A little way to say Thank you to people in Ministry

This summer there are over 40 people coming to visit WRBrazil on short-term trips. Each of those people will be allowed one personal bag and one bag of ministry items.
This is a great opportunity to supply the ministry with things that are difficult to get here in Brazil and also bless the people in ministry here.

The devaluing dollar has made travel more expensive than ever and the short-term missionaries (many of which are teens) are struggling to meet their expenses.

And so, we still need help purchasing and gathering many of those items.

Here is a list of families in ministry here in Brazil and some items they might enjoy. Everything on the list is just a suggestion, please feel free to personalize.

Please pray and consider picking one or more of the families listed. We have never done this big of a list before and we really want to show the people in ministry here that we appreciate their lives in Christ. We are praying that we will be able to give a gift to every family on the list.

Please contact Steve Turner at (317)840-1270 if you decide to participate in fulfilling part of this list.

P.S. I believe the Pen Drives have already been purchased for these families.
