Family Conference in Brasilia, Brazil
Rose and I were invited to speak in Brasilia, Brazil at a Family Conference at a training school for the Biblical Counseling Coalition. The purpose of our trip was to equip biblical counselors on how to counsel in different family situations using the Scriptures only. The different topics that we addressed at this conference were: God’s Purpose for Trials in Our Marriage, The Importance of Unity in Marriage, Counseling Parents of Rebellious Teens, Dealing with Emotional Affairs, and The Marriage Bed. It was such a wonderful time for Rose and I to share with like minded believers who held to the sufficiency of scriptures for every situation we face in this current generation just as Romans 15:4 declares, “For whatever things were written before were written for our learning, that we through the patience and comfort of the Scriptures might have hope.”
We received many positive testimonies of how lives were ministered to during the conference. Manytestified to what 2 Peter 1:3-4 states, “as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue, by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.” The majority of these dear saints were deeply touched by the Holy Spirit and the Word of God that went forth during our time of ministering truth to them for others. God brought about a great repentance and healing to numerous marriages that attended this conference. It was such a blessing for us to be among likeminded believers who hold firmly to the sufficiency of scriptures in dealing with today’s issues in marriages and to witness God’s miraculous work in the hearts of those who attended.
