“Praise ye the LORD!” ~ A testimony from Brazil

Share This Post

My name is Mary, and I’ve been part of Disciple Nations Alliance for just about six months, now. My favorite part of working with DNA is the privilege of being immersed in God’s amazing work. Every day, I get to talk with people who are being used by God to bring restoration and new life to their communities. It’s easy to see that the devil is active in our world, but we must not forget that it’s not an equal fight! God is always in control, and with his power, his Church is on the offensive — not the other way around.

Jesus said to his disciples,  “I tell you … on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it” (Matt. 16:18).

Here is one example of God working in the lives of people all over the world: In João Pessoa, the poorest and least evangelized part of Brazil, a Christian non-profit called Institute One27 is ushering in the Kingdom of God through a training and mentorship school for young adults and ensuing projects in the community. This video is sure to encourage you; watch it!

“Praise ye the LORD. Praise ye the name of the LORD; praise him, O ye servants of the LORD.” Psalm 135:1

It seems there are more churches and Christians globally than ever before in history. Yet, society and culture seem to be crumbling around us. Where are these believers?
