Dear Prayer Team,
“And daily in the temple, and in every house,
they CEASED NOT to teach and preach Jesus Christ.”
Acts 5:42
We thank our Lord that God has allowed us to continue to teach and preach Jesus Christ here in the land of Brazil. Let us share with you some great things God is doing.
The work at Good News Baptist Congregation in Sao Pedro continues steady and we are thankful for the progress we have seen. In the next few prayer letters, we will be sharing with you some “before and after” pictures of the construction and other aspects of the work. One of our biggest praises is that soon we will be able to move closer to the work so that we can become even more involved in reaching that needy neighborhood with the Gospel of Christ. PLEASE NOTICE OUR CHANGE IN ADDRESS:

Just recently, four people raised their hands for salvation after John preached the Word during the invitation time. God is working!! Thank you for your continued prayers regarding this work.
We couldn’t be happier about the opportunities God has given to us to preach the Gospel “in the temple” (at Sao Pedro), and also “in every house.” Our most recent meeting was in a town called “Fazendinha” where we were invited into the home of an UNSAVED couple (Flavio and Maria and their little boy Kennedy). They invited their friends and neighbors and we had an excellent meeting. We believe that about ½ of the people present were not born again. This was soo exciting to us!! Although there were no decisions made, we were invited back, and we are thinking that God is really going to use this opportunity to reach more Brazilians with the Gospel. The best part about it is that they are all from North Brazil where we ministered previously, so we felt like we were back home! Even John’s “hillbilly” Portuguese accent was used to attract others to the meeting. God’s plan is ALWAYS perfect in our lives!
Your prayers for us are vital to our work. Thank you again, and we encourage you to keep on praying!!
Sincerely in Christ,
John and Bev Leonard
Your Missionaries to Brazil, South America
