September 6 Prayer Request for the Gáucho People

Pray for the outreach to the large population of German heritage in the state of Rio Grande do Sul. Working with this group is a special challenge because the dialects are so different and often the people are in very small communities. Pray for Daniel and Teresa Allen and their sons Joseph and John as they seek for innovative means to reach the people and plant simple churches in the communities.

That's true german gauchos are really hard to reach they are very closed and the language is very important to them. So I think the strategy of learning german dialect besides learning portuguese is very clever. German gauchos are really prejudice and consider themselves better than the "brazilians" because of that I think americans have more influence in them than their own people brazilians.
