About Recife and the ministry:
Recife, Portuguese for "reef," is known for its beautiful coastal reef shoreline, cultural roots and deep historical background.
SAM missionaries Craig and Mary Delille walked through Frei Damião, a forgotten section of Dois Unidos, on the outskirts of Recife, 15 year ago and knew right away they were called to this area.
Initially they worked to provide adequate housing to replace the patch-work tin and tarp-covered homes in which many families were living. They soon learned that behind the thin veils of these homes were other desperate needs like food and literacy training. Most notably, there was the need to know that God’s love extends to all, especially to the seemingly forgotten.
Today, Recife Redemptive Ministries desires to respond to the needs they encounter in South America by demonstrating God’s heart for the poor in their local communities. Having been in the community so long they have a directly link to the needs of the community members and amazing relationships that allow them to do ministry more effectively.
The people of Brazil are full of life even in the midst of some desperate situations and love when their American friends take the time to come visit and encourage them. Consider bringing hope to the beautiful people of Brazil by going on this mission trip.
The cost is $3,200 per person, which covers all travel, lodging, meals and ministry expense. Employees will receive a $500 mission grant.
