Brazilian Conferences

Safely in Brazil with Mary, doing the first of two conferences, for our last long trip this year. Last night I spoke to 400 ministers, church leaders, and laypeople on taking hold of God and ourselves in prayer—the first of four addresses here in Governador Valadares on the theme of “Cultivating Godly Leadership Intentionally.”

Mary spoke to more than a hundred women on “Teachers of Good Things.” After I spoke, we spent considerable time signing books, including a beat-up copy of my “A Puritan Theology” (in Portuguese), with its cover torn off due to heavy use (see picture)! I was also encouraged to sign copies of two of my books newly translated into Portuguese that I had not yet seen, including “Reformed Preaching.”

This afternoon I am speaking on “Coping with Criticism in the Ministry” and Mary is speaking on “Preparing for a Godly Marriage.” Please pray for God’s rich blessing on this conference.
