Introducing the global family:
Convenção Brasileira das Igrejas Evangélicas Irmãos Menonitas- Brazil (COBIM)
ICOMB & MWC national member church
We want to thank everyone who participated in the ICOMB Summit and Despertar in Brazil in May 2022. God is creating a new awakening in Brazil and for sure your contribution, either with your presence or with your prayers, is leading COBIM (Mennonite Brethren Convention in Brazil) to a new movement of God.
In September we had the national congress of women with the participation of more than 300 women from different states of Brazil. It was visible the move of God promoting healing, addressing body, soul and spirit.
A week later, we had the national meeting of youth leaders, aimed at aligning the work, listening to the challenges of young people in different regions of Brazil and integration among leaders and prayer time. The leaders were challenged to follow in the footsteps of Jesus, taking young people to God’s presence and making disciples.
In mid-October we held the national congress of pastors and leaders with the theme: This is God’s time for us. More than 170 people participated. We had speakers from COBIM itself who dealt with the subject of our DNA, our identity in Jesus, as people of the Book, of the Kingdom, and of the Church; it is time for healing – we cannot be spiritually healthy if we are emotionally immature; it is time to return to the first love, to God, to the called ones, and to the lost ones; it is time for the church to multiply and to send workers to all the states in Brazil and abroad.
We are deeply blessed by the Lord.
