Dear Brothers and Sisters,

Hope all is well with your family and churches. We are all doing well—praise the Lord. This month we had a wonderful experience with our church. We have been doing training and encouraging for the work and ministries in the church. We are trying to get more and more of the members involved. October 12th is Children’s Day here in Brazil. So, we planned a special day for them. It was great to see the members get involved. We had special kids’ music, puppets, games, and a trampoline outside for them. Also, we had hotdogs, popcorn and popsicles. Everyone had fun. We brought the kids from the village of Ubim. There was around 55 that came.

Pray for the village of Ubim as we are working to reach more adults. We have a couple that lives near that are helping us there. It has been wonderful having them. We are already planning to new places to have pizza day. Both of these places have to be done while the water is low. Because when the water is high there is no access to the villages. Now that the water is low it is good fishing time. We take advantage of the time and take different people to spend time with them. Through this we have been working with 2 that have problems with drugs. Today I took the drug dealer that lives near us. I got to talk to talk to him. I asked him not to sell drugs to the mother of the kids that lives here with us. Also, we asked if we could take his daughter to Sunday School. He said we could take her. Please pray for them and for us as we reach out to help them and to show them God’s love and salvation.

Love in Christ,
Odali and Kathy
