Preaching Debut

Since we stepped off the plane here in Natal, the church has been asking John to preach.  There are two families leading the congregation as full-time ministers.  The fact that those two men were in desperate need of a break coupled with John's good reputation as a preacher had them anxious to open the pulpit to him. 
 This past Sunday was the day.  He delivered a moving message - in Portuguese - on love.  The congregation responded warmly and the leaders have asked John to consider working into the preaching rotation.  For now, he has agreed to give them a break from time to time - at least until we are a bit more settled and have a better understanding of our roles here.
