Celebrating God’s Miracles and New Life

By Ruth and Mike Davis, serving in Brazil

June 20 marked the first anniversary of the Alphaville congregation.  Some of you have read the update concerning the well-attended service, the festive luncheon, and the fun we had watching one of Brazil’s winning games in the World Cup soccer tournament.  The whole day was more than we could have asked for or imagined. 

But what we really celebrate are God’s miracles and the new life we see sprouting in people . . . such as the man who had a recurring dream about a phone number.  When he called the number, he discovered it belonged to a church.  That motivated him to visit one, which was ours.  He and his wife were baptized this year, and he has completed the first book of “Be an Approved Workman.” 

One couple had attended our Bible studies for seven years but came to our Sunday services for the first time in 2010. During a Bible study on the Book of Daniel, they read about Nebuchadnezzar’s seven- year debasement. God’s Word spoke loudly to them about the king’s desire to take the glory for himself instead of giving it to God. 

Another couple just started coming to the church during the last three months.  They are neighbors we met a year ago at a Christian businessmen’s dinner.  They had dismissed the evangelical church as irrelevant until problems hit home, and they started looking for solutions in all the wrong places.  Finally, they tried Alphaville Alliance and said, “Why didn’t we come here first?”

Pray for these and other people in our congregation. Many are trying to leave the ways of spiritism.  It is a struggle for them and for us as we push back the darkness.  May we continue to see God’s power overruling!
