Maria Machado


Sunday, 16 March 2008, Maria Machado left this world behind, and entered the presence of her Savior.

Her friends affectionately called her Nega. We called her Mãe. She is dearly missed, but we rejoice for her. For the past two years we have prayed every night that God would grant Dona Maria health and strength, and now our prayer has been answered. She exchanged her frail earthly body for glorified eternal body and is praising her Lord Jesus with a capacity she never knew before. To die is gain.
