Portugal, Viana do Castelo – 4th October 2021

Update from Nuno and Gila

Dear praying friends,

We hope this update finds you well.

September has been a busy month, with kids going back to school and new chapters of movements like Alpha and o Jardim starting again.

Kids are well settled now and we would love you to join us praying for all the children in our community to grow deep in the knowledge of the Lord and not be ashamed of the gospel! (they are a minority in their schools and face difficult situations).

Sundays have been sweet as always and during October we are focusing on the Protestant reformation. Because our community is very new to faith they really don’t know what is the reformation about. Pray the Holy Spirit helps them understand.

Dear praying friends,

Thank you for praying with us and for us! We are so happy to see Tomás coming with his family every Sunday and enjoying being here. We have been having the sweetest worship moments together. Marcelo (in the photo playing bass) is practicing with the youth and everybody sings along. Some just sit and rest in the presence of the Lord and little girls love to dance. Will you pray for those who join online? That the Lord removes whatever is preventing them to come (fear, easiness, tradition…) and gives them a heart desire to be with their brothers and sisters in Jesus. Our desire is for them to experience not only the teaching time, but also the fellowship and worship.

Dear praying friends,

We hope you are all doing well. We are thankful for your continued prayers and support and with hearts filled with hope and joy as we witness the Lord working. Our friend Dave Zimel went back to the US late July and we headed for a few days away on holiday, and it was a much needed restful time. We hiked a lot, saw beautiful new places and enjoyed spending time together.

We had a great time together celebrating our 3rd anniversary. We met at the park, and many joined us. Some friends from Alpha course came and that was really good! Alpha session later that day would be on healing and as Dave Zimel was already with us, he was invited to join and pray for healing for those who wanted. (For those who don’t know Dave, He is a good friend who loves Jesus and who has the gift of evangelism and healing). Testimonies were amazing. Many were healed! And because this was over Zoom, one of the ladies invited Dave and Nuno to go to her home during the week to meet other people and minister to them. All throughout the 13 days Dave was here we witnessed the Holy Spirit moving in amazing ways. People were healed and many came to saving faith in Jesus! We are so thankful and rejoicing with the work the Lord is doing here. Join us in praising Him! And pray for those who came to Jesus, that they keep close to Him, and grow their roots deep. Pray for strength and wisdom for us as we walk with these children of God.

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).
