Since the beginning of the global coronavirus pandemic Brazil has recorded the second highest number of Covid-19 related deaths in the world behind the USA. The high level of deaths has caused considerable fear and anxiety across the country.
Sadly, on the morning of Tuesday 30th March, Pastor Geraldo, one of the pastors in the Apostolic Church in Brazil passed away from Covid-19 at the age of just 62. He had been in hospital only a short time before he died. Tragically, just a few days later on Saturday 3rd April his wife Sueli also died from Covid.
The couple have 3 daughters, Lisley, Thalita and Sulamita and 2 sons, Daniel and Tiago. Please pray for the family as they grieve the sudden loss of both their parents in such a short period of time.
Pastor Geraldo served with his wife and family, in pastoral ministry for over 30 years in a number of churches in the province of Minas Gerais. He was also a member of the General Council of the Apostolic Church in Brazil. Pray also for the church in Brazil who mourn the loss of much-loved colleagues and friends.
