Colossians 2:6-7 urges us to live our lives fully in Christ Jesus being thankful in all situations. This is our primary goal to live in Christ and allow Christ to live in us as we seek to fulfill His call for our lives, and because He is so gracious to use people like us our hearts are overflowing with thankfulness. Let us share with you some ministry highlights: Kleber and Juracema The Brazilian missionari es to the Makua People in Mozambiq ue were in Brazil on furlough and visited the BRoLM (Brazil River of Life Ministries) churches in Sao Paulo on the first week in April.

After a busy week speaking in Sao Paulo they went back to Mozambique on Tuesday April 8 th . BRoLM Annual Board Meeting On April 10th the BRoLM board met. It was a great meeting with a lot of vision-casting for the future, especially concerning the doors God has opened for   the   “Hands   On”   Bible College. Tim Shields continues as Chairman, LeAnne Blackmore as Secretary, Jim Knowles as Trustee, Jeff Fife as Executive Director, Monica Fife as Director of Ministries and we welcome Amy Crawford as Treasurer. Amy is married to Tim Crawford, she is a member at First Christian Church in Johnson City, TN, and she is a CPA. We are very thankful for Roger Fife for the time he served helping Elena Coelho in 2012 and for his service in 2013. Resurrection Celebration Every year since 2006, BRoLM promotes a big Resurrection Celebration for all the churches in Sao Paulo. On April 20th all the BRoLM churches gathered at a ranch rented by BRoLM for this occasion and had a blessed celebration. The churches led the worship, Brother Simonette from the Campo Limpo Paulista church preached, Brother Vinicius from the Campinas church did Communion Meditation and Brother Gilberto from Sao Mateus church baptized Fabio Costa and Larissa. After the morning service the churches shared a great lunch with lots of Brazilian steaks and sausages and an afternoon of fellowship. This is a highlight for the churches every year!
