Gustavo and Karla serve as the leaders of i35 Ministry. As a young man, Gustavo Zanotta was called by God to the Sertão (Desert) in the Northeast of Brazil. After moving there, he met and married Karla who is native to the NE and they recently had their first child Raquel. The Sertão is a vast area of the country and as they were seeking the Lord for a specific region, Gustavo and Nic Billman took a trip into the Sertão to visit a place that they had heard about. In that region it had not rained in over two years. While driving along the road they picked up a man that was needing a ride and he began to tell them about his village, about how his people were hungry and constantly sick from drinking contaminated water and that their livestock was dying. So they went with this man to his village and visited with the people there. Shortly after they drilled a well to the village and they have been working with those people and the surrounded villages ever since. In 2015 we opened a Shores of Grace base in that region establishing the i35 ministry.
