Romaria 2009

As we have done every year since our arrival in Brazil, we participated last week in the Evangelism Outreach to the Romeiros. This ministry is aimed at evangelizing one of the most difficult demographics in Brazil–religious pilgrims who have traveled many miles to worship Padre Cícero.

As always, I was in charge of the puppet team. This year we also had help from three young ladies who work with Child Evangelism Fellowship. I am indebted to them for the pictures below, as I was too busy to think about being a shutterbug.

Pilgrims come from all parts of Brazil, many in makeshift “buses” like the one above, called a “Pau de Arara”.

This is the mother church, which is the center of activities for the pilgrims.

We set up our puppet stage beside this building: the Padre Cicero Elementary School. If he only knew…

Here is the puppet team. If you have not already, please take a minute to read about an exciting opportunity they have next year.

One of the CEF missionaries gives a Bible illustration, with help from our very own Bruno the Brazilian.

This was the scene every time we put on a presentation. All we had to do was start, and there was an immediate crowd.

It is a special privilege to be able to share the Good News with these wonderful people. Please pray with us that the message that was proclaimed last week will bear much fruit.
