A Neighborhood In São Vicente

Last week we spoke in the EM Jacob Andrade municipal school in São Vicente. São Vicente is Brazil's oldest city, and was founded in 1532. There are some nice areas of  São Vicente, especially around the beaches, but the majority of the city is made up of poor to middle class neighborhoods and favelas (slums). Here are some photos of the area that we spoke in last week. This neighborhood is typical of many of the areas we minister in, and many Brazilians live in similar areas. There are many problems with crime, drugs, violence, prostitution,... in the favelas and poor neighborhoods. However, there are many wonderful people there that are very humble, and very eager to hear about God's love.
