a month in the south of brasil with 70 or so brasilians.. january was a crazy month. it was an incredible time of evangelism, worship, hundreds of people coming to the Lord. a truly amazing experience down south.. although i didn't understand alot of what was going on or couldn't contribute as much as i'd have liked.. God worked in me and in those i was around. over that month i constantly asked God what He wanted me to do in the south.. alot of the time i felt useless and i was confident God had a reason for me being on this project but why? it was incredibly hard at times as i'd spend the entire day feeling as though i accomplished nothing.. and i'd wonder why i was around the world to be just a spectator.. couldn't i have been a prayer warrior back home? but no.. God had a plan. a purpose.. and as our team gathered together at the begining of the last week and encouraged one another to keep going strong.. we prayed a few specific prayers.. one being that we'd feel used by Him the One who listens to our prayers. and over the next week God showed Himself faithful by bringing us to english speaking people who had been disallusioned by the church.. God used us to bring restoration to them.. He also raised up people serving alongside us on the project who'd been crazily affected by our presence.. brasilians who longed to be missionaries and follow God's call.. who for the first time saw that it was possible for people our age to leave everything they know and follow Christ to the ends of the earth.. God had a purpose and i'm just glad He showed it to me..
