More Team Testimonies

Here's another quote from one of our recent American volunteer team members:

"I really don't know where to start. So I'll just start throwing it out there. I pray to God everyday to thank Him for allowing Lynn and I to have experienced what we experienced in Brazil. I thank our church for the emphasis they put on doing mission work at home and throughout the world. I deeply appreciate what Chuck and Herb do in the field of evangelism and their dedication. But, I have to say that my appreciation of what you do and your family, the sacrifices you all make on a daily basis, was not truly appreciated or realized. This trip was an eye opener for Lynn and I. Even though we are know about these things, we were somewhat ignorant. I am sure that Jesus smiles and is pleased every time he thinks about your family and the other missionaries that are dedicated to spreading His word. I just can not express our gratitude for the 'translator's' and how comfortable and welcome they made us feel. Although I used the word translators, I think that it no longer speaks about who they are and what they meant to us. I am sure I speak for our group in that even in the short time span we had together that we have just expanded our families. One thing about most families is that they come without you choosing who will be in them. This is not the case here. There isn't one I would not be proud of to have as a member of my family." God Bless, Fred

Volunteer Team Testimony

Here is the testimony of one of the members of our recent volunteer team:

"I had the privilege of visiting Eroni and Lourdes. Our team shared the gospel and they both prayed to receive Christ as their Lord and Savior. After praying to receive Christ they told the team that today they received Christ because they realized the importance of what the team shared with them. They realized it because we had come all the way from America to share Jesus with them and we did not ask them for anything, nor did we want anything from them, but to serve and grow in Jesus. They hugged the team and said we could come back anytime we wanted to!"
