Days ago I wrote about the tremendous opportunity that the Lord is giving us to bring to Fortaleza Dr. Ben Abraham, a Jewish Polish survivor of four concentration camps during the Second World War (1939-1945). He miraculously escaped the genocide brought by Hitler, despite losing almost all his relatives (

We will have a special MEETING OF FRIENDS OF ZION on Wednesday, September 7, when he tell you about their own experiences in concentration camps, and also on Saturday, September 10, he will conduct a lecture on Israel's War of Independence (1947-1948).
Dr. Abraham is very friendly, and he and his wife put themselves completely at our disposal so we could make a schedule with the greatest number of commitments. Therefore, we ask help of the brethren to allow more talks and events. Dr. Elpidio Nogueira (Fortaleza City Councilman and a believer in Jesus Christ) will endeavor to make a City Hall tribute to Dr. Ben Abraham. We also intend to have a ceremony in the Legislative Assembly. So I count on your prayers and help in ideas, plans and contacts.
Some brothers, knowing the high costs (airfare, hotel accommodation, food, transportation and distribution), were willing to help bring this project of Dr. Ben Abraham to the City of Fortaleza, and asked me to give a bank account number to deposit their contributions. The information is provided below, and I would request that, that if you make a deposit, please let me know by email, so that we can make an accounting of expenditures and contributions.
Above all, thank you for your support, for emails sent with encouragement and asking for information on how to help. Also, praise God for the words of support and commitment to pray for this project.
May the Lord richly bless you as He promised to bless those who bless
