Encouraging Words from Portuguese-Speaking Believers
Our Portuguese outreach team in Brazil develops new radio, TV and print ministry programs and materials that introduce people to their Savior and strengthen their faith. God encourages our ministry as many of our program followers respond to the messages we produce. More than 13,000 readers request our Cada Dia devotional booklets each month. In addition, our five ministry Facebook pages attract thousands of followers and this number increases daily.
Luz Para o Caminho (Light for the Way), our Portuguese ministry, provides light in an area affected by political corruption and violence. Since beginning the outreach in 1969, God has continued blessing us with resources to bring the Gospel to Portuguese-speaking people from state-of-the-art production facilities in Campinas, Brazil. Our team works in partnership with the Presbyterian Church in Brazil, local Christian universities, and several mission agencies. These partnerships help us more effectively share the Gospel with people in Brazil.
