MY FIRST CONTACT

My fi rst contact with the Word of God was through a New Testament placed by the Gideons 16 years ago. It was a copy with the word Porto Alegre Camp stamped on it. I have no idea where I got it. Through the reading of the New Testament I surrendered my life to the Lord Jesus, in spite of my Catholic family. A pastor from the Assemblies of God Church started visiting me. One day my mother told him, ‘You, born-again Christians don’t quarrel, right? So, don’t come back here anymore to talk to my son, or else you’re going to be beaten up with a broomstick!’ The Pastor would stand at the steps of the staircase that gives access to the house, but he didn’t stop seeing me. Today

my parents and seven brothers are baptized and are serving the Lord, and I am a pastor at the Assemblies of God Church in my city.
