Our Trip to Piratininga

Just last week we went on a short ministry trip to a small town about four hours away called Piratininga, which is located in the countryside of our state of São Paulo. We were visiting a Youth With A Mission (YWAM) base called Vila do Louvor, or in English, Praise Village.

Our good friends Jonathan and Johanneke (and their three beautiful daughters) recently moved to this missions base from YWAM Belo Horizonte (where we served together for many years).   Jonathan is currently leading the YWAM School of Design at the Praise Village YWAM base, and he invited Felipe to teach several days of class about photography in missions.

Felipe had a great time sharing his knowledge and experience with the students.

While Felipe taught classes about photography, my girls and I enjoyed spending quality time together with Johanneke and her three girls. It definitely was a work mixed with pleasure kind of trip!

The Matias family and the de Jong family spent five full days of both work and play together! Our two families had lots of fun and wonderful fellowship. Sophia especially enjoyed every single minute to the fullest playing with her friends, and she even did not want to return home.

Here are a few photos of some special memories we made during our trip to Piratininga!

We are thankful Felipe had this awesome opportunity to teach about photography in missions at the YWAM Design school, while also being able to spend quality time with dear friends of ours.
We are already planning to return to the Praise Village YWAM base again!
