Youth Summit


First, I would like to thank you for your prayers. Catarina is fully recovered.
We have been very busy this weekend with this Youth Summit. We had young people and leaders from churches in Northern Ireland, England, Spain, Italy and also Portugal. It was such a wonderful time where God was praised. But we also realized that Europe is the continent which is in greater need of missions. And it is the missionary field for which we pray less.
The couple who stayed with us was very nice and we spent a very good time with them. And we hope to visit them in Ireland next year.
This weekend I was also challenged by God and by our Pastor. I had to translate into English the preachings of two other Pastors. For those who don't know, speaking in front of so many people was a nightmare for me, something I always thought it would be absolutely impossible. And added to that, I'm not used to speaking in English. I write, I read, but I don't usually speak. I was sooooooo nervous. But God helped me and I survived!!!
