Simone wrote and gave us an update of what is going on in Brasil right now.
They are enjoying their summer vocation, riding bikes, visitng and playing basketball. The kids from our project are gone for the summer break. Many kids from our project drop out after we left Brasil. We knew that some of them had plans to look for another basketball program to continue playing, but we were surprise for the other group that just quited going and being involved. The total number of kids that dropped out is about 80%. Our prayer is that Simone (picture) and Priscila would involve the younger kids (4th and 5th graders) for this year. They plan to begin in the last week of February.
Young boys from our project - Mateus Lima, João Victor, Silvio, Ramom and Simone.
Simone has been also involved with the city sports vocation program which involves kids 2nd -9th graders in sports and fun games. In this picture she is sharing the gospel with her group of kids using the colors bracelete.
