Ron & Nancy Johnson Prayer Letter……September 2008
Brazil Gospel Fellowship Mission
In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins: Colossians 1:14
Dear Praying Friend,
Greetings in the name which is above every name: the Name of Jesus!
The month of August was an extra busy month. We finished moving our last things from our normal rented house near Fortaleza Academy: 32 kilometers from Jereissati. We are now moved into a small rented duplex 2 ½ kilometers from the Jereissati church. Now instead of taking 35 to 40 minutes of driving time to get to church or to go visiting, it takes only 5 minutes driving time or 20 minutes walking time.
Pray for us as we travel out to camp this week. We will be living out there at camp part of each month, helping at Antioch Bible Institute. Pray for my health. I (Ron) have been having more reminders recently that I have an ulcer. Pray for me. Thank you.

August 17 Lydia and her husband Shawn arrived at the Fortaleza Airport and spent 10 days with us. It was such a blessing to have them with us during that time. We had never had our married daughter and her husband in our home as we came back to Brazil last winter shortly after they were married. The last time we had seen them was their wedding day Dec 28th, 07. We took them out to Butija where Shawn spoke at an open air evangelistic service in front of a new convert’s mud hut and I translated. He spoke on “Lord save us: we perish!”Matthew 8:26b. We also took them out to camp, Antioch Bible Institute, Pavuna, and of course, our own church at Jereissati. All together, Shawn spoke at 4 different churches and also showed his power point pictures of ministry in Spain. Many of their prayer cards were given out and many promised to pray for them. It was hard to tell them good bye when they got on that plane to return home to Tennessee. Pray that they might be able to arrive in Spain to begin their church planting ministry by the end of this year. If you would like to receive their prayer letters, their address is: firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. Their phone: (423) 658-1719.
Thank you for praying for the DVBS’s. We rejoice that several children accepted Christ as Saviour both in Jereissati and in Butija!
Nancy has visited close to 200 homes this far of families who have children in our church school in Jereissati. Pray for these families visited! Some have come out to church services. Pray for an outreach with drug addicts that is being planned as well for Jereissati.
Pray for evangelistic outreach that we are planning with students of Antioch Bible Institute. Attendance is up to 20 students!
Thank you for your faithful prayers and financial support! We pray God’s rich blessing on you--- our supporters!
Yours and His,
Ron & Nancy (plus Libby)
