Praising God for His Protection; Getting Ready for Tapioca Festival

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,

We pray all is well with each of you. We are all well and praising God for His love and protection. We certainly saw God’s protection in our son Jonas’ life. He was helping a friend from church get his bulldozers out of the hole and they put a rope around a palm tree that we have here that is very strong. All of a sudden, they heard a snap. The tree was falling. It missed Jonas’ head and back and landed near his hips and got stopped by a bunch of dirt which kept the tree from falling in full strength on our son. Praise the Lord! No broken bones!!!! He has to rest for 30 to 60 days.

We had a special day for Children’s Day. We spent the day at the camp. Everyone had a great time. We had a service and games and swimming time—a great time for families to be together. We had people from the Indian tribe to come for one of our special events for the first time. They are from the community of Ubim. More and more of them are coming each week to the mission point.

This month we are already getting ready for our tapioca festival. Tapioca is a typical food here and is round like pancake. Then you fill it with different flavors and fold it. We are making 10 different flavors. We have the festivals for outreach to bring people to visit our church and present the gospel. Everything is free. When we invite people, they can’t believe it’s free. Also, we like to have these kinds of programs to get our members involved in reaching out to our communities.

We thank each of you for your prayers and support.

We are praying and looking for a new car. We are on the road a lot. Pray that God well lead us to the right deal. God bless each of you.
