Jeff & Crystal's Brazil Mission Trip

Last year, Crystal went on a misson trip to Sao Paulo, Brazil where she helped Restoration Ministries & Oak Hills Church put on a Kids Art Camp and Women's Retreat.

Restoration Ministries focuses on bringing hope to children and their families living in the “favelas” (slums) of Sao Paulo. Most who live in the slums are plagued by hunger, disease and poverty, and many are scarred by the devastating effects of prostitution, drugs, and domestic violence. Founded by Brazilian nationals, Restoration Ministries seeks to build trusting relationships and offer practical services and programs that restore hope to broken lives.

This year, we've both been invited to serve. Crystal has been asked to teach English classes to kids and adults, and Jeff has been asked to help Restoration Ministries create new videos to promote the organization's programs. We feel God is leading us to go and serve Him and His church body in this way and we are excited to be a part of a ministry that will provide love to these children’s lives.

Crystal and Jeff will need to pay for airfare, food and lodging, and video equipment which will be donated to Restoration Ministries at the end of the trip so they can continue to create video content on their own. Should we be fortunate enough to raise more than our goal, any additional funds will be donated to the ministry and its existing needs.Would you prayerfully and with your family consider joining us in this effort?

Thank you for your interest and support! Blessings!
