EVENING: Conversations Build Receptivity
(Brazil) In the state of Rio Grande do Sul in South Brazil, university campuses come alive in the evenings when they are flooded with students from the region surrounding Porto Alegre, the capital city. Baptist representatives CHRIS and MELODY JULIAN work among these students of European descent. One approach they take is to bring North American students to Brazil through IMB’s Hands On program. Pray that university students in South Brazil will be receptive to the Gospel and that God will open many doors for Hands On teams through English conversation classes, game nights, Bible studies and just hanging out on campuses. Cooperative Program gifts support missionaries like the Julians and make university-related ministries possible worldwide.

EVENING: Life Lessons
(Canada) BOB and DEBBIE SHELTON came to Canada in 1984 to start a church in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Through 15 years of church planting and pastoring, many life lessons were learned. Today Bob serves as the Send City coordinator for both Calgary and Edmonton. The Calgary-Edmonton corridor is the most urbanized area of Alberta and one of Canada’s four most urban regions as Canadians and immigrants move to the area seeking higher learning at the many universities or fortunes in oil work. Sadly, statistics show that only 5.5 percent of this growing population is evangelical. When you support the Cooperative Program, you are helping bring the Gospel to this area. Pray for local leaders to own and implement a church planting strategy and for partners to join in this work.
