Yesterday for Brasil

We had an amazing time of worship together with our house church family yesterday.

We had a group of people talking about the protesting that is happening in our country and what we, as Christians, need to be doing in the middle of everything.

We studied God's word, prayed for our country and our leaders and prayed for each other.

It was so encouraging.

As I type this there is another organized demonstration going on in downtown Porto Alegre. It's raining and cold and yet there are thousands protesting.

Something is happening in our country and we want to see God have the victory through it all. We want to see His people lead this country. I confess it is hard to see change like that with my physical eyes but I bet no one who knew Saul would ever have believed that He could be used by God in the way that God used him.

Saul became Paul and did amazing things for God. God can do the same thing with our leaders. That's what we want for Brasil. Strong Christian leaders who lead with humility and follow God's will.

We ask that you join us in prayer for Brasil at this important time in our country's history.
