A church on every corner?

Well, I'm from the "Bible Belt" in the south part of the United States where there was a church just about on every corner. It's not quite the same here. But sometimes I do see a lot of evangelical churches, and the thought crosses my (Allison) mind - "What am I doing here?"

Then, just as quickly as the thought enters my mind, I realize that each little church I see, even if it has 100 members or maybe 250 if it's a huge church - I realize that there may be 30,000 people that live within 1 square mile of that church! 30,000!!!

Ok, so even if there were lots of little church buildings with 100 people - there are still way too many thousands of people NOT going to church, NOT understanding that Jesus Christ came to offer them salvation - "not by works, so that no man can boast - but salvation by grace through faith!!! - Faith in Jesus Christ ALONE! - Not faith in a "saint" or a statue of Mary - but in Jesus Christ alone!!!

Please pray that God would direct our thinking on how to best promote HIS Word and plan of salvation among the people of Baixada Santista area!
