The apostle Paul said:
"To me, the least of all the saints, was given this grace to announce to the gentiles the inscrutable riches of Christ." (Eph 3:8)
Considering the imprisonments, the persecutions, the beatings that Paul received because of the Gospel, his words about receiving an "undeserved gift" to preach to the lost reveal a deeper importance of the Gospel than we have yet grasped.
I felt this during the Carnaval period as I traveled with my good friends and brothers Cesar and Randy from city to city in Piaui, sharing Christ. This campaign gave opportunity to continue another campaign of raising among Brazilian brethren money to send a team of native missionaries to the city of Campina Grande as we passed through cities that already have congregations. The church in Natal and Fernando's family in Itarema have grasped this grace to participate with us in preaching the Gospel of Christ to the lost in Campina Grande. May more capture the vision.
