A group of 18 staff and students from our Belo Horizonte ministry ventured to Fortaleza, Brazil in January to work side-by-side with a Christian orphanage and, also, to use this time as a training project for the students.
Alan Andrioni, our UFMG campus director, led the project and has sent us numerous messages about how well it has gone. All the components - from working with the orphanage, to Bible study with the students and even building vision for a hurting world by participating in a campaign to grow awareness of child sex tourism in Brazil - have really been encouraging to our staff.
The team is finishing up already and heading home. We thank God for this opportunity and for what He will do through it in our student's lives.
We are trying to raise a small amount, $1500 to help off-set the student's costs. Would you consider giving above and beyond to this project? If so, you can send any checks made to Campus Outreach, and 1599 Brazilian Summer Project on the memo line to:
