Could you please uplift our prayer requests?
The Corona virus – because we’re isolated, it’s a good thing. Still, we live in close proximity to each other. Also, with some of our kids running away and returning as well as our staff being away, but eventually coming back, there’s always the threat of infection. Please pray that the Holy Spirit will protect us.
Health – Our house parent Anderson has been fighting a bad illness. One of our boys has pneumonia and is in isolation. Others are sick. We have some masks but they are of poor quality.
Crime - Outside of our gates, there is a lot of lawlessness going on. Street people are dying and it’s not the police who are doing it. Our cook Rosalena was recently robbed on the bus and her cell phone was taken. Please pray for protection.
Drugs – Most of the boys that are given to us are drug addicted and are detoxing now.
Discernment – Our office staff is not here but will be re-evaluated within two weeks. Should they come back? Should they stay away? With the Corona virus, it makes every decision so crucial.
Future – With the food shortages now, will we be able to acquire what we need a month from now? Will we be able to prevent the Corona virus from infecting our campus?
Family – Bella, our daughter has asthma attacks. Getting her to a Brazilian hospital in this current Corona environment is really hard. Please pray for her health to stabilize before they return to Brazil. We had planned for Marc, our son, to return to the U.S. in May to start at a new school. With the outbreak, everything is up in the air. Marc’s schooling is of huge importance to us, and finding the exact school to meet his needs (spiritual, educational, life skills, etc) is crucial. It is a heavy burden for us.
Thank you for your support and many heartfelt prayers. We need them! The Lord has provided each of you to be a blessing to us as we try to bless the youth of Brazil. To God be the glory!
