PROJECT MOSES BRAZIL AUGUST 2018

 

PROJECT MOSES BRAZIL MISSION 2018 (AUGUST 3 to 13)

 

By God’s grace, we have completed our third mission trip to Brazil.  We worked with a local Brazilian Pastor and his Lutheran congregation serving in a very poor community,  Canoas, Rio Grande do Sul. As in past years, we worked in three large elementary schools and one foster care facility.  

Nine members of our congregation, including Pastor Lantz, traveled to Porto Alegre, Brazil, on August 3, 2018 and worked with some of the poorest families until August 12, 2018.  Our mission team partnered with a Brazilian pastor who has dedicated his life to assisting families living in a very poor community.  The team also worked with three local Brazilian elementary school principals who serve 2,500 school children.

The mission is called Project Moses because Moses led people out of slavery and into a promised land of freedom.  Likewise, our team works to encourage, inspire and provide resources for the Brazilians who are working with these poverty-stricken families every day.
