Agita Brasil

Today Agita was a bit different than yesterday. The favela that the kids live in is in much worse condition than the apartments we visited yesterday.

The kids were loud and had a hard time sitting still, so they loved dancing to the music and playing games for candy.

The children had a few games of their own to teach us. They loved to take pictures too!

In the morning, we went and visited some people who have reached out to Restoration Ministries for help and prayer.

We visited three houses yesterday, and we didn't want to be disrespectful, so we didn't take very many pictures. The first woman we visited had so much joy in her heart! When she came out of her house and saw us she said,"Thank Jesus!" She went on to explain how happy she was to see us.

This is Everton, a boy whose house we visited on Tuesday. He lives with his grandma and his brothers in a small apartment.

This is a very typical view from any hill in São Paulo. This makes us very sad to know that a large portion of the 11th largest city in the world is living in poverty. It was explained to us that this hill is used to see when the police are coming, so that drug dealers can get out of the area.

Agita provides an escape for the kids that live in these areas. The kids get a chance to learn about Jesus, dance, and win candy during this program. The home visits and Agita both show the kids and families that there IS hope and a future in Jesus Christ, and that He loves them very much.

Please keep praying for us as we continue our home visits and working at Agita with kids. Pray that we would keep up our energy and patience, and that Jesus would shine through our actions and our words!
