In recent months we have seen a significant increase in the young assembly in Aguai, 50 km from us. Nine people (four couples, and the mother of one of the men) were contacted through literature work - most were Roman Catholics who have since been saved, another couple was already saved but meeting in a denomination.

After attending the meetings for some months, they have all been baptized and received into fellowship in the Aguai assembly. We appreciate your prayers for this young assembly (they began breaking bread in March of 2015). They were just thirteen in fellowship, so they are overjoyed at this significant increase the Lord has granted them.

In Porto Ferreira, it is encouraging to see that the little group of ten believers in that town has now grown to thirteen. After much prayer and waiting on the Lord, they began to meet as a local assembly on the first Lord's Day of October, a year ago, when they Broke Bread for the first time. Please pray that the Lord might guide them.

The small assembly in Casa Branca continues to struggle on with just five believers in fellowship. A young couple there recently professed to be saved, coming from a denominational background. After studying assembly principles with them, they requested to be baptized and received in fellowship, and it is with great joy that we witnessed their baptism on Lord's Day, 11th of March. Please pray for that small assembly.

We also appreciate your prayers for the literature work. Now and again the Lord allows us to hear of blessing received through this work, and we trust that even future generations might benefit from it if the Lord tarry. We have printed another volume of the Ritchie OT Commentaries (Volume 14 - Ecclesiastes, Song of Songs and Lamentations), which means that six volumes, of a total of 19, are now ready. The next one to be printed, DV, will probably be volume 10 - Ezra, Nehemiah, and Esther. This year we also hope to publish another of the Assembly Testimony "Glory" books (The Glory of the Lord's Death) and continue with the publication of "O Caminho," a free quarterly magazine.
