Camp Refuge 2021
The Refugio continues to minister to the individuals with disabilities in Northeast Brazil. Luiza passed away after falling out of bed, and hitting her head. She never recovered and will be deeply missed. Luiza would come bounding out for camp at the Refuge and we knew we were in for an adventure! She had a habit of wandering at night and needed someone to sleep in the same room with her. We knew who was appointed her guardian at night by the dark circles under their eyes the next morning! She climbed trees for fruit and would spend hours digging for clams at the beach. Her child-like joy made us laugh. She was truly a friend of "The Refugio."Dinalva and Peterson continue the work of sharing God's word and providing for physical needs. The pandemic has brought many hardships to individuals with disabilities. The Refuge has reached out to many with food, and others practical needs while continuing to distribute wheelchairs, walkers, and bath chairs.Your gifts continue to support the work of The Refugio. Plans for future outreaches with Joni and Friends are prayerfully being considered with camp and wheelchair distribution. We ask that you continue to pray for the ministry and support the work. Hebrews 12:1 "Let us run with endurance the race that is set before us."
