I really enjoy the part of my ministry that “requires” me to accompany our students as they carry out their weekend ministries. I especially thrive on being able to travel with some of them who work in more remote places of our region.
On Saturday I joined Evaldísio and his new bride, Maria, at their work in the small village of Quexeriú–about three hours from the seminary.

Poço de Pedra

On our way there we stopped by the little settlement of Poço de Pedra.

Rock Formation

We also passed this intriguing rock formation.


Upon reaching Quixeriú, this was the site that greeted us.

Evaldisio and Maria

This is the church where Evaldísio and Maria work. The congregation has no pastor, so they carry the whole burden of responsibility for the ministry.

Evaldísio does visitation…

Evaldisio Preaching

And has a preaching and teaching ministry.
Pray for them as they work, because the opposition to their ministry is strong.

Catholic Church

Catholic Seminary

The Catholic church (top figure) still wields a lot of influence. There is also a Catholic seminary in nearby Campos Sales (bottom figure) which sends its own students to the city on a regular basis as well.
Evaldísio and Maria are doing a wonderful job in this town. On Sunday night there were five visitors, and one of the people we visited on Saturday was a new convert. Please continue to pray for this hardworking couple.
