Saturdays at YWAM Sampa!

 At the moment our DTS outreach team is serving at Youth With A Mission (YWAM) Sampa.  The word Sampa is actually a nickname for the city of São Paulo. This is the main YWAM base in São Paulo and is actually located in Francisco Morato, a suburb of São Paulo city.  Every Saturday the missionaries serving at YWAM Sampa recieve the children and teens who live nearby in the poor community surrounding the base. 

The boys participate in a soccer program while the girls take ballet classes.  Our team had a great time helping out this past Saturday with the various activities going on at YWAM Sampa!

Felipe hanging out with the boys.

 Sophia joined in on the ballet class and she LOVED it!

Such beautiful girls!  The ballet teacher comes every Saturday to teach these precious girls. They truly value this time!

Stretching good! 

While the kids participate in the activities, a hearty lunch is being prepared for them.  This is Vera, one of the leaders here at YWAM Sampa, preparing the beans. 

Silas, a volunteer who helps out on Saturdays, also helped with the cooking.

  Our teammates, Josie and Marcia, serving with joy!

Soccer practice continues with running laps around the field. 

The girls continue to dance!

As they say here in Brazil,

 We made paper flowers for the girls!

Lovely little ladies!

 It's lunchtime!
Praying with kids before the meal.

Marcello and Vera serving up a hot meal for the kids.  This awesome couple leads this base and are such a blessing to so many people in the community.  Please pray for their ministry!

Felipe had to take a silly photo too! :-)

It was a great Saturday at YWAM Sampa! 
Please pray for this ministry as they reach out to the poor community surrounding their ministry base.  May God's kingdom come and will be done in the lives of these needy children and their families.
