The AME (Adventures in Evangelistic Missions) program is right here in João Pessoa. Each year, for the past three years we have received around 6 young adults between the ages of 18 and 25. They spend eight months living in João Pessoa, participating in 30 class hours per week, go on evangelistic campaigns and help the congregations in the different neighborhoods of João Pessoa. At the end of the year, they spend a month with family before “Adventuring” off to help other congregations throughout South America.
This January, two, three-member teams moved to Santa Cruz de La Sierra, Bolivia and Candeias in Recife, Brazil. They have now been in the field for two months. Routines have been established and I am sure the excitement of telling others about Christ continues to grow.
This month of March we will have a graduation for the class of 2014 and we will be welcoming students of the class of 2016. Please pray: that every student may focus on Jesus and His obedience to the Father, that these two years of their lives may transform them into lifetime, all-out followers of Christ.
