Lêda, a pedagogic coordinator of a public school, had students that complained of stomach pain due to hungry. With the help of her church, they gave food and bought a pair of crutches for a boy (the victim of an accident with a drunken motorcyclist). In the same school, a group from the church did an event with music, drama, Bible teaching, and a talk about the dangers of child abuse. The lyrics of their song was a cry to God in the middle of hardships. The children responded in positive ways and a girl — abandoned by her mother and raised by neighbors– gave her life to Jesus. The group prayed for her and manifested the grace of God in her life. Some parents participated and expressed their joy to see such an event for the first time in that town.
Diogo, a missionary in Bahia, said, “Something that has always been our concern is the challenge to migrate from a theoretical basis of biblical truths to a more practical and active basis in the real context of day-to-day life. With this in mind, we intensified our prayers for the church and saw the Harvest training as an answer from God to which we should respond. Since then, we’ve practiced these truths with wonderful results.”
