Dreams are coming true

Since the first Novo Tempo church was planted in Pernambuco, (North East Brazil) back in 2005, our dream has been to have a church that is more than just a gathering of people in a building.

We dream, pray and work hard to be a fully engaged discipleship church that is also committed to alleviating the serious social problems we face in Brazil such as poverty, violence, drugs addiction, street kids and many other issues.

The social work in Recife, our main church, has been constant year after year. The local pastors Edilson and Eliane are doing a fantastic job, constantly improving the quality of service to the impoverished community next to the church building, definitely a dream come true for us and there are still more to come!

The mission project in Sertao (380km from Recife) also is doing very well. In addition to the three churches that have been planted and the three wells that have been dug to alleviate the suffering of the population facing constant seasons of drought, at the start of 2020 they have also launched a new project farming fish and planting organic vegetables. The local pastors, Carlos and Cristina, are in the process of developing a cooperative project to make good use of fish and vegetables to benefit the local population, yet again a dream is coming true.

The youngest church in our network is located in Igarassu, metropolitan area of Recife, the local pastors are Joab and Rebecca and they also are developing a beautiful ministry over there. The pandemic and its consequences are dragging millions of Brazilians into extreme poverty, reaching unthinkable levels of misery, to the point where many families have virtually nothing to eat. They can’t rely on government help because the way the many different levels of government are dealing with the pandemic is a shameful disgrace.

With these situations in mind, the church in Igarassu rented a big hall to develop social work in the poorest area of the city, it is early days, but the testimonies are amazing, people come to Jesus, people are fed, abandoned kids are cared for with much love, and a light of hope shining for these suffering people. Praise the Lord, for one more dream is coming true!

I don’t have enough words to express how grateful I am.

First to God. To see something that was a dream 16 years ago becoming a consistent reality through the years, is a blessing. As is seeing these churches growing, with their commitment to the Word of God, the strong discipleship program and practical expression of the love of Jesus to all the people around them.

Second to our Senior Minister Colin Dye, for his dedication and input, pouring out his life to bless my people over so many years. As the apostle Paul said: “Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourself fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labour in the Lord is not in vain. (1 Corinthians 15:58).

How Fortunate are the Peacemakers

How Fortunate are the Peacemakers

[4 min read] It is a basic feature of flawed humanity to want to control, to dominate, to be powerful. But this is not Jesus’ way. He did not commend the warriors or the rulers, the powerful or the leaders, instead he said: ‘How fortunate are the peacemakers, for they shall be called children of God’.

Rejuvenated in God

Have you noticed in life things get old and wear out? Your jeans, your shoes, your car. We sometimes push them to their very limit, squeezing that very last mile out of them; one might even say we run them into the ground.

Starting up a Christian Group at work

Over the last year, our church family has learnt a huge amount about doing things online, and our work by the ‘Giants’ groups in equipping our church did not slow down. Now, as more and more of us return to places of work, we are reminded of our harvest field with the number of close relationships we tend to develop in the workplace.
