I went to a long but good Bible study in Patos on Saturday. I met with church workers from most of the congregations in our state. We sat and studied the Bible from 9:30 to 6 p.m., yes, we did break for lunch, but that was our only break.
The purpose for these meetings is to teach in a practical way how to study God's Word with someone who does not share your same view on a subject. I will be moving back to the U.S. at the end of 2016, so this is important.
I heard several positive comments about our meeting together and some negative ones as well.
Thank you for your prayers. They mean a lot, and God is answering them. Please pray that the church in Paraíba will grow in love for one another and in knowledge of God's Word and will.
