Isabella and I (Sarah) have just returned from a 4-week long trip to Brazil with the Art Ministry and theatre company “Art’s Creative Heart”. We were a team of 18 people, and now that the team members who are married have come back, the other 10 continue to minister in northern Sao Paulo in a city called Votuporanga.
During the 3 1/2 weeks that we were in Sao Paulo (in the cities of Campinas and Monte Mor) we reached our to Brazilian children, youth and adults, through artistic presentations, door-to-door and one-on-one evangelism, and through supporting local churches. We visited many favelas inviting children and parents to attend our musical comedy, Welandia, which they did each time as well as presenting the comedy and our other play “The Search” in several primary and high schools. Our team evangelized through drama and clown plays in evangelism events as well as speaking with prostitutes out on the street. We went door-to-door handing out bibles and spoke to anyone who would listen about God’s love for the lost.
This really was a remarkable trip and it would take a long time to explain and detail all that God did. God’s faithfulness is never ending and even reached out to Isabella in caring for her health (she got sick several time on the trip) and providing top-notch medical attention, medication, diapers, milk and even new dolls. The Brazilian people are so hospitable and welcoming and make you feel like you are a part of their family. I am so thankful to have been a part of this trip and for all that the Lord is doing in Brazil!!!
