His teaching will include an examination of Jesus in the Koran, of the biblical role of Ismael and the significance of this today in the end of time.

Brenda Walsh is the general manager of the New 3ABN Kids Network in the United States. She will be spending a week instructing in the necessity of personal spiritual growth and in prayer. Miss Brenda, as she is affectionately called by children all over the world, will share with the students the tools to have success in God’s essential work of personal evangelism. Her instruction is designed to help the students to gain a more personal relationship with Jesus, because you cannot share with others what you do not have.
This week we will have Ruben Fernandes. He will be instructing on the emerging church movement. He is a very active evangelistic member of the church of Espinho in Portugal, who also runs a corporate enterprise in Porto. The topics he is going to elaborate are: contemplative prayer, spiritual formation and the biblical issues found in various developments within and outside the adventist church. The purpose of this instruction is to provide the students with a sound and solid basis from which to access deceptive practices which sometimes we face. His teaching is derived from the Bible and the spirit of prophecy standpoint.
Last week we had Jón Steffanson from Iceland. Jón is a PhD candidate completing his thesis on Daniel 8. He instructed the students on the prophecies of Daniel. The purpose of his instruction was not to provide a theological education, but rather to provide landmarks and guideposts for the students to better communicate these important points to others who are seeking truth.
Sebastian Matula, from Sweden and Hungary (now a pastor in Finland), will provide for the next two weeks extended instruction on Daniel and Revelation, prophecy and the Adventist faith. We will also be looking at the Three Angels’ Message and the seven phases of the judgement. Why we study Prophecy? Why the Book of Revelation? What is the gospel? The hour of His judgement has come! Are you afraid of the judgement? The Prophetic Structure of Daniel and Revelation, Antichrist’s attack on the Sanctuary, Daniel 8 and the Sanctuary’s restoration, 1844 and the last days. What is worship in the context of the 1st Angels’ Message and creation. Revelation 17 and Babylon: “come out of her”, a New World Order and a new economic order; have you come out of her? Third Angels’ message and the end of time.
We went with the church to Benavente to distribute Outreach materials. It was a nice experience for us. And we were able to give out a lot of books.

“(…) no man cometh unto the Father, but by Me.” John 14:6
In the past Sabbath, two of the girls that have been studying the Bible every week decided to come to the Adventist Church and it was the first time of one of the girls! It has been very encouraging to watch their spiritual journey.
They are sincere and want to know more about Jesus and they desire to be faithful like He is and to keep His commandments, although both of them recognized that it’s impossible to please God without His guidance and strength. One of them said: “I need to be honest… I can’t do it, but I want”. Their commitment now is to pray and ask God for His strength so that they can be faithful to Jesus and obey Him!
“I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.” Philippians 4:13
What has been our focus in life? May we look daily upon Jesus!
“There is a problem…”
A couple days ago something very unexpected happened. A gypsy men with twenty years old, he showed his interest in start studying the Bible, “but”, he said, “there is a problem… I don’t know how to read”. He gave an explination to that, when he was a child he had some troubles in the school that hindered him from continuing to go to school, he started having kind of a trauma concerning this…
He was asked if he wanted help, that he could start learning how to read so that after some time he could start reading the Bible by himself! Immediately, he accepted and said that nowadays, he regrets about having that attitude, in the past, of leaving the school. He believes in God and told that he asked Him the following: “Lord, if You want me to learn how to read, please, bring someone able to help me” this prayer was one week before he finds a person that wanted to help him.
His cousin is eleven years old and both of them came for the Bible studies we’ve had, and Manuel (the young men, who is learning how to read) he never misses his classes, he had three classes already and by God’s grace it’s possible to see some progress during the classes! All this has been a blessing for all of us.
If you had the opportunity to read this testimony is because you have this skill of reading, why not enjoying it and why not spend more quality time reading the love letter God left us?
God answers the prayers of His beloved ones, He answers according to His perfect will because He knows what is the best! May we keep all this in our prayer lists.
“For every one that asketh receiveth (…) ”Matthew 7:8
