50 years ago, Arne's grandparents, Arne and Joyce Abrahamson travelled into the deepest corners of the Amazon rainforest, living with and spreading the gospel to some of the poorest people in the world. Over the years, they developed a permanent mission in the state of Porto Velho, which included a church and a school for over 250 children. Joyce is the director and principal of the school, which provides a daily meal and an education for the children, often the only education they will ever receive. Since the death of her husband in 2002, Joyce has been managing the school single-handedly, and at 82, continues to inspire another generation of teachers and students.

Every year, the school celebrates Children's Day with a special lunch time meal and small gifts for each of the children. As part of our wedding celebration, instead of gifts, we'd ask for donations to help make this day the most memorable one yet!

With Thanks, Arne and Stacey
