[story from Brazil Mission FB “

In Brazil, getting a government job is like winning the lottery. It is almost impossible to be fired, and you are set for life (at least that’s what people think). The local pastor, Pr. Laylton, had been working a government job and trying to pastor part time. It was difficult and frustrating. A while back, he got a call from another Church and was on the point of accepting it. He longed to be able to dedicate himself full time to ministry, but Esperança didn’t have the money to support him full time. When they found out he would be leaving, the entire congregation showed up at his doorstep and begged him to stay. They gave up the building they were renting, and to save money they began to meet in the garage and veranda of one of the elders. They managed to set aside some money to build him a proper study in his humble little house. With the help of the federation of Brazilian churches, they managed to pay him a full time salary. Pr. Laylton is now able to dedicate himself full time to the work of ministry. How beautiful to see the Lord providing for His Church!
What is especially striking is that Rev. Laylton gave up his government job in order to dedicate himself to the ministry. In Brazilian terms, this is a significant sacrifice. Thank the Lord for godly, faithful believers who are willing to sacrifice much in order to follow the Way!” Oct 19 2015
