Brazilian churches have a tradition that their American counterparts might want to consider adopting. When a member of the church receives a blessing, or an answer to prayer, they often call the church together–either in their home or at the church building itself–for a thanksgiving service. This is a sweet, genuine expression of gratefulness, and an acknowledgement that “every good thing comes from above”.
This evening (Saturday) one such service was held at the Ebenezer congregation. We have been praying that God would work in the life of the husband of one of our charter members. Through a series of circumstances, God did exactly that, and this evening the church gathered to praise God for His faithfulness.
May many more such services follow!
