Fernandes – Cartaxo November 2020

In Him and for Him,
Isabel Fernandes

Ever since I found salvation, I have understood how urgent and important it is to preach the Gospel. In my innocence I believed that people would easily believe in an enthusiastic way. Throughout my walk, the Lord has showed me that things are not like that, for many have rejected and don’t even want to listen about our faith. Something interesting has started to happen in my walk of faith. The Lord has started to bring to my path people who are already near the end of their lives. Whether it be in hospitals, in nursing homes, churches or someone’s house, I had the joy of being used to save people for Jesus, whether they might be children, adults or elderly ones.

The Lord has heard our voice!

Update from Isabel Fernandes

For a few years now I have been asking the Lord that He would open a door to give access to the community. In the last weeks, we have united our strengths by praying together. Today, together, we can give thanks to the Lord because He has heard our voice!

My application to work and collaborate as a volunteer during this Covid-19 crisis was accepted by the town hall. I have been contributing by shopping groceries for people who are currently in quarantine and I also help serve dinner to a group of people from India who are under quarantine at a public school in Cartaxo.

Grace and peace,

For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world. Ephesians 6:12

This fight has been felt by our team in spiritual attacks against the body, against the mind and against the soul. But the grace of God is present and that is enough. Every day the Lord gives us comfort, enhances our strength and blesses us in every conflict.

The initiative of offering “Brigadeiros” with a New Testament, as a Christmas present has been very positive. We had the opportunity of serving as a family and many received the message of Jesus in a personal and friendly way. Now, after Christmas, we continue to use this strategy, during visits and as a way to strengthen relationships, creating an opening to share the Gospel, which is sweeter than honey.
