Espírito Santo, BRAZIL—From January 8-28, 2017 the Canvassing Department in Espírito Santo held a Summer Canvassing Program. Twenty-seven individuals participated in the 20-day long program. Participants spent time distributing literature and selling and delivering books door-to-door. There was also time for recreation and participating in the local church programs during the weekend.

 

In just twelve days the group had sold 121 books, distributed 8,000 tracts and 121 Bibles, and established 400 contacts. The event was a blessing to its participants leaving them refreshed and blessed to have been a part of the canvassing work. May the Lord bless the participants and each contact made.

 

"Jesus is calling for many missionaries, for men and women who will consecrate themselves to God, willing to spend and be spent in his service. O, can we not remember that there is a world to labor for? Shall we not move forward step by step, letting God use us as his helping hand? Shall we not place ourselves on the altar of service? Then the love of Christ will touch and transform us, making us willing for his sake to do and dare," {CE, 18}.

 

"Many, both men and women, can do an excellent work by canvassing for books that are full of direct, simple instruction on practical godliness," {CM, pg. 18}.
