Recife Redemptive Ministry
From: $25 – subscription plan available
SAM missionaries, Craig and Mary Delille, walked through Frei Damião, a forgotten section of Dois Unidos, on the outskirts of Recife, Brazil, and knew right away their calling 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 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.
Partnering with local churches and like-minded NGOs such as City to City Latin America, Recife Redemptive Ministry responds to encountered needs in Brazil and works to gather believers as the body, together demonstrating God’s heart for the impoverished in their communities. We minister in peoples’ lives in ways that let them know that God and His people value them. One of those ways is to alleviate suffering by providing adequate housing, food, and clothing. Additionally, we invest personal time, teach, encourage, and counsel as a means of aligning lives with God’s priorities and will. Some specific ministries include home construction, food baskets, English classes, women’s groups, tutoring, computer training, a music school, and a soccer project.
