Missionary Moments – April 15

ERIC and RAMONA REESE serve in Brazil. When “James,” a Brazilian known to call upon evil spirits, lost his home and family to floodwaters, he begrudgingly took refuge in the Baptist church. When James arrived at the church, he asked Eric many antagonistic questions. In turn, Eric asked James how he was coping with the hurt of what had happened and offered to pray for him. Soon the two men were hugging and crying. Eric believes that as Christians, we need to be closer to the areas where people hurt and be there to extend a hand as if it were Christ Himself. We are the hands and feet of Christ to people like James and others around the world, as we faithfully give to missions through CP. Pray for James to grow in his walk and for the Reeses as they live out the love of Christ in Brazil.
