FIEL Conference 2012

Last week I gave four plenary addresses and participated in two Q&A sessions at the 28th annual FIEL conference in Brazil. Two thousand four hundred people attended.

I was joined by Steve Lawson and Paul Washer as speakers at FIEL. Both men delivered some powerful messages—Lawson on the five points of Calvinism, and Washer on what the gospel is. I spoke on how to use the means of grace, assurance of faith, learning from the Puritans, and persevering to the end.

It was a touching moment at the FIEL conference, when Mr. and Mrs. Richard Denham arrived. Mr. Denham, founder of FIEL, is in frail health but still desired to attend one more annual conference. I had the privilege of praying with both of these dear friends individually. What a sweet couple they are!

Mary Beeke Signing Books

Thousands of books sold at FIEL. Many hours were spent signing books, talking with people, and answering questions on a variety of topics.

Friday and Saturday Paul Washer, Steve Lawson, a Brazilian, and I spoke at the first Reformed conference FIEL has ever offered in Rio de Janeiro, one of the world’s most beautiful cities. About 600 people attended.

Please pray for the Spirit’s work in the great nation of Brazil and for safe travel home.
