Peter and Nelly Cerqueira
Our feature missionaries for the months of March and April are Peter and Nelly Cerqueira, It was a blessing to have been able to spend time with Peter and Nelly, and to welcome Daisy into the family. Nelly and Peter returned to Portugal on February 8th. They will be continuing the work of evangelism and building up believers. In Portugal, there has been a failure to disciple believers. Many are given leadership positions that they are unqualified for because there aren’t many to choose from. There is very little Bible training and study. Assembly members are not sharing their faith with others and the Gospel is not going forth. There are still unreached areas, and areas in which churches have died and no evangelical work remains. By God’s grace, Peter and Nelly hope to see the church revived and new works started. Peter is involved in Bible teaching and preaching in various assemblies. He is also working on a YouTube channel, since people spend more time on the internet than reading or studying. There is very little good Bible teaching in Portuguese. Praise the Lord for continued progress on the house and grounds. They have a little over four acres and Peter and Nelly want to use all of it to honour the Lord. Through the work and upkeep, they continue to make connections and build bridges for the sake of the Gospel.
Pray that they would be bold in evangelism, always giving a reason for the hope that lies within them.
Pablo and Sarah Cenepo-Torres
Pablo, Sarah Cenepo-Torres and family serve in Trujillo, Peru. They are currently on furlong, with family in Maryland, US., Lord willing they will return in June.
Pray - For their adoption journey, that God will make everything clear and show which child should belong to them. That their time in the USA would be refreshing, that their reports would be intentional focused on the furtherance of the Gospel. For the leadership of Centro Biblico Trujillo and that the Church body would desire to meet together more and more. For Hogar de Esperanza (Orphanage) that the land disputes would be settled, children would come to salvation, new children would adjust well to their new home and those being adopted would remember the truth they were taught.
