English Conference

A couple years ago we were approached by a couple young people from Peace Baptist Church in Juazeiro about the possibility of starting and English-language Sunday School class. The idea was to reach out to the many young people in the community who are studying English and welcome opportunities to practice it.

This ministry proved to be a great blessing. Towards the end of our time in Brazil one of the students, Maurícios, offered to continue the class after we left. He also shared his vision for a conference done in English and aimed specifically at unsaved English students in the area.

Last weekend that vision became a reality. The first annual English Conference was held. Here are some pictures I received from the event.

Maurício, in the middle, was the visionary and organizer of the conference.

Our colleague Jim Leanard was the speaker. Here he is shown with wife Julie and daughter JoyAnna, and members of the conference staff.

The theme for the conference was “Who Am I”. One of the theme songs was the Casting Crowns piece of the same name.

From what I have heard the conference was a blessing. Please pray for Maurício as he continues this ministry.
