The 15th of May

     Yes, I know it is not May 15, and no this is not a national holiday. However this was the name of the neighborhood that we went to tonight to visit Maranatha Baptist Temple. The building that the church is in actually used to be a bar, until they bought it and transformed it into a church! Praise the Lord! If you are from Lighthosue in Alexandria, you will remember that you guys sent the money down to pay for this property! How exciting to see how God used your faithfulness in giving to start this work in Cuiaba! Pastor Osmar (Pictured below) is doing an awesome job and it was exciting to see many faces there who might not have been reached were it not for the faithfulness of God's people to do God's work!

      Tomorrow we will be heading around town to the different bairros (neighborhoods) of Cuiaba just to get an idea of the need of church planting here. Recent estimates suggest that there are around 1 million people here in the Greater Cuiaba area! Check back tomorrow because I will be posting specifics about the need here in Cuiaba! ". . . Then said I here am I send me!"
