The General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church in Brazil began its work on Saturday evening, July 19. The Rev. Dr. Augustus Nicodemos was elected Vice-Moderator. I had the joy and privilege of hearing him preach on Sunday morning, July 20 at Igreja Presbiteriana Marinas Praia Sul in Natal.
Then on Sunday evening, July 20, I preached the opening worship service of the General Assembly. Organizers announced that 6000 were in attendance.
My translator was Dr Valdeci dos Santos, who was my student at RTS Jackson and is now a leader in the IPB and teaching at the Andrew Jumper Center.
