FGM Team Celebrates Father’s Day in Brazil

Today, Aug 8, is Father’s Day in Brazil. We (Dan Wickert & David Selvey) enjoyed a special time with the congregation of the Faith Baptist Church of San Jose dos Campos in Brazil. David preached on unity from Romans 14 and Dan taught on the benefits of illness. In between the two sessions there was a special 45 minute breakfast fellowship in honor of Father’s Day.

During the fellowship time God gave me, David, the opportunity to converse with Carlos. Carlos’ wife and children are Christians but he says he does not believe in God. He likes the Christian way of living because it is “a good way to live.” Carlos allowed me to have a conversation of about 10 minutes with him as I challenged him to consider several questions. As we returned to the service, he agreed to think about the questions I posed to him. Pray for Carlos that God might reveal Himself to him.

Tonight we worshipped with a church near our hotel, Templo Batista Biblico. David preached on Unity in the Church from Romans 14. We had a wonderful time of worship and fellowship. The music was lively and the people were actively engaged with the preaching. The service lasted about 2 hours. We got back to our hotel about 9:40pm. Tomorrow we drive to Aguas de Lindoia,about 3 hours away.
