Expansion and reconciliation

Convenção Brasileira das Igrejas Evangélicas Irmãos Menonitas (COBIM – the Mennonite Brethren church in Brazil) held a conference in October. They experienced the presence of God for new structures and refining their commitment to mission. Here is a picture of Pastor Reginaldo Valim leading the church in prayer. Years of prayer for repentance and renewal have resulted in a great move of God. The conference was held under the topic “Expansion and Reconciliation.” God is providing growth in COBIM. Members were called to be open for this expansion and for the work of reconciliation between people and God, and people and others.
