That is a portrait of the people living in the sprawling slums (favelas) of Rio's hillside- harassed and helpless. Terror is always lurking at their doorstep and they don't know who to trust. The drug lords? The police? Their neighbor?
The following is an excerpt from the Restore Brazil Vision Doc:
But thankfully, it doesn't end there.
"Then he said to his disciples, 'The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.'" -Matthew 9:37-38
"This month we are meeting with two couples that are going to officially begin a church in Sitio - Cidade de Deus [City of God slum]. There are numerous coaching opportunities as well. Many of the pastors need additional training and resources, and I am doing the best I can to help."
