What a blessing worshiping with this church plant in Rio. I am so thankful to the Lord for the opportunity to serve in Brazil. I am overwhelmed by His presence and His power.
How sweet the sound is when you walk into a international church and you hear the music of a song you recognize. In a Brazilian speaking church we were at home because the people made us feel that way. As they sang praises to our Lord the words were interpreted for me. I loved the message in the songs. As they sang "Victory in Jesus" in Portuguese we were singing in English. I had to pause for just a moment and listen to the two languages sing about the victory Jesus brings to our lives. It just couldn't have been much better.
We had numerous young people who sat between us to translate the pastor's message for us. He reminded us that we are not to be off this world.. As children of God we are set apart. We are to be the light to the dark world. Please, continue to pray for us as we let our light shine during the 2016 Summer Games.
As is the custom of our team, we attended worship services of local churches.One group went to Primeira Igreja Batista de Copacabana. Another group attended Comunidade Batista Oceanica.
Time spent at the USA House grants us the opportunity to minister to families of the Olympians, Olympians and other dignitaries visiting the USA House. Steve was honored to meet 1996 gold medalist Shannon Miller.

Doug and Phillip used every tool in their possession as they shared with this Brazilian. They started with their "Jesus Pin," moved to a tract explaining the colors of the pin in Portuguese. and finished using both tools to explain how much God loves us.
