A little from: Niópolis, Rio

 
Posted by Picasa

My heart continues to beat intensely for Rio. It was here that we had the opportunity to participate in ministering with what the church was already doing among the favelas in Rio. Favelas, are what Brazilians call the slum communities within their city hills. Working alongside teens and adults that we passionate about this ministry really marked and stretched me. I can still remember and hear the prayers of some of the teens as we walked and stopped at homes to pray with families and give them food basket for a month; their prayers of hope, healing and transformation for them and their children.
