Valdeci answered the call of God 3 years ago and turned from a life of drinking. He started with, in his words, “A commitment with God to do whatever was needed”. This entailed working around the church, cutting the grass with a machete, fixing the leaky roof, knocking down the continual termite trails, and always being there early to start church services.
He was ordained 1 1/2 years ago as a deacon and he continued to do this work without any help from others. I lifted him up to a teaching position in the church and saw his passion for the lost, his passion to have the others experience Jesus like he had.
Last year, while praying, he felt called to head up the preaching in Aldeia Nova. He is now leading a new church there, Calvario Aldeia Nova! When he is not preaching there, he visits some of the other neighboring villages with a small team, evangelizing, teaching the bible and edifying those who are seeking for answers in a dark world.
Please consider supporting him. We are currently supporting him $50 U.S.D. a month which comes out of our own support. If you do, please let us know so that we can properly appropriate those resources.
God bless you and don’t forget to pray!
