Mission work will be done in the Favelas (slums) of Sao Luis, Maranhão, in the northeast region of Brazil. Our teams will partner with a missionary family that was called to Brazil six years ago to work with children in some of the poorest neighborhoods. Projeto CASA offers Bible and Portuguese instruction to children in four neighborhoods. Teams may be asked to help in the following ways:  teaching Bible stories, holding sports camps, parenting and life skills training for adults, VBS, crafts, home visitation, prayer, sharing hope even when their circumstances cause them to believe they have none. The San Luis trip includes a possible “rest day” at the Lençóis Maranhenses National Park.
