Clenildo and Angelita and their three children came to visit us for a week. In Altamira Clenildo led the local pastoral team while I led the missionary team. We worked together in Altamira for more than 12 years, and we always consider our friendship to be a great favor from God. Clenildo graciously helps me and other missionaries understand Brazilian culture and leadership. As we work at planting a national church-planting movement Clenildo remains our leader. Clenildo and Elba are both part of the national co-ordinator team for the Vineyard Brasil church-planting movement.
Clenildo and Angelito both express their love for Jesus by passionately promoting missions, personal discipleship, small groups and the local church. When we first knew Clenildo and Angelita they were serving God sacrificially as Brazilian missionaries, supplemented their groceries by fishing from a wooden canoe and travelling with their young child on a strong, one-speed, black bicycle. They continue to serve the Lord sacrificially and He continues to increase their means of doing so. Their three children, Denise, Jonatás and Junior also love the Lord and are a great blessing wherever they go.
Please pray for this family,
1. That God will give them divine health,
2. That God will continue to increase their capacity to lead others,
3. That God will continue to increase their “toolbox”,
4. That God will clearly lead their children to whatever great things He has planned for them.
