Helping The Poor In Sao Vicente

Yesterday we worked with Primeira Igreja Batista Sao Vicente and Igreja Batista Vila Nova Mariana in a community service project in a poor area of Sao Vicente. The project was organized to help poor people in the Humaita area of the city, which is a remote area with many poor people. The churches provided various services to help the poor in the community, including doctors and nurses, psychologists, counselors, and lawyers. They also gave away shoes and clothing.

The event was a great success, and many people were helped with their physical, emotional, as well as spiritual needs. We had the privilege of sharing the speech that we do in the schools, which is about how to have a high quality of life and a good future. In the end we talk about the spiritual life and how to have a personal relationship with God through Jesus. We praise God for the opportunity to participate in this event to help others, and also we praise Him that 17 children and 5 adults accepted Christ and committed their lives to Him.
