ProPresenter Blessing

Thanks to generous donations the ministry was able to purchase a site license for propresenter, which is a powerpoint type program that you can use videos or live video as the backgrounds.

The church in Lagoa de Itaenga just had an open air evangelism night partnering with the other churches in the town. This was the first time we were able to test out propresenter at a service. The service was amazing and nobody in this region had every seen such a program. It helped to draw in the crowds.
Pastor Ricardo preached on the love of God in John 3:16 and we had a closing song. When the song started playing we showed a video background of the crucifixion. It was perfect timing and as you looked around several people were crying. It was so wonderful to see the churches in this community come together to bring the love of Christ to the people.

For those of you that missed the Dialog with Tele, we will put that online soon.

Dialog With The Director of WRB

Dear Friends,
On Thursday, February 24 we will hold a conference call for friends and partners of World Renewal Brazil (WRB) to share about the incredible work God is doing through Glory Sports Ministries.

Glory Sports Ministries exists to engage youth through sports activities with the gospel of Jesus Christ.  Recently, God has provided some unique opportunities through the public school system to expand and reach more youth.  We are receiving great favor among local principals who are excited about the work of Glory Sports Ministries because we provide an alternative to the drugs, prostitution and violence facing their students.
Join us as Tele Moraes, President of World Renewal Brazil, and Steve Turner, U. S. Operations Director for WRB, will be live in Brazil giving us the “play by play” of this and other exciting opportunities.
February 24, 2011 at 1:30 p.m. EST

If you would like to participate in the call, please email Jeff Turner at and he will reply with the call-in number and passcode.
We welcome you to invite others who may be interested in hearing about what God is doing through Glory Sports Ministries.  Please forward them this email and request that they also contact Jeff for the call information.
We appreciate your ongoing prayers and support for the people of Northeast Brazil and the work of World Renewal.

Celebrate Recovery gets a retreat home

Celebrate Recovery is an outreach to addicts and substance abuse victims. Pastor Pedro who is involved with the newest church plant in Recife has always had a heart to start this outreach.

The retreat was given to us for two years rent free. The ministry gets possession of it in March. It is a blessing to have such a wonderful place where addicts can get out of their bad environment learn about the life they can have in Christ.
