Important Meeting on Saturday

For all of you who have been following the continuing saga of our church plants in São Leopoldo, you know that we have had some bumps in the road with the pastor of the mother church. He has now meet with most all of the members of the church planting team individually and it appears that most of the relational issues are ironed out.

Tomorrow (Saturday, December 2), our core church planting team will meet with him as a group in an attempt to better define the relationship between the church plants and the mother church. This is a crucial meeting for the future of the work.

Please pray that:
1. The Holy Spirit will fill the hearts and minds of each one present and that He will guide the meeting without being quenched or grieved in any way.
2. That God's will for the future of the work will be evident, and that nobody's personal opinion will interfere
3. That all will exhibit the fruit of the Spirit in the meeting.
4. That Alexandre (who was ordained by the mother church last Saturday) will step to the front and truly take the reins of the work and lead it on to be all that God wants it to be.
5. That both during and after the meeting, the body of Christ would be unified and there would be no division or hard feelings that Satan could exploit.

This is a make or break meeting - pray that God will make it into something great!

Thanking you for your prayers,
Jeff
