I taught thousands of workshops, lectures, courses; I treated thousands of people and, erroneously, believed to be working on behalf of Good, since I “freed” people of demons, witchcraft, etc. But today I understand this was just another one of the devil’s tricks.
I am involved in politics; I ran for councilor and, recently, for congressman, where I received 5,000 votes here in Rio de Janeiro, without any sort of campaign. I didn’t invest in a campaign because I am currently suffering a brutal political persecution that led to me having to sustain the 200 children at my nursery here in the favela of Dende. This happened last year, and I received no help from city hall.
Ever since I decided to turn away from that deceptive lifestyle and begin seeking the One True God, I have been passing through the greatest desert of my life.
But now I know in my heart what is my destiny, which is to serve the Almighty God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit.
I am thankful for a modest pastor… Even though I had a privileged education, owned several businesses, including the largest insurance group in Latin America and spoke 3 languages, I found true wisdom in the pastor whose been helping and guiding me, and showed me the true Word of God.
That’s right, I found myself in a small Universal Church! In the favela, in a fixed up garage, but where the Word of God flows with the force of a thousand armies!
I made sure to send you this email because there are three special reasons you should rejoice:
1- a former servant of the devil (though I did not know what I did was wrong) converted and accepted the Light of God with the help of the Universal Church.
2- this new man wants to serve God, to surrender to the work of the Lord.
3- there is a humble, serious, true man of God in the Dende favela. The Church is more than well represented by Pastor Filipi Michel.
May you always be blessed!
