This 28th of November, on the first Sunday of Advent, after a process of formation and discernment, 18 people (single and married) made their first covenant commitment to the community in Brazil. The new community is called Terra de Santa Cruz, the name given to Brazil in the colonial period.

This small group thus begins (as a prospective group) its way to become a formed member community of the Sword of the Spirit in the future. This is the first SOS community in the city of São José dos Campos and this country. 

This covenant is the fruit of the labor or many people who, in various moments, have served this city as well as the initiative of the Proyecto Baluarte Brasil (Bulwark Project Brazil) launched by the Iberoamerican Region. Eugenio Regidor, his wife Silene and Ronny Gomez, are currently walking together with the new community members who also keep their outreach (Grupo Kairos). There is a plan to launch in the near future another outreach to married couples.

Let us continue praying that the Lord will bring all these projects to success.
