Dear praying friends,

Thanks for your continued support in prayer. It is much needed and appreciated!

On Saturday the women gathered for the last meeting before summer break. They studied the sermon on the mount for the past 9 months and it was such a time of growth for all who were part of it. On the photo you see many of the faces we usually ask you to pray for (from left to right): Mafalda, Verena (holding Mel), Gila, Vera, Anita, Andrezza and Marjorie. There are a few others that usually join online, and also need your prayers: Antónia, Graça, Sandra, Rita, Brazilina and Bina. Please continue to pray for these women and their families, that they may keep walking close with the Lord, obeying Him step by step.

Dear praying friends,

We want to thank you for praying with us for Carlos. Last Friday Nuno visited him and Carlos was feeling much better, he even walked for the first time in weeks. Praise God! Please keep him in your prayers, may the Lord be exalted through Carlos’ life.

Pray also for his sister Isabel, for her to know how much God loves her and for her to receive the gift of salvation in her heart. Pray for protection from the enemy’s schemes and lies of void promises of healing and deliverance through reiki and other abominable new age ways.

May all this situation bring much glory to our Lord Jesus Christ in Viana and beyond.

Dear praying friends,

Last weekend we were so happy to be able to meet in person again! We had our third session of the Worship workshop on Saturday and everyone who came had such a wonderful time reflecting on the many different ways we can worship the Lord. Benni and Tabea are leading this workshop and everyone is diving deep on what it means to live as an act of worship. Pray for Benni and Tabea, as they are in a transition season and will soon leave to go back to Germany. Pray for the Lord`s guidance for their life.

Dear praying friends,

We hope and pray you are all doing well.

Today is a very special day for our family, as we celebrate Leonor’s 15th birthday! We had a quiet (just as she likes) and joyful celebration, with her favorite food for lunch (butter chicken!) and her favorite dessert too. Join us in praying for Leonor to keep growing in the knowledge of the Lord and that the joy of the Lord is her strength!

Dear praying friends,

We hope and pray you are all doing well, filled with grace and peace.

As we continue in lockdown, we continue to gather online as church. The Covid numbers are decreasing, praise the Lord, and we hope that by the end of March we are able to resume our gatherings here at home. Please continue praying for all the families in our community, and especially for the ones who live by themselves (Brasilina, also Madalena, who are battling depression).

Dear praying friends,

We hope you are all doing well.

We continue in lockdown, and today school starts online. We thank the Lord for His grace that carries us through every season in life. Leonor is very happy to be at home, but Diogo misses his school friends, and some days are just challenging. Keeping the balance between time on screen, family moments, things that need to be done… it’s a full time job! Join us in praying not only for our family, but for all the families in our community, especially those with children. Pray for all the logistics involved with school at home, as well as wisdom for us parents to deal with anxiety and frustration that arise from being stuck at home for so long.

Dear praying friends,

We hope this finds you in good health.
Here we are in 2021. A new year, with some new challenges and old ones too. But our trust remains in our beloved Jesus, who said to his disciples to take heart because He had overcome the world, and though we certainly have tribulation, He is our peace.

Dear praying friends,

How are you doing?
We are well, by God’s grace. Challenges continue, but so does the Father’s faithfulness. The restrictions due to the virus have pushed us to have our meetings only through Zoom. We are grateful for technology and that almost every person in our community is able to connect. Please pray that in these difficult times people draw near to the Father.
