From Horoscopes to Devotions

Most of Katia’s colleagues at the call center where she works in Brazil were checking the daily horoscope, wondering how their day would go.

But Katia spent time reading something else: Cada Dia, the daily devotional put out by Back to God Ministries International’s Portuguese ministry team.

“Something amazing happened,” Katia recently reported to BTGMI.

She had made it a habit to leave Cada Dia visible on her desk each day. One day when her coworkers couldn’t find the newspaper to read their horoscope, a colleague asked if she could read Katia’s devotional for that day. Then others picked it up.

Katia observed: “Each person was surprised with the message that was coming to her eyes. Even a colleague who follows Candomblé (a religion of African origin) took the booklet and read it. . . . Now my coworkers compete for the Cada Dia to see what it says each day!”

As a result Katia requested 10 additional copies of the monthly Cada Dia to share with her coworkers. “I am very happy about this. I sold nothing, but I saw victory with the interest in God’s Word—which is truthful and not guesswork, like a horoscope.”

With support from BTGMI donors, nearly 30,000 people in Brazil receive the printed Cada Dia daily devotional each month.
