 or 7 passengers.

Love in Christ,
Odali & Kathy
