I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing”
John 15:5

 

We are confident that the Lord will raise a new church in the city of Cartaxo-Portugal, district of Santarem, 60 Km north of Lisbon. Cartaxo is a city of 25.000 inhabitants, where 90% of it identifies as Roman Catholic. In reality, most people are agnostic or are involved in a religious syncretism, this is, a blend of Roman Catholicism with practices of witchcraft.

This church planting project is being led by Pt. Adil Reis, his wife Érica Reis and Isabel Fernandes, alongside with Pt. Vitor Cruz, pastor of the Moscavide Baptist Church in Lisbon, which provides the backup and support needed for this great undertaking of God.

We give thanks to the builder of our work because without Him we are short-handed. We give thanks because we have committed partners, a faithful team, the family of Pt. Adil and even my three children, who also help with our project.

Cartaxo is known as the Capital of Wine. We dream that this city may become known for the new wine, fruit of the true vine, from which His branches spread, giving much fruit to the glory of God and our joy.

Dream with us. Be part of this project of life. Rejoice in hope. Pray that the Lord makes the blindfold fall and reveals Himself to this people as the one who loved until the final consequences. We believe that He will still do many great things in Cartaxo.

 

In Jesus Christ,
