The invitation that has brought us to Brazil is from Editora FIEL, founded by Richard and Pearl Denham, who began working in Brazil in 1952. Johnny is one of the speakers at this year’s Brazilian FIEL Conference for pastors and church leaders. The FIEL Conference is one of several ministries of Editora FIEL.
Adopt-A-Pastor is another of FIEL’s ministries. Adopt-a-Pastor began with North Americans and North American churches adopting Brazilian pastors. Now FIEL is connecting Brazilians and Brazilian churches with pastors in Mozambique.
When I think of the video we saw last night—a shorter version of the one below—I remember the pastor who said, “One book is a treasure in the hands of a pastor.” What a contrast to the shelves and shelves of books in our house. Some I’ve read. Some I haven’t.
If you already have Africa on your heart, you’ll want to watch all 14 minutes of the video. But even a few moments will give you something to think about and pray about.
If you do watch the whole video, and comment below to say you did, that’ll put your name another time in the drawing for the Mystery Gift from Brazil. It would be great if you wanted to add some thoughts or impressions also.
