In just three weeks I will be heading off on another Compassion adventure. I am certainly looking forward to meeting Laura in Colombia and Cristina in Peru for the first time, and I can’t wait to see Jacqueline in Ecuador again.
My previous knowledge of or connection to Brazil had been minimal. I had made some good Brazilian friends while doing a Summer Camp in Indiana in 2004. Apart from that there was just stuff I’d read:
- Matt Roper leaving England on a mission to the street girls of Belo Horizonte, and forming the organisation Meninadanca.
- Missionary Hosana Brito teaming up with Compassion to fight against the darkness of the suburb of Farol.
- Angela and Nabi Saleh (founders of Gloria Jeans coffee) having a party for their 250 sponsored children.
I wanted to share the “Brazil Story” that God has put into action and the way He has used it to bless me (and others). I have written about the trip in previous posts, so click on September 2012 to the right if you want to read in more detail.
I look forward to sharing the details of the trip with you, as God continues to work through Compassion and the local church to see His Kingdom here on earth.
