Saturday night we attended the first meeting of about 16 of the key leaders in biblical counseling in Brazil. A second meeting is scheduled for Oct 16. The meeting was productive, good and encouraging. Pray for the biblical counseling leadership of Brazil as they seek to increase the momentum of the movement for the glory of God.
We had a wonderful time in the church where Sacha and Ana minister in San Jose dos Campos, Brazil. Steve taught a two hour ABF class from Matthew 5:13-16 regarding the responsibility of believers to reach out into the community and live in such a way that we are salt and light in the world. Afterward, we enjoyed the wonderful experience of eating at a churrascaria, a Brazilian barbecue place. The food was great and we enjoyed a wonderful time of fellowship with dozens of the church family.
Sacha took us to the airport Sunday evening so we could catch our overnight flight to JFK. We arrived in JFK about 5:30am, went through customs and are now scheduled to depart at 8:45 arriving in Indianapolis around 10:30am, so we should be home around noon. We appreciate all your prayers for us while we have been gone.
