CAMPO GRANDE, Brazil (BNc) by Jose Carlos Balabuch — Lorivan understood that in order to preach the gospel and make followers of Christ (Mk 16.15-16; Mt 28.19-20), he didn’t need to study a theology course, an evangelism course or wait for a special call.
He just needed to obey the commands of his Lord.
That’s why he sought out his own family, and for two months he studied the Word with his brother Samuel.
Yesterday afternoon, Samuel was born again (Jn 3.3-7). And as the Scriptures say, if anyone is in Christ, there is no condemnation (Rm 8.1).
Randal and his wife Vicki have lived and worked in Brazil since Nov. 1984. They have three children, two daughters-in-law, and five grandchildren. He likes to read novels in his back-porch hammock. http://randal.us
