Want to join our team?

We have a total of six people on our São Paulo team, so far...
Here is a recent team photo taken at our first official team meeting!



Do YOU want to join our team?
If you have a burden to personally share God's love through working with kids living in slums, or if you would like to participate in outreaches to street kids who frequent an area of São Paulo called Crackland, we invite you to PRAY about joining our team.  

All God needs is a willing vessel to be His hands and feet to the many hurting ones in our world.  Will you pray about joining together with us to expand His kingdom in São Paulo, Brazil?
Pray, seek the Lord about it, and please get in touch with us! :-)



If you can't physically come to be a member of our team, you can still join our team in other ways.
Here's how!

1. PRAY! 
You can join us in prayer as we work towards establishing our ministry in São Paulo.  
Please pray for our team - for much wisdom, guidance, and God's miraculous provision as we step out to serve Him.

Pray for the children and families living in the slums where we are going to work.
The communities are called Jardim São Carlos and Jardim São Jorge. You can also pray for the many hurting people going to Crackland to use drugs.  Pray for hope and transformation! 



Pray for our finances as a ministry, as we are starting out with absolutely nothing.  Actually we already have a total of 90 Reias (which we earned one night through selling some of Felipe's photography).  This is equivalent to about $37 US dollars.

We have many financial needs, as we still need to purchase a ministry location and set it up to work with children and teens.  And now that leads us to our next point...

2. DONATE!
You can join our team by giving financially to this cause or through giving donations of school supplies or other various practical items needed to help start a ministry.  While we are in the USA if you want to pass on any donations to us, we will gladly accept them - as long as they are not too ridiculously large in size, as we must bring them back to Brazil.

Financial donations in the USA can be sent to:
YWAM P.O. Box 3000, Garden Valley, TX 75771, USA
Please include a note designating the gift to: YWAM Belo Horizonte - Center, Brazil, 

and the project name:  São Paulo Project

WANT TO LEARN MORE?
As I mentioned before, from November until the end of March, we will be in the USA.  If you would like for us to share about our missions work at your church, small group, Bible study, or Sunday school class, please get in touch with us at: laura.felipe.matias@gmail.com.

Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or wish to learn more.
We are just an email away!

God Bless you and thank you for your interest in joining our team.
Together we can share the love of Christ with many Brazilian children living in at-risk situations!
