We headed out in the morning to City of God to complete the painting of the worship center walls which included the scripture verse from Luke 4:18-19 and a map of the world on the main wall. A few of our team members helped Pastor Dirceu lead groups of Bethel BSSM students around City of God for door to door ministry.
In the evening, most of the team, went to a Samba school to join with the 80 Bethel BSSM students from Redding California, who were praying for people. As we walked back to our mission house later that night we gave out hot dogs to residents near there and in Heliopolis. A couple of team members joined Pastor Bill was welcomed to preach Thursday evening at Vida Viva church in Sao Paulo. Many Brazilians were touched deeply as he shared about the seven hundred names and titles of God, and how our loving Father desires for us to draw near to Him with every need in our heart and lives. Hungry hearts cried out as he shared his powerful testimony of being healed from malaria, and how the enemy’s power has been broken. Visa Viva’s worship team joined in as Pastor Bill sang “The Enemy is Done” and prophetically prayed and worshipped. We are believing that many lives were touched by the power and presence of God.
