Ron and Nancy Johnson Prayer Letter---March 2008
Brazil Gospel Fellowship Mission

“For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that ye through his poverty might be rich.” II Corinthians 8:9

Dear Praying Friend,

We thank God for you and are praying for you. We trust this finds you doing well and rejoicing in the Lord. We have been keeping busy and are praising the Lord for the privilege of serving Him in Brazil again.

The first Sunday of March we were able to visit the outstation of in the mountain valley of Butija. We went up on a Saturday evening, spent the night (slept in hammocks), helped with Sunday school and left after the evening service. We were able to have a lot of time to talk with Pastor Vicente and his family and catch up on God’s blessing in Butija this past year. Pastor Vicente’s wife, Lucia, has the gift of hospitality and is a great cook!

Pastor Vicente and his wife talked with us of their desire to have our input in that ministry as well. They have some special needs there—there are teens in the church now that are at a crucial time in their lives. Ministry with teens is something Nancy enjoys. Pastor Vicente would like Ron to help with preaching and evangelism. March 15th, we go to the mountain town of Palmacia for an evangelistic service. A new church is being planted in that mountain city. Pray that we will have wisdom and strength as we plan on serving the Lord in various places!

Nancy has had the privilege of visiting in the homes of children whom the Jereisatti I Bible Baptist Church School is reaching. There are so many family problems and poverty along with spiritual needs which many do not even realize that they have. Pray for fruitful visits! Pray that we might see more souls saved!

We really appreciate your prayers for our safety as we minister in some places that could be considered dangerous. Thank you so much for your prayers. Please keep praying

Love in Christ,
Ron and Nancy Johnson (plus Libby)
