Update on Portuguese Work
June 9, 2011
From Jorge de Campos – Portuguese Report
We are pleased to report that we have had a steady increase in demand for Portuguese booklets over the last few months. In fact, we have had to reprint seven different booklets ahead of budget and in greater quantities than initially expected, and will have to reprint another three more booklet titles over the next week or two.
The booklets that seem to be most requested are the basic doctrinal booklets. The ones with most demand are:
- Heaven and Hell – What Does the Bible Really Say?
- The Sabbath – Sunset to Sunset
- What Happens After Death?
Others, also in demand, include such booklets as:
- The Fundamental Beliefs
- Jesus Christ – the True Story
- Transforming Your Life
We would like to ask you to continue praying that God may continue to bless our efforts of preaching the Gospel of the Kingdom of God to the Portuguese-speaking people around the world, and that He may add laborers as He sees fit. The bulk of the requests have been from Brazil.
There has also been an increase of e-mail from Brazil with specific queries, and we even had one person phone from Portugal asking for information about local services in Lisbon.
