Members of the DIASPORA CLUSTER (BRAZIL) share, “May 23 – 26 is our Sixth Annual meeting of RENACI (National Network for the Evangelism and Support of the Calon and Roma). Pray with us as we travel and meet with other Brazilian and Calon missionaries, pastors, leaders and volunteers, who work among the Roma and Calon people throughout Brazil to plan, train and fellowship. One worker will be leading a session on children’s work and another worker will lead a session on storying and story sets. Every year our meeting grows with new churches and individuals, who feel God calling them to reach the Calon and Roma of Brazil. Intercede that the Lord will bless this time with wisdom and guidance as we make strategic plans to reach the Calon people.”
