Ministry in Heliopolis

During our first afternoon in Heliopolis, we walked around the favela and invited children to come to our impromptu program that we were having that afternoon. When we stopped at one house, we met Jessica, a pregnant mother. Their incredibly small house was home for 11 people and she was worried about how to take care of another child. We prayed for breakthrough and she was very encouraged! At our outreach in the mission house, Mike led the kids in singing several Portuguese songs. One of the young kids came up and was singing out with Mike on the stage. It was the first time this had happened. We also performed the parable of the Prodigal Son which demonstrated more of Father’s love to the children to which they responded well. It is so good to be in Heliopolis. We are excited about the upcoming outreaches in this community and in the City of God community.
