CAJAZEIRAS, BRAZIL (BNc)- Seven people received certificates for completing the course, “How to Become a Christian.”

But one young lady received even more when she decided that just knowing how to become a Christian wasn’t enough. Raquel is her name and Helder Sales baptized her into Christ. May God strengthen Raquel in her new life.

Helder and Rivaldo Café labor in the gospel in Cajazeiras.

Cajazeiras certificatesIn other news, Joe McKinney Sr., and Ricardo Sobral returned to João Pessoa yesterday from a 10-day journey through seven cities: Caruaru, Vertentes, Taquaritinga, Patos, Belém do Brejo do Cruz, Emas, Catingueira and Olho d’Agua.

They were exhausted, but satisfied with the objectives accomplished: seminar in Caruaru, encouraging small churches and exhorting church workers.

Ricardo called it being “tired in the Lord”. Pray with us that these trips will add up in the long run to the strengthening of the Kingdom of Christ in the states of Paraíba and Pernambuco.

Randal and his wife Vicki have lived and worked in Brazil since Nov. 1984. They have three children, two daughters-in-law, and four grandchildren. He likes to read novels in his back-porch hammock. http://randal.us
