The Church in Lisbon Partners With Us

Almost as soon as each of us arrived in Portugal, our team jumped right in with the Igreja de Cristo Lisboa (ICL) and they welcomed us and our broken Portuguese with great patience and a kiss on each cheek.

The ladies on the team have attended several baby showers with the ICL this year.

We are active members with ICL, doing things like helping clean the church building, traveling to witness a baptism, helping out with summer camp, attending area-wide women’s events, setting up for a wedding, teaching in various forms, visiting people in the hospital, going to baby showers and other parties, and inviting people into our homes. We go, not just because we need to “practice our Portuguese,” but because we are part of ICL. It is often tiring to go, get out of our comfort zones, and try to communicate, but the blessings that we receive from the patient ears and the loving arms of the church make it that much easier.

ICL has asked us how they can be part of spreading the Gospel in Angola. So, this past Sunday, we gave a presentation, as part of their 2011 vision-casting meeting, about ways they can get involved.

Our 15 minute presentation began with Danny giving a summary of why we are going to Angola and why we need people all over the world to partner with us. Robert then communicated our desire for the church in Lisbon to work alongside us,  encouraged them to think about ways that they could contribute, and gave them ways to stay connected with us through the  internet and by subscribing to our newsletter in Portuguese. Katie talked about how they can use World Bible School (WBS) to reach other Portuguese people and how they can help us by receiving, grading, and responding to WBS students from Angola. Nathan encouraged the members of the church to come and visit us and asked the Angolans of ICL to help us learn more about Angolan culture. Teague invited the church to help us by proofreading the Portuguese materials that we develop and by developing materials themselves for us to use. Then she invited ICL to pray on our behalf, giving them specific ways that they can be praying. Jordan finished off the presentation with a sincere thank you for the help and encouragement they have given us. She expressed our desire to help them in any way we can and ensured them that we will be praying for them as they pray for us. She even shed a few perfectly-timed tears.

This was the first time that each of the ladies have spoken in Portuguese in front of a large group. Although our Portuguese was not perfect, the church was very complimentary and encouraging afterward. Eunice, our language teacher, watched a video of the presentation and was also quick to compliment us on how well we did. It was a meaningful way to practice presenting in Portuguese.

You can watch a 15 minute video of the presentation below. When you watch it, try to imagine what it would be like to speak a language that is not natural to you in front of an audience of people who are native to that language.
