Each Caleb invites a friend to participate and thus the group multiplies. Bruna Silva lives on the coast of Rio Grande do Sul in the city of Tramandaí and was able to experience this in 2019.
“My mother has a small market in the neighborhood where I live and one day the Calebs stopped by and we started talking,” she says. “They invited me to participate in the project and soon afterward they offered me a Bible study.”
Silva accepted Christ as her Savior and was baptized on April 20, 2019, during Holy Week. Today she is a young leader of the Imbé church and comments on how this project changed her life.
“The Caleb Mission for me is the most wonderful project of the church; it represents everything for me–my passion,” she says. “Through the Mission I had an encounter with the Lord Jesus,” he shared.
But Silva did not stop there. Months later, she developed a friendship with Pedro Godoy, her new neighbor, and extended the invitation for him to learn about the project as well. He accepted the invitation and also started studying the bible with Silva.
On Jan. 30, 2021, Godoy gave himself to Christ. The baptism took place on Tramandaí beach, and Caleb friends attended the ceremony held by Pastor Tiago Fraga, leader of Adventist youth for the south of Rio Grande do Sul.
“When I saw him being baptized, I felt a great emotion,” Silva says. “It was inexplicable! I feel happy because it is one more soul for Jesus, a person who gave himself to Christ.”
