Daily Learning and Living
In the Unconditional Love of Jesus Christ
Project Moses Brazil Mission, April 10-20
Over forty years ago, a young seminary student in Southern Brazil was given the task to go into a “favela” (slum) area and see how he could help the community. This particular location was so poor that the police would not even enter the area and there were no schools for any children. The seminary student convinced the parents to build a one-room schoolhouse and the Project Moses Mission began.
The vision was always to provide a Christ centered education and provide better living conditions for the poor. The name Project Moses originated because the seminary student dedicated his life to helping these people rise up from both spiritual and physical poverty. Monthly food programs, health care, clothing drives, and even home construction projects are integral parts of the mission outreach. Today there are three schools with approximately 2,500 students.
Since 1999, groups of Americans have provided valuable support to Project Moses. The mission teams bring duffle bags full of much needed school supplies, donated clothing, and other gifts. They also perform skits, play games, help with construction projects, and hug a whole lot of kids. In general, the week long mission has become an annual event that has raised thousand of dollars of support, distributed countless donations of food and clothing, provided much needed encouragement for the teachers, develop treasured lifelong relationships between Americans and Brazilians, and most importantly helped create faith in Jesus Christ!
April 10th through April 20th will be the first year Lutheran Church of the Cross will join in this mission outreach. This is a big step for our little congregation, but we desire to take this step of faith to help reach these precious children with the love of Jesus! Thank you for your prayers and generosity!
