On October 26th through November 8th, we were tremendously blessed by the visit of Team 17 from Fields of Harvest Church in Baytown, Texas. Pastors David and Martha Cochran, along with 10 church members, traveled over 3,000 miles from Texas to Bujaru to work with our family on a construction project at our river church in Bujaru. Many of you may have seen our previous blogs which shared of the work that was being accomplished on the jungle road to our river church. The highlight of the two weeks with the Fields of Harvest Team was the completion of this road. The city of Bujaru helped with providing tractors, graders and dump truck loads of gravel while the team worked around the clock to install 15 light posts, light fixtures and reflectors, and electrical wiring for electricity along the road and to the church property. (Up until now, we have been using a generator for electricity during church services.) After two weeks of hard work, we thank the Lord for a beautifully lit jungle road that leads from one of the city streets in Bujaru to our church along the bank of the Guamá River. We are overwhelmed with God’s goodness and faithfulness as He continues to make a way for many to hear of His love and hope through Jesus! Other construction projects included building wooden walkways from the church to the river dock and around the church property. The walkways are especially needed in the rainy season when tropical rainstorms cause flooding along the river banks. The walkways were finished just in time as this past week we have had heavy downpours of rain each day! We also praise God for the lives of 10 new believers who were baptized in Bujaru and Castanhal during the time the Fields of Harvest Team was in Brazil.
Over the past 2 weeks at our church service in Bujaru, we have had two new families and 3 people give their lives to Jesus. We thank the Lord and you for the lasting fruit the God is bringing to the harvest field of Brazil!
Love, the Toth Family
