Melissa, Josiah, Veronica, Benjamin and I just arrived back from another amazing trip! We were in the Village for 7 days. This was the second trip as a family.
I, Brad, taught through Genesis 7 and 8 on this trip. There were many people who were in the city or on their farms working, but yet we still had 20 people at each service. It is great to hear the responses of the people as this is their first time being taught verse by verse through Genesis. I also taught two different families in our house as they had missed the actual study the night before since they had been out working at their farm.
Melissa held a women’s study on Monday afternoon. It was a sweet time of fellowship, singing songs, learning new ones, and studying the word of God.
The people are just about done working in their farms for this year. They have big crops of Mantioc and fruit trees. This Mantioc takes a lot of time and energy and is used to produce Farinha, their staple food.
The door is now opening for a possible bible study to start in the neighboring village. Please keep this in your prayers, as I would like to start this with one of the leaders of our village, and perhaps he could keep it going when I am not there.
My next trip will be in November, and I plan to stay for 3 weeks. Josiah may go with me. We will continue our Genesis studies, hopefully getting up to Genesis chapter 20. I will also get the porch rebuilt on the house now that we have all the wood we need. We will put off rebuilding the bathroom until the next dry season which is in July/August of 2015. Please pray for the people and the work we are accomplishing here.
