Thousands of Brazilians Hear and Receive the Gospel

It was a great privilege to join American and Brazilian evangelists in the end of May and into early June in the city of Caico in Northeastern Brazil where thousands of souls were impacted with the Gospel. After a week of outreaches in schools, community centres and lower-income neighbourhoods, our week culminated with a huge festival on an island in the centre of the city.  Food was given to the poor, children were ministered to, and youth were impacted through seeing feats of strength by ‘Team Extreme’ as well as a concert by a Brazilian-American hip hop artist.

Our time in Brazil was not without opposition as there was much unrest in the nation while we were there. A local religious leader told the people of his city not to participate in our events. In spite of his threats to expel them from their churches, they showed up anyways and God touched their lives.  A nationwide trucker’s strike also hindered travel across the country as trucks blocked highways and prevented food from getting to grocery stores and fuel from getting to gas stations and airports, causing many flights to be cancelled. The police supported the trucker’s strike and so the military was called in. We passed a blockade on our way into the city we ministered in and saw a banner that said ‘Militario Intervencia.’ In spite of all the opposition, the Gospel went forth and many people were greatly impacted!

Open Doors in Colombia and Panama

A number of open doors presented themselves to us in Barranquilla, Colombia in the beginning of November.  In addition to preaching in several local churches, we ministered at a large family conference, in a women's prison, and in a large Christian school.  We also had opportunities to go on the radio with the Gospel, including one station that had numerous calls and texts while we were on the air.  It was a great experience having the live interaction with listeners whose hearts were being touched by the Gospel. 

On our way to and from Colombia, we were able to visit with Don & Connie Rysavy, who are good friends and supporters of Canadian Fire.  After deciding to make this stop in Panama, we were invited to be a part of a major evangelistic campaign called 'Panama para Cristo' (Panama for Christ) which will be happening throughout 2018.
