A Christian home is the foundation for raising children. Unfortunately, it has become a distant dream as families become increasingly drunk with the things of the world.
Time is a rare and valuable good, wasted on many things, but seldom spent with the family. Here at Brazil Kids, we receive children and youths who have never lived in a family atmosphere according to God's plan.
It's gratifying to apply God's word to the life of these children and adolescents. We notice that, when we test the practical effects of his word, we reap the results. The children learn what is biblical discipline and the change is visible.
In February, the group "Your Dream, My Dream," which helps us in our projects, took the children on a trip to the beach and to the municipal aquarium. There, they saw diverse species of marine life, and it served as a wonderful educational moment.
Many of the children had never had the opportunity to see the ocean, so it was a marvelous experience for them.
Visits by such groups as this one provide great satisfaction to the children and the giving and receiving of affection.
