Brazil 2013

The Final Two Days
The team split into two groups-one went to a nursing home and one went to an orphanage. Both are places the local church regularly ministers. Sarah joined the group who went to the orphanage. There they gave toys, diapers, and other supplies to the 20+ babies who live there. The travelers loved playing with and ministering to the little ones. At the nursing home, the travelers were able to pray one-on-one with the residents and even enjoyed a birthday party for one of them. The travelers loved the hands-on ministry time with these beautiful people.

That evening everyone loved the farewell dinner. You could feel the love and unity in the group as Marilyn and Sarah entertained testimonies from travelers. The following day was a free day for the group to do last minutes sight-seeing and shopping.

The trip was a wonderful success and this particular group grew especially close as the days passed. Marilyn, Sarah, the staff and travelers returned blessed by this beautiful country and it’s spirited, lovely people.

On this day the travelers toured Sugar Loaf Mountain–a very uniquely shaped mountain that you can ascend in a cable car. Once at the top they saw the most spectacular views of the Rio harbor and the Christ the Redeemer statue. These views further emphasized the tour theme of “Breathtaking Brazil.”

After this tour, the group split into two groups to do some humanitarian outreach projects. One of the groups went to a local nursing home and worked with members of the church where the healing meetings have been and the other group wen to an orphanage.

On Sunday Marilyn, Sarah and the travelers ministered at a church in Rio. Sarah taught in the morning about faith and Marilyn taught in the evening about healing and the four wise things of Proverbs 30:14. Again the worship was fulled with passion and fire and many responded to the calls for salvation, Holy Spirit Baptism, and healing. Several people were able to testify about wrists, backs, and tumors and warts being healed.

The crowd was energized and full of faith! There was a spirit of unity and love among all that was almost tangible!

After breakfast, the group traveled on to Rio de Janeiro and was joined by Sarah Bowling. They toured Corcavado mountain where the famous stature of Christ stands on top. This is one of the new man-made wonders of the world. It was truly an awe-inspiring sight.

That evening was the second healing meeting. The church was filled with about 2,000 people. The worship was very lively–filled with passion and firs. Again, many responded to the calls for healing, salvation and Holy Spirit Baptism. Marilyn preached on what it means to be God’s beloved. The evening was filled with warmth, unity and passion as the travelers laid hands on the people who cam forward and miracles healings flowed.

The first healing meeting was amazing and powerful. The church was filled to capacity and Marilyn had a powerful word from the Lord and many people responded to the altar call for healing, Holy Spirit Baptism, and Salvation. There were two dramatic healings: A woman had a tumor on the roof of her mouth and when prayed for, it reduced in size by at least half. Another woman said she believed she received a new uterus.

It was an amazing start to this trip’s series of healing meetings and the anticipation for what God is going to do during the rest of the trip is high.

Today Marilyn and the travelers will be touring the newest natural wonder of the world–the Iguassu Waterfalls. The waterfalls are located right on the border of Brazil, Argentina, and Paraguay. They will have the opportunity to take a boat ride at the bottom of the falls and walk along the scenic walkways the top where they will see where these three countries meet. And tonight is the first healing meeting of the trip. Check back soon for more pictures from the field and amazing updates.
