Leaman Prayer Letter (September 2021)
The last prayer letter introduced the vision for the Soli Deo Gloria Institute of Technology and Discipleship. What has happened over the past five months? A lot of building and dreaming! We plan to call 24 young men for the first semester starting in January of 22.
The strategy is to train these young Brazilian men who have a heart for ministry. In the future, after being trained in technology and theology, they will be ready to go into the nations with a skill and the gospel. They will be fully funded by the tech enterprise. Brazilian workers have access to some countries that North Americans may not enter. These countries desperately need tech workers and they all need the gospel more than anything.
The language training, tech training and theological training can all occur simultaneously over the next years. After their initial training at the SDG Institute they can continue studies while working. These men can be sent into these “closed” countries after they have been fully prepared.
We praise the Lord that we have found a chaplain/administrator for the school. His name is Altimar and he is an elder in the local church here in Aldeia. His oldest son, Aquiles, will most likely be one of the first students of the institute. Please continue to pray for these and other ministry partners to complete the needed team for this Institute of Technology and Discipleship.
Please pray that we can finish all the details of the building soon. We would like to advertise and share with churches across the country this tech/mission opportunity. We plan to invite approved students who have pastoral recommendations in the near future.
We couldn’t serve without you.
Thank you for your giving and service for His glory.
Soli Deo Gloria
