So you may look at this title and say there is no way this can be true, we promise you it is. Today started off at this beautiful church called Agua Viva (Living Water.) It is a very large church that planted over 30 churches in the past year in the São Paulo region and has a membership of around 7,000. Pastor Galli is a very humble man whose heart is to see Christians dwelling in a loving community that is passionately seeking the very heart of God. The first part of the day we spent out on the streets evangelizing, but I was told it was very dangerous and we shouldn't wear purses or jewelry or even wear nice clothes because people might try to steal things from us. This meant I was not going to bring my photography equipment, so I brought Pastor Gwen's point-and-shoot and only took pictures when I felt okay to do so, but I did get some good shots. Here are a few:
the conclusion, part 2, coming tonight... :)
Love and Blessings!
