God is Moving in Açutuba

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 friends and supporters,

What a month of seeing God work in many ways! He is our strength in time of sorrow and our strength in time of much work. Thanks for your prayers for my wife and her family in the passing of her mother Alta.

So much going on and God at work in the ministry.

The building in the community of Ubim is coming along. The children are so excited about the building. The other day Kathy and I went to see the construction and while we were there, the kids were singing, “Our church is almost ready!”  Very exciting!

The Açutuba Community

The Ubim Building

We have services in another community called Açutuba. We have been going there for about a year now. When we started, several people from the church were going. As time went on, most every one stopped. Last week, the lady where we have the service called and asked if we could go to a lady’s house that was having trouble with rearing things. So we went. There were 10 visitors at the house where we went. I showed them that our spiritual house could not be empty, how to receive Christ as Savior. The service was great but the result has been wonderful. The lady called and asked if this week she could bring 20 visitors, because all her children and their kids want to come. Well, we had 40 people there! What a service. Pray for them, they are all catholics. As we were there, the lady said, “Oh, my son has a piece of land he separated to give to some church.” Well who knows that might be for our ministry.

When Kathy and I started our ministry right after we were married we worked with the deaf and planned on building a camp to work with them. We started and then God sent us to other places. Well now we are back to where we started in Manaus, and 3 weeks ago, the camp that we left with Tabernacle Church was turned over to us to care for and direct. We are excited! We are praying that God will direct us each day in how to use the place more and more for the ministry. Thanks for your prayers and support.

In Christ,
Odali & Kathy
