Becoming Involved

Becoming Involved

In America, it ‘s hard to get involved in people private lives. It is the same here in the river communities. The families are closed, and it takes time to worm your way into their lives, but that is the task of a missionary. To build these relations over time so that they trust you and listen to you as you share about the God you serve. As you develop these relationships, you end up deep in the middle of some of these families. One such person is Cordero. He asked me to be his best man at his wedding recently. It was an enjoyable learning experience for us. Here in Brazil, people do not get married at the church. They have civil weddings as specific locations in the city, or sometimes a judge will do group marriages for the poor. The new couple is now good friends and participating in our small church group. Pray for us as we seek the Holy Spirit to open these doors of relationships for us.
