Another update

Monday night we did a training with some of the project leaders and volunteers from Florestopolis. We taught them on how to do “object lessons”

Cool thing was that several of the volunteers we trained were young people who were once in the project. It has been one of the goals of Open Atms Worldwide to see their projects reproducing leaders like this. 

After the project, as Mike Myers was driving back to the church, he saw a mob of people in the street. He turned away to avoid getting involved in a situation. He Learned later from man in street there was some sort of lynching over a drug deal.  It’s just another example of the effects of sin in this community and how dark a place can become. 

This morning, Tuesday morning, we had about 40 kids at the project. One of the volunteers from Assis shared his testimony. He told the children that we was the son of a prostitute. The man who fathered him took responsibility and came back to his mother and they had another son. However, his father was not a good man and beat his mother. The family did not have enough money and his mother went back to prostitution. Also, another person in their home, maybe a maid of sorts, physically abused he and his brother. He told the kids at the project that he really has no family. The church is now his family. 

I’m not sure when and how yet he came to faith in Jesus, but he told me yesterday that he feels called to be a pastor.
