ECUADOR - THE GLORY OF GOD

We teamed up with the Emmanuel Bible Baptist church from Tandapi. When we were giving instructions, about what to do when the people came to the front to receive Christ, one member said “Nobody will come forward. This town is hard-hearted”.

BRAZIL

Because we have a great opportunity in the plazas, cities, and schools, here in Brazil, the harvest is very big. We have ministry at the schools because there is a big problem with drug use. At one of our meetings in the schools, we performed a drama about drugs and shared a message. After the programme two teachers came to us and told us that they received Jesus. more >>
