Ministry Update: Semear (Brazil)

In December, we shared that heavy rains caused much damage at Semear’s JD Panorama garden site. Since then, they have hosted a gathering to begin the restoration process. They enjoyed a wonderful time of fellowship as they worked together to put up a new fence, build four new garden beds, and create a chill-out area where groups can gather.

The community soccer field they had been using is undergoing renovations, so they have had to adapt their facilities to accommodate their sports activities in the interim. The new chill-out area has already come in handy as a spot to serve after-practice snacks to the kids.

They are also having some difficulties with the authorities who oversee the use of the soccer field and are waiting for a decision from the favela leaders as to whether they can continue using it.

Prayer Points

  1. Please pray for the Lord to give Semear favor with the local authorities and allow them to continue using the soccer field for their sports ministries.
  2. Give thanks to the Lord for how quickly they have been able to begin reconstructing the garden and for how many people joined to help.
  3. Please pray for the Lord to use Semear’s ministry to bring many adults, children, and entire families to faith in Him.
  4. Please pray for the Lord to help Semear’s leaders, staff, and volunteers to be encouraged in Him and not grow weary in their labors.
