Brian and I are very excitedly preparing to take our first mission trip with our church (CrossRoads of Fort Worth) to Rio de Janeiro in March 2014. We will be working wirh Restore Brazil which is an organization committed to reaching the poorest people of Brazil in order to share Christ with them.

We first were introduced to Restore Brazil by our friends Mark and Lizzy Hataway who lived in Rio and worked with Restore Brazil for close to a year before having to return home for health reasons. Their involvement began to open our hearts towards the physical and spiritual needs of the people of Rio. 

 We will be in Rio de Janeiro for 7 days, where we will spend most of our mornings leading a Bible study with the children in the slums of Rio (favelas). We will spend the rest of our day ministering to the homeless by providing meals and clothing, helping lead worship services for the community and providing resources and encouragement to the leadership of the church.

 We need your support in two ways as we prepare for our trip:

First we would request financial assistance. The total cost for our trip will be $6,000 ($3,000 for each of us). We appreciate any donation that gets us closer to our fundraising goal.

 Second we would also appreciate your prayer support for our team on this trip. Prayer is critical for our trip because we need God to prepare our hearts for Rio and protect us on the ground. Here are some immediate prayer requests as we begin to prepare for our trip:

  • Pray that God would prepare us as we focus on our own faith in Jesus as we get ready for our trip
  • Pray that God would use us as his instruments for delivering the Gospel through our words in actions.
  • Pray for our safety and wisdom on the trip

 We are both really excited about this opportunity to minister to the people of Rio de Janeiro and show the God’s love.

Please call or email me if you have any questions about our trip.
