Reaching Out to Nearby Communities

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,

Thank God for each one of you that are part of this ministry here in the Amazon. The ministry would be impossible without your prayers and support. God bless each one of you and your church. I want to thank for you prayers for my health. I am feeling better. I’m doing a check-up to see if everything is ok. So far all is well. Appreciate your prayers.

We have had several activities this month. There is a school here next to us and we want to reach out to them. This month we had the students to come to the camp and had an all-day activity for them. The principal was very thankful and we had a great time with them. At the mission at Ubim we had a special day and the kids received the T-shirts that were financed by a dear friend through BFM. The kids loved the T-shirts. Please pray for this ministry as Kathy is training a new team. Since that is where Kathy works and she trains the teams, she takes advantage and they work with her until needed in a different place.

With the project reaching out to communities around us we have had two services already. One in the community of Lago do Limao (Lemon Lake) and Caldeirao. This is good for two reasons: one, it gets the church involved, and second, reaching lost souls. There are so many communities and they are scattered everywhere.

Pray that God will direct us in the best way to reach these people. Along with these plans we also are preparing more members to do witnessing, others for the music, and others for visitation. Pray with us that God will work in the hearts of the members to see the need.

The work In Iranduba is coming along well. The pastor that is helping us there has started a Bible Study in a home near the church. This has been good. Also, the work with the kids on Saturday afternoon is growing. We had 15 chairs and today in the mother church we asked who would like to buy a chair. We had donations to buy 15 more chairs. If you would like to donate to buy more chairs the cost $8.00 each. You can make a note: “Chairs for Iranduba”.

Thanks to all of you for your love, prayers and support.
Odali and Kathy
