Pray for the riverfront community of Santa Quitéria. This Quilombola village has 75-80 homes and is close to several other villages also without evangelical churches. Several spiritual barriers exist to the advance of the Gospel here. Historically, the people’s worldview has been a complicated mixture of rainforest legends, Macumba (a syncretistic belief system resulting from west African religions being mixed with folk Catholicism), & folk Catholicism. Pray that the light of the Gospel will overcome the confusion of darkness. Pray that God will open their eyes (2 Cor. 4:4).
Pray for safe travels to the Quilombola community of Santa Quitéria. Pray for the leader of this community, Clodoaldo, who will be hosting most of the team in his home. Pray that he & his family will come to know Christ.
Please pray for quick relational connections with our team of translators who will be traveling with us today: Eline, Flávio, João, Lago, Nilda, & Vanja.
Pray that all goes smoothly as the team has a tricky connection to make in São Paulo this morning at 9:20AM (Corbin time). Pray specifically that all goes smoothly with the customs and screening process.
Spend special time in prayer today for Vanja Maria Terra da Silva, a close Brazilian friend of Pastor Rob’s family, who is coordinating many of the logistics for the team’s arrival & transportation in Belém. She is a vital partner.
May 23, 2017: Travel Day – Pray for endurance, patience, & protection as the team begins the long trek to Belém do Pará. Our flight leaves Lexington at 6:30PM. If all goes to schedule (as you’re praying it will) we will arrive in Belém at 1:15PM on Wed.
