Pastor Danilo’s “Prayer Room”

Here is Pastor Danilo, who was so helpful to us as our personal translator and chauffeur this past weekend in Franca, Brazil, standing in his “prayer room.” Yesterday we had a meal at his home and he showed us his study, which serves as his prayer room. When the home they built was submitted to the proper authorities for approval, the town council was quite upset to see a “prayer room” in the plans. They said that it had to go through several steps of approval. But when they found out that it was not for the gathering of a significant number of people, but just to be used as a private prayer room, they were amazed and gave permission for it to be built. The pastors, however, also pray together often. When the church experienced remarkable revival some years ago they used to pray together with a few other brothers from midnight to 6:00 a.m. approximately once a week for the Holy Spirit to continue to pour Himself out upon their flock and on Brazil.

The Queen and I are now winging our way home from Brazil after a long series of conferences spanning the past two months, and are looking forward to being home for all but one weekend from now until February. We are grateful for God’s sustaining grace and for your prayers.
