I hope you will understand me later. I am thanking everyone who came. We hope to meet you together. I hope you will come again. I hope that you will not be offended of what I am saying.

It is such a delight to see our preachers face to face. In 2 John 1:12 it says,

 “Having many things to write unto you, I would not write with paper and ink: but I trust to come unto you, and speak face to face, that our joy may be full.”

2nd MCGI Thanksgiving in Brazil Marks Memorable Days

Como eu conheci o programa do irmão Eli Soriano 

As told by Irmão Tiago da Silva Sousa

I remember when my workmate let me watched the program O Caminho Antigo back in 2011. I find it so unusual. First, he showed me two pastors preaching here in Brazil. They were asking for money.

Then he showed me Bro. Eli and I immediately noticed that he was preaching in different manner. He was not asking for money but was reading everything in the Bible.

I was not attending any church events in the Catholic Church since my first communion, so I didn’t know much about what is happening in religions. It was only when I watched Bro. Eli attacking the pastors asking for money that I got to see things more clearly

What follows is that I got baptized after completing my indoctrination to the Members Church of God International (MCGI) on October 12, 2011. The recent thanksgiving held in Florianopolis was my 2nd International Thanksgiving held in Brazil. I would like to share with you my memorable days with the recently concluded thanksgiving here.

Ação de graças do Corpo no Brasil – dias inesquecíveis

When I got to the venue on April 2nd, lots of brethren had arrived.

Brethren upon arrival

I saw many of the Filipino brethren I met here in Brazil last PNK I felt so happy to see them all again, all the way in my 11 hours journey from Campinas to Florianópolis I was longing to see them. I am anxious to meet them again and offer thanksgiving to God with them because they’re coming from different parts of the world like the Philippines, USA, Canada, the brethren from Europe and from Middle East. Our neighbours here in Latin America like Argentina, Bolivia, Equator, El Salvador, Mexico, Colombia and so many other countries.

Recordação ...
Recordação …

It was all so exciting and I couldn’t wait to get there to be part of the prophecy of the Bible written in Zechariah 8:21 cause we learned the will of God to have His people from around the globe gathering together before Him and fortunately the event was held in my country so I was blessed to have the opportunity to be there.

Specially, I was happy to see brother Eli and brother Daniel again.

And then when I got there and meet them, I saw many of the brethren that I was expecting to see and talk to and took pictures with them. It’s a great experience and I feel really good! After a few hours we attended the Lord’s Supper as the Bible taught. We learned an amazing topic from our faithful preacher,  Brother Eli.

Next day, 3rd of April, it was a great Thanksgiving opening as we sang hymns of different languages like our own Portuguese, English and Tagalog. After the opening prayer Bro. Eli and Bro. Daniel started the topic.

We, Brazilian brethren, hearing the topic being translated in Portuguese and the Spanish speaking brethren heard the topic in Spanish as the preaching was being done in tagalog.

Bro. Eli preached in Tagalog but the most amazing thing is that it was being translated in Portuguese for Brazilians and Spanish for Spanish speaking people.

ts7We perfectly understand the things being taught to us with God’s help as brother Eli said, there is God’s spirit to teach. The translation from our Filipino brethren who speaks Portuguese and Spanish were great and it is being read in the Bible in our language. It was not all Tagalog because Bro. Eli and Bro. Daniel speak some Portuguese,too!
