Missions Moment – Brazil

Posted in: Missions


Dear Friends,

I hope you are having a wonderful Christmas time with your families and friends.  May we all be reminded each day during this holiday season that Jesus is the one who is with us, and in us, and through us shows His love to others.

I have been reminded in my daily journey – learning  how to be patient, to trust and wait on Him, knowing that he is in control of everything.  I don’t need to be afraid because Jesus is the reason!

“And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night.  An Angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. But the angel said to them, “ Do not be afraid. I bring you good news  of great joy that will be for all people . Today  in the town of David  a Savior  has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord .”

He is the reason for my joy and my life, and it has been an honor and privilege to be called by Him to serve; doing ministry  and watching how he has changed lives and how he brings joy to others.

Helena is an example of a changed life. She is married and has two kids.  Many years ago she was on drugs, and through her children who came to Restoration Ministries activities (Agitas ) she came to know Christ. She is now four years clean from drugs and got baptized this past October. Praise the Lord!

We had  the kids Christmas program in the communities we work with, and it has been a joyful time to see the happiness on their faces. For many of them, the gift that they are getting through RM will be the only gifts they receive for Christmas.
