Brazil May 26

Brazil May 26

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 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.

The team will minister in McCarren Park each afternoon. Pray that the team is empowered and bold as they engage in conversations and share their stories. Also pray that God speaks through the team members and that the team is obedient to follow God’s leading.

Pray for the team this evening, as they will have the chance to see some sights in Manhattan. Pray that the team will be sensitive and responsive to witness even as we travel around New York.
