Day 5, Tuesday, 6/20
More awesome cafe (coffee) and new favorite fruit, papaya!
We went to The Happy House, Casa Crianca Feliz, a Presbyterian mission, run by a German, who came with his wife 27 years ago. Amazing godly man. He started this children’s mission from scratch in the “Hood.” The mission is surrounded by shacks, brick or sheet metal houses, and tarp shacks; we drove through it. Many drugs and some murders here, but it was safe for us. Don’t worry. We played with one group of children, ages 5-12, in the morning and another group in the afternoon. Gezer spoke, and a few testimonies were given. Americanos were a hit. We had many kids holding our hands and following us around, great kids, smiling, laughing, having fun, despite their circumstances. They have next to nothing. This is an awesome ministry that Klaus heads up. Sad to leave them.
Dinner at a burger place, where owners donated the meal. So nice, mega huge burger sandwiches, nothing like it in Estados Unindos! Once again, we were joined by Brazilian friends.
