We Started a Bible Club!

In March, we started a Bible Club at our house on Saturday mornings from 9:30-10:30. The first Saturday we had nine kids show up! Each week since then we have had 10-13 kids participate. Every week there has been at least two new kids. So far 30 kids have participated at least one time!

The kids really seem to enjoy singing, playing games, learning a Bible verse, and hearing the stories. They are pretty well-behaved, too! Some of the kids are so anxious for it to start that they show up early as 8:00!

The Bible Club has opened some doors to witness to the parents of these children. I have visited the home of every child that I have a complete address for. Unfortunately, some of the kids only know part of their address or none of it at all. This makes it challenging to visit them, but I'm working on it! Last week, Cassia, Igor's mother, accepted Christ! We are hoping and praying that God will allow us to reach our neighborhood through the Bible Club.

Hello 2013!

Well, it's a new year filled with new plans. Tim has decided to "seed" the city of Arcos at least six times this year, which translates into passing out about 100,000 tracts. We are really excited to see how God uses these tracts here in Arcos. We have already had two men visit the church because of receiving a tract. Exciting!

We are also looking forward to camp next month. The preaching is exciting, the food is good, and the fellowship is wonderful! It is a blessing to get to know believers from other churches around Brazil.

Tim is also getting ready to start the Bible Institute back up after camp. There are four or five people signed up to take the courses.
