In July of 2015 we purchased a piece of land with a building already on it. After renovating the building, in May of 2016 we opened our first Day School for 50 poor children. They receive teaching about school subjects, sports, music, God and Jesus. The first day was emotionally overwhelming for everyone involved. The children were given free food, free nice clothes and lots of love and hope for the future. Impressions ...
As we work with the poor children in Brazil, we constantly gain more experience and learn on the way. We have realized, that the need for Daycare Centers as well as orphanages is big. After much prayer, we knew that at this moment we must learn all we can through opening Daycare Centers, so that when we open the first orphanages, we will have no unnecessary obstacles. Since it has now been discovered that the need in the whole country is so great, our new goal is to build 100 orphanages in Brazil.
Reinhard and Debi have visited Natal, another city in the Northeast of Brazil, and were shocked by the terrible need among children there. Our hearts are so broken for these poor children. God connected us with a wonderful pastor and his wife who have a true burden to work among these needy children, but lack resources. After much prayer, we decided to start our second project. At the end of 2016, we purchased an orphanage with about 20 children, which has been renovated. In September 2017 we started renovation work for the Day Center in Natal.
