June 19 - June 27, 2009

This group from Michigan and from New York leave Friday morning to partner in the coming week with our wonderful Brazilian VFC ministry team.

Upon landing in Recife on Saturday, we plan to head right on over to Coche and enjoy a special year end event with the Kids Place kids. After that short-but-sweet reunion, we will get back on our bus and head over to our ministry site for the week, Pitanga Ranch. This is the future home of the VFC campground, Kids Place, and church plant and we are very excited to see God open new doors for our VFC ministry in this part of Brazil.

We hope to be able to update this blog often, but we aren't sure what our internet access will be in this more rural and new setting. In case we don't have internet this coming week, here is a quick rundown of our plans. We will do VBS morning and afternoon Monday through Thursday for 300 kids, an evangelism/first-aid team will be reaching out to the community daily, and we plan to have the mom's dinner and teen outreach as well.

Thanks for your prayers and hopefully we will have a new post up by Sunday.
