Why We’re Here
First of all, I hope everyone’s weekend is off to a great start!!!!
We bought a new printer yesterday, and look who decided he like the box that it came in:
So yesterday, Alex asked me why me family’s in Brasil. So, I thought I’d dedicate today’s post to what we do here.
Since 2004, we’ve lived in Recife, Brasil,population of about 4 million, located on the northeaster coast of the country, about 9 degrees south of the equator. My parents are missionaries here, and originally came to help out with a children home located in one of the poorer areas of our city. While there, they made visits to families in the surrounding community and felt called by God to start work there. About 3 and a half years ago we went to the States on furlough, and when we came back, we began working in this community, called Dois Unidos.
Here’s some pictures:

Building a Church
Over the past 3 years, God has helped us build 25 houses, a church, operate a food bank and soup kitchen along with another church nearby, open a music studio, have activities for children in the community, and start a soccer project. We work with Brazilians, and have a couple of US work teams come every year to complete special projects. God is good and everything we do is because of Him. We’re missionaries with South America Mission and have been for about 3 years.
I love living here! Its home to me! =D If any of ya’ll have any more questions about us being here, feel free to ask them!!!! =D
Hope you have an awesome weekend!
