It was a lovely journey to Manaíra this Saturday to preach at the final big Gospel rally in the open-air as the last public service of this year's 10-day special Outreach. This Sunday morning the 100 strong team broke bread together in a service of thanksgiving prior to everyone heading home.
The service was great yesterday and the sermon went down really well. The crowd present was enormous. It was lovely to chat to all the team and the leaders and get a full feel of how well the Outreach had gone and which yielded a total of 25 decisions for Christ. PTL!
The only difficult part of these Saturday night services are the long journies (about 3 hours each way) plus meetings and service etc. It meant we got to bed at 1am and we never manage to sleep in the next morning so it is tiring but well worthwhile.
