Today Redemption Baptist Church spent the day together out in the country, away from the city and all the normal busyness that fills our days. We were all looking forward to this time of bonding between the three new families that have started coming to our church and our original group.
The kids enjoyed playing the the little creek, swimming in the pool, hiking the trails and just playing with friends, both old & new.
Of course we grilled some awesome Brazilian beef!
Rook, Uno, volleyball, football, hiking... We all had great time just being together.
After lunch we had a time in the Word and discussed what is Biblical communion/fellowship. It was neat to hear what others are learning and being challenged by in the Word.
We are so thankful for how God is working and building His church here in Sao Jose. In addition to our newer converts, God has recently brought some older believers to our fellowship. We are thoroughly enjoying the new friendships and biblical discussions. We are encouraged by their hunger for the Word and excitement about what they are learning through expositional preaching.
We were so thankful to have renewed friendship with old friends and are still praying that God will continue to bring them to Salvation. Will you pray that God will continue to build His church and open peoples eyes to the Glories of His Gospel?
