Our Communities ministry is all about breaking the cycles of poverty that lead to prostitution. We build relationships with those within the favelas, slums, and present the true Gospel message through our love, words, time, effort and resources. As long as poverty is a stronghold in these places, prostitution will always be a temptation to be the “quick way out”.
Our rescue home can only hold up to 20 children. However, there are still thousands of children on the streets. In Brazil, 18% of children are homeless. Some 8-year-old girls are already in prostitution and others are being abused and raped. Many boys of the same age have already killed others in the name of credibility. But we believe that in the arms of Jesus, there are no prostitutes or murderers, only sons and daughters. Each week, we go to a public square where many of these kids and their families are gathered. While it may be one of the darkest places, we have seen the Light of the World consistently meet us there.
