Blessed with a New Helper 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 Brothers and Sisters,

Hope each of you have had a wonderful, blessed month. We have had a wonderful month. Kathy is really happy and feeling blessed. One of the ladies of the church who moved near us now is helping her with the ministry in Ubim. She is really great with preschool-aged kids and is really dedicated in what she does. Pray that God will continue blessing her as she is preparing some others to help.

On Carnival day this year we went to the friend of ours who has a farm on an island. We hadn’t been there for quite a while. We had planned on using our camp that we were making but we didn’t get the things done enough to be able to be used. So, we went across the river. He has a boat and came to get us. We had about 40-50 who went with us, and we had a wonderful time.

The camp is coming along well. We have two buildings under roof and are working on the third building. What we would like to do is to get the creek where it could be used to swim. That’s what people enjoy doing with the hot weather here. We also want to fix the field to play volleyball and soccer. Very soon, we will be able to be able to use it more often since it’s really close to where we are and to where everybody else is from the church in the neighborhood. So, the Lord willing, pretty soon we will be able to use it more often just to have special activities for the church families and youth. Since it’s rainy season right now there are things we can’t do all the time. But as we can get things done the sun comes out, we’re working on different projects. So, we hope that soon we’ll be able to do more things and finish the projects.

Thank you for your support and your prayers and pray that we’ll be able to do more things and finish the projects we have started.

Thanks for your prayers and support.

Love in Christ,
Odali and Kathy Barros
