Cubatão, Brazil

Cubatão is another city in the area that we are serving and helping churches to share Christ. Cubatão is an industrial city located about 10 miles north of Santos, and has many oil refineries and petrochemical plants, as well as some steel mills and other factories. There are approx. 120,000 people living in Cubatão, and most people that live there are very poor. In the 80's it was voted one of the most polluted places in the world, and even though the Brazilian government has spent over 1 billion dollars to clean it up, it is still a fairly polluted place. We have already helped a church to share Christ in a school in Cubatão in November, and we are looking forward to seeing what God will do there in the future.
